The Start Of A Beautiful Relationship!
on 11 April 2012
Now this was the album that really turned my attention to the growing artform of rock - and where better to start than with the combined talents of Marriott and Frampton on guitars and vocals and the rock steady rythmn section of Shirley and Ridley underpinning the whole project...this was pretty much the start that launched these four musicians into one of the hardest touring, hardest hitting arena bands that ever left these island shores after first having been pop idols not more than a handful of years prior to! What an amazing transformation!
This album, whilst very short, hits hard and fast with Live With Me with some fine vocals from both Marriott and Frampton with Frampton punching in neat frills and fillers throughout, One Eyed Trouser Snake Rumba, a typical Marriott double entendre heavy hitter and of course the stadium rocker; I'm Ready!
If you like Marriott's vocals and the jazzy guitar of Frampton, then this is without doubt sitting in your collection topped only by Performance: Rockin' At The Fillmore. For everyone else - what are you waiting for? This is pretty much where it all began 40 years or so ago......yet sounds as fresh today as when it first hit the streets.
