This is Mahogany Rush at their best. There is no guitar playing competition here. The influences are clearly audible. But there is pure creative genius experienced . If you are a fan of the blues and 1960's psychedelia. This is a musical experience for you.

HASH(0xa190e264) out of 5 stars Marinos Stunning Masterpiece Nov. 22 2008
By Trout Voice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a big fan of Rock Music since 1964 when I was 7 years old and fell in Love with the Beach Boys Music. As I grew older and my tastes changed I discovered many other great artists. But the day in 1974 that I listened to "Child of the Novelty" for the first time changed me for good. I've never been the same since. The music that Frank created for this record was written and recorded when he was 18-19 years old. Not that it matters about his age, but it's interesting to note. I recommend this music to anyone with an open mind to exploratory Rock directions. There is obvious Hendrix influence here but no rip off. The music on this disc is pure magic and though Frank Marino has released many fine records since this one I personally still consider it to be his finest. Bottom line here is that I'm only speaking from my own perspective, but, of the more than 3,000 albums that I own (in one format or another) I consider this to be the best all-around Rock Music Recording that I own. Five Stars is the most they'll let me give, so be it. The 2006 Remaster version sounds better than any version I've heard. That's all Folks...

HASH(0xa190e4b0) out of 5 stars One of the best rock albums of all time period ! March 2 2014
By chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you own a copy of Are You Experienced?, Led Zepplin II, Van Halen, Montrose, Bridge of Sighs or Blow by Blow then you should own Child of the Novelty too. It's that good. Maybe not as good a seller but definitely on the short list of guitar driven rock masterpieces. And yes there are some similarities between his playing and Jimi's. Number one, it's not a problem for me. It's heavy guitar and it's funky and it's far out. But it's style is uniquely Mahogany Rush. In some ways it's even more brash than any Hendrix studio album. IMO Frank deserves the Hendrix comparisons more for his live performances than his studio albums anyway. And if you were introduced to Mahogany Rush with the landmark first live album and stopped there then you missed the best parts. Number two, perhaps the reason the nickname of "the Reincarnatiom of Jimi Hendrix" stuck with him was because only he succeeds where others have failed. Frank Marino brings it. I have never seen anyone with more of a command of the instrument than Frank and he's not afraid to use it. But when you consider he was still a teenger when this album was made then you start to understand the hype.

Child of the Novelty is a very solid album, more so than any of his other albums and can stand up to most any classic rock album. It is my favorite Mahogany Rush album and I listen to it often. The songs are well written and well produced but the main attraction are the guitar solos. They are perfection. This isn't your typical blues based rock . It can get a little weird at times but that's what's cool about it. Mostly it just rocks! His other albums contain many wonderful songs and are all worth owning. But I can see where some of his music isn't really everyone's cup of tea. But not this one. This one is a must.

If you wanted my opinion of the best FMMR albums then here are my Top 5 : Number 1 Child of the Novelty 2 Real Live 3 Eye of the Storm 4 Tales of the Unexpected 5 What's Next The other albums have some truly great songs on them that must be heard and owned by any serious fan of electric guitar driven rock. And if you ever get the chance to see the truly amazing FMMR then take my advice and go. Just be prepared to have your mind blown.

I remember listening to this when it came out.Marino on this and Strange Universe are his two best efforts imho. Very influenced by Hendrix but like Trower, Marino is his own man. Highly recommended !!

HASH(0xa190e804) out of 5 stars Brilliance on vinyl, now, remastered by the man himself. Sept. 11 2014
By Brian Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Frank Marino and band always marched to the beat of their own drum. The music is brilliantly performed, well written, and uniquely different song to song. Each album is different from the last. Frank and band formed too soon to be appreciated as they should be. Sadly, if formed today, the biz wouldn't know what to do with his music. So, the early 70's was the best time and place for this powerful trio.

Frank's comparison's to Hendrix are numerous and tiring. He isn't Hendrix. I believe Frank Marino's music is exactly where Hendrix was heading. Listen with an open mind and tell me I'm wrong.

The best albums by this fine band include this one, Strange Universe, Mahogany Rush IV, Live (first one in 77), Juggernaut, and Real Live. Real Live is an engineering and mastering tour de force! All of their albums are good but these are the best.
