Widely considered one of rock's most auspicious debuts, the critically acclaimed Marquee Moon now features an additional 30-plus minutes of music! Marquee Moon's five bonus cuts includ four previously unreleased tracks- alternate versions fo signature songs "See No Evil", "Friction," and "Maruquee Moon," plus an untitled instrumental. Marquee Moon includes the full length version of "Little Johnny Jewel" on CD for the first time in it's entirety.

The licks and riffs they play are deceptively simple cliches and yet they pull it off brilliantly. Not a single weak track here at all.
Now this version has been released in a mini lp replica sleeve design which pretty accurately recreates the original lp design. We all know that for years now, the Japanese have been the masters at mlps cds and they still have the edge over Rhino at least for now. The Japanese have the good sense to include a plastic sleeve for the cd to prevent dust and more importantly scratches from damaging the shiny side of the cd. Otherwise, the outer cardboard sleeve is well done and is good quality unlike some of the other mlps versions I've seen out there that have flimsy or poor quality, thin cardboard covers. I don't actually mind the fact that there are no bonus tracks as I feel that most of the time, bonus tracks do not add to the enjoyment of the original album tracks and many a time actually spoils the listening enjoyment when they are countless outtakes or alternate takes of album tracks or worse interviews and obvious filler material. Too bad the sound hasn't been remastered as well as the digipak version of this album where the sound quality is still better than it is here.
Otherwise, if you don't mind the propensity for the lack of proper plastic protection for the cd to result in scratches on the data/music side of your cd, then for lovers of the mlps format, this may be a worthwhile addition to your other punk rock albums. Overall, I like the whole Rhino Replica idea but I hope they'll take my comments seriously and seek to better protect the discs from damage and also seek to remaster and hence improve the sound quality of future releases. The following are just some of the albums I'd love to see as Rhino Replicas:
"Harvest" - Neil Young
"Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" - Neil Young
"Deja Vu" - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
"Back In Black" - AC/DC
"Partners In Crime" - Rupert Holmes
"No Goodbyes" - Daryl Hall & John Oates
"Abandoned Luncheonette" - Daryl Hall & John Oates
"Not Fragile" - Bachman-Turner Overdrive
"The White Album" - Average White Band
"Centerfield" - John Fogerty
(all remastered with plastic cd protecting sleeve in addition to the paper sleeve and please no bonus tracks)
