J J MARSH Music From Planet Marsh (2006)
JJ Marsh has been for the past few years the guitar foil for Glenn Hughes and now he has this solo album out with guests including the Flower Kings' keys wizard Thomas Bodin and drummer Thomas Broman (Glenn Hughes/Great King Rat/Electric Boys).
This really is a labour of love and the first three songs you could easily imagine Glenn Hughes singing on; indeed the bass lines are very Hughes funk style. 'Play the Game' really shines and the earthy Hammond sound adds greatly to the song.
The eleven minute 'The Change' certainly does go through some musical changes although it is more a musos delight than a casual listener's to be honest.
Enjoyable album that features some wonderful playing from JJ Marsh and a decent set of tunes stepped in 70's rock music. Worth a listen if you are a Glenn Hughes fans too.
