(Majestic Rock MAJDVD002) (2004)
Blink-and-you'll-miss it pop rock from sometime Whitesnake warrior...

Many rock fans will have blinked and missed this hard rock outfit who, despite recording two strong AOR / melodic rock LPs, never received much attention.

Formed by former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, the band also featured Rainbow (and current Deep Purple) ivory tinkler Don Airey and fine vocalist Rob Hawthorn.

This was a far cry from Marsden's previous (or subsequent) bands, playing a polished pop/rock.

Strengthened by Airey and Hawthorn, who in places gives a Rush like feel, this is a good live set. Recorded the year after they supported Purple at Knebworth, this DVD continues to show that the band were much stronger on stage. Many of the band's better tracks are here, including ‘The Pack' and ‘SOS' (the latter was the band's original name).

The set is tightly performed and well directed too, but the recording quality is far from perfect.

Unfortunately (or fortunately for blues rock fans) the band didn't last too much longer and Bernie is back recording with fellow ‘Snake Micky Moody.

All things must move on, and this is a fine snapshot of history. Of very limited appeal but very enjoyable all the same.
