4.0 out of 5 stars A must for any of Roger's long-time fans. January 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is not a CD for the casual listener, but is essential to the collections of all long-term fans of Roger McGuinn. The CD is, essentially, an up-close and personal musical seminar from the renowned folk-rock, Rickenbacker 12-string artist. Roger's roots are squarely in the folk tradition, and those roots have sustained his music for 4 decades. The CD largely contains live solo performances (there are two excellent studio "bonus" tracks with a fine backing band). The format for most of the CD has Roger introducing each song with personal stories relating to them. In his recent career, Roger has been returning to his fans a lot of the warmth and openness that they provided him during his earlier years, and this CD is reflective of that effort. Thanks, Roger.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT LIVE PERFORMANCE BY MCGUINN September 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There isn't very many artists out there who can record a live album accompanied only by an acoustic guitar, and expect to hold my attention for very long. But Mcguinn pulls it off effortlessly with his combination of great Byrds classics, great singing, and of course the unique sound of that Rickenbacker guitar. Mcguinn is like a one man band when he gets his 12 string cranked up. You really get a nice full sound here. Except for the opening cut "Heartbreak Hotel", where you can tell the soundboard man was still tweeking the sound of Mcguinn's vocals, this is a beautifully recorded live album. Some of my favorite tracks here is "Daddy Roll Em", I love this one, and it rocks. A great electric version of Mr. Tambourine Man". "Eight Miles High", which I didn't think would sound that good coming from just an acoustic guitar. Boy was I wrong! Some amazing fretwork on this one. And there are 2 very nice bonus tracks, "Fireworks", and "May The Road Rise" that were recorded in the studio with a full band backing. In between all the music, Mcguinn has plenty of great Byrds stories to offer, that adds to the lustre of this whole live package. Live From Mars" is a classy and entertaining cd that only a musician like Mcguinn, with 35 years of playing experience can pull off this well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, acoustic McGuinn September 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Roger McGuinn was, and is, the very best of folk rock singers. On this record he tells, with his very personal sence of humour and self-distance, about his musical history. But even greater are the musical parts where McGuinn performs some of his many hits on an acoustic twelve-string. Especially in Daddy roll'em and the acoustic version of Chestnut mare (which i'd actually never heard before) he shows that his wonderful voice sounds best when there are no drums or electric guitars to destroy it. As a bonus, there are two new studio tracks in the end. The better of the two, May the road rise, is also in the live part of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars representative of his concerts August 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is exactly what McGuinn is like live. He talks about the songs, preaches a little, connects with his audience and gives you a greatest hits show.

If you are a fan of him (not the Byrds), this is a very good live album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sample of Roger's solo shows during this period January 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Live From Mars offers a terrific sampling of Roger McGuinn's work as a solo artist during the mid-nineties. The shows during that period took fans from McGuinn's teenage years through the folk era and on through his commercial success as lead singer and guitarist in the Byrds. During the 1960s many considered the Byrds to be America's answer to the Beatles, and one could make a strong argument for that.

This disk features great storytelling and tremendous musical range. Highly recommended.
