Editorial Reviews

In January of 1970, The Masked Marauders were touted as a supergroup consisting of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger. The group and album were based on a fictional article publishing in Rolling Stone magazine on December 13th, 1969. Based on the hype, and the speculation that some of those artists may have actually been involved, it has been one of the most sought after collector's items over the past four decades. The album was even featured recently on Brian Williams NBC news program, Rock Center. This CD reissue contains the complete recordings issued on Deity Records in 1970.

An album that caused much curiosity as well as controversy when it was released late in 1969. The entire concept and mystique of The Masked Marauders (many would call it a hoax) was the brainchild of a then-staff writer at Rolling Stone magazine. From the beginning, the writer only intended it to be a joke, and pushed it to the extreme by printing a phony article about the band in Rolling Stone, as well as touting the upcoming release of the album. The joke obviously worked from the writer's point of view, but apparently, the record-buying public didn't get it.
The Masked Marauders were rumored to consist of Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon, Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan, all of whom supposedly performed on the record anonymously and without photos to preserve the "secrecy" (hence the group's name). This caused the rumor mill to churn, and public anticipation of the album was so high that people lined up in droves at record shops to buy it on the day it was released. But as it turned out, the Masked Marauders were indeed not the "supergroup" everyone thought them to be, but actually a group of struggling studio musicians calling themselves "The Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band". Confused? Don't feel bad, everyone else was, too!
The album's hilarious liner notes alone showed that it totally reeked of farce, with the aforementioned Rolling Stone writer composing them under the pseudonym "T.M. Christian". For those of you who don't understand what that means, "T.M. Christian" is a play on words for a Peter Sellers movie from that same period called "The Magic Christian", which also featured Ringo Starr. That probably explains why Ringo didn't have time to appear on the Masked Marauders album (tongue firmly in cheek there!

All too often an in-joke or obvious tongue-in-cheek reference is taken by the public as a straight story. A notorious example of this phenomenon occurred in 1969, when a joke review of a non-existent album featuring some of rock's biggest stars was printed in Rolling Stone magazine and prompted the release of a satirical imitation, which people then mistook for the real thing!

The saga began when rock critic Greil Marcus (under the pseudonym of "T.M. Christian"), prompted by a recent Rolling Stone article about sales of a double bootleg album of unreleased Bob Dylan material ("Great White Wonder," often cited as the first bootleg record) wrote a fictitious review of another "bootleg" album entitled "The Masked Marauders" for the 18 October 1969 issue of Rolling Stone. The name "Masked Marauders" was supposedly a flimsy deception employed by Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and others, all of whom had gotten together and recorded a "supergroup" album (allegedly produced by Al Kooper) that could not be released under their real names because they were all under contract to different record companies. Even though the "review" contained plenty of clues to indicate it was nothing more than a bit of humorous fun (e.g., the session was said to have been recorded "in a small town near the site of the original Hudson Bay Colony in Canada" and featured Paul McCartney singing "Mammy," Mick Jagger warbling "I Can't Get No Nookie," and Bob Dylan imitating Donovan), more than a few readers didn't get the put-on and went looking for the album at their local record stores.

Hey, I was there in the day when this was touted as the jam session of the 20th century. In the cold light of day, it doesn't live up to the hype. But then again, what does. It's fun and funny. 30 minutes of remembering Golden Gate park and how things "used to be". You don't have to take everything so seriously!

I owned tis on vinyl back in the seventies. I moved so many times back then, it got lost in the shuffle somewhere.
When I saw this online(I LOVE the internet), I had to have it.
One of the best parody of music ever.
Are you listening to the Stones, Bob Dylan, or who?
It is also quite funny.
