Thank You Rock Fans!! LP
With roots in classic Soul, British Invasion and Rockabilly, Detroit native Marshall Crenshaw has forged a very original and melodic form of crafting songs over the past 35 plus years in the music business. In the early days, Marshall was compared to Buddy Holly often, due in part to his portrayal of the doomed rock icon in the 1987 film, La Bamba.
In addition to his original songs, that have been covered over the years by notable artists such as Ronnie Spector, Robert Gordon, the Gin Blossoms, America, Freedy Johnston, Bette Midler, Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs to name a few, Marshall is an accomplished guitarist with a very jazz-oriented style of playing. Marshall launched his original trio in New York with his brother Robert on drums and Chris Donato on bass, recording “Something’s Gonna Happen” for Alan Betrock’s Shake Records in 1981. Soon afterwards, the trio was signed to Warner Bros. Records and his debut album, simply titled “Marshall Crenshaw,” was released in 1982 and included his biggest hit, “Someday Someway.”
Although Marshall has released many live albums throughout his career, this newly discovered unreleased performance found in Warner Music’s vault was recorded while he was touring in support of his debut release in 1982 and includes several songs seeing their first release on any format. Co-produced by Marshall, who supplied rare photographs and liner notes and mixed by Chris Stamey, this lovingly packaged live document provides a unique snapshot back to Marshall’s formative years as an artist and would fill a hole in his recorded live legacy.
