Of all the albums I've heard by Terrible Ted, this has to be the weirdest, yet the most adventuresome. I picked up Marriage On The Rocks in Spain in the early 70's and maybe played it three or four times. Recently, I burned it to CD and have been playing it on my long commute to work. After a few listens, I realized I couldn't remember a thing off it from before; nothing sounded familiar. It was as if I was listening to it for the first time, and in a way, maybe I have been, as back in the day, it just didn't sink in.

Odd time signatures abound, along with a sense that this is a rock symphony versus a collection of songs. Throughout, you hear Ted's trademark guitar, mixed in with a bit of country and on the last song, surf vocals. In Cosmic Cabbage, I heard a flashback to the Beach Boys.

The vocals, what there are of them, are so tucked away in the background on most songs as to be nothing more than articulated vocal noises. Especially on the first side, I had to listen real close just to distinguish the random word here and there. Now I'll be the first to admit that I don't listen to the words anyway, but when the vocals are so subdued, it piques my curiosity.

Overall, it was quite a surprise, and a pleasant one. I've listened to it all the way through four times, and it passed my test of being memorable. Not for everyone, if you want to see Ted in a different light, you can't go wrong with Marriage On The Rocks. As a psychedelic oddball, it rates right at the top. Highly recommended.

Early Ted Nugent at his best. This is where he got his start, and if you want everything by Uncle Ted, then you gotta get this one too!

I bought this Lp when it came out and was blown away by the guitarwork in it. Instrumentally it is fascinating and his guitarwork has never been better than it is here. Well worth finding.

Of course, I'm biased. I prefer music with some fore-thought like fusion and progressive rock. "Marriage" holds up against many prog bands of the early 70s with its virtuosity and clever arranging. Late Uncle Ted goes back to the blues-based rock which to me isn't as interesting, but Marriage on the Rocks and its live follow-up Survival of the Fittest are gems.

This album is clearly like no other album Ted or Amboy Dukes made, which really is a shame because I love this album, Truly experimental rock here. I will leave the review of the album to the other re viewers.

What I will review here is the CD from Walhalla. What we have here is what appears to me is a copy from vinyl source which under careful listening through headphones you can hear slight imperfections and what appears to be digitally fixed album rumble and scratches in a couple of places. That said even if this is the case the CD still sounds awesome and I am happy with my purchase as there is no other way to get this except from vinyl and even more rare cassette. I have had the vinyl for years and recently purchased this CD version. Walhalla have done an excellent job at the packaging of the album art etc..too bad they didnt include any additional pics and tracks from the period.

I give the CD as well as the music 5 stars. Maybe someday Rhino will pick up this title and release it with the bonus tracks etc that we would love to hear and have. *****
