With roots in classic Soul, British Invasion and Rockabilly, Detroit native Marshall Crenshaw has forged a very original and melodic form of crafting songs over the past 35 plus years in the music business. In the early days, Marshall was compared to Buddy Holly often, due in part to his portrayal of the doomed rock icon in the 1987 film, La Bamba. "Although he was seen as a latter-day Buddy Holly at the outset, He soon proved too talented and original to be anyone but himself" The Trouser Press.
Marshall launched his original trio in New York with his brother Robert on drums and Chris Donato on bass, recording Somethings Gonna Happen for Alan Betrock's Shake Records in 1981. Soon afterwards, the trio was signed to Warner Bros. Records and his debut album, simply titled Marshall Crenshaw, was released in 1982 and included his biggest hit, "Someday Someway." Crenshaws own version made #36 in 82. It would be Marshalls only solo Billboard Top 40 Pop hit. On the Cash Box magazine chart, the song went to #31 and reached #25 on Billboards Rock Tracks.
Despite his 4 subsequent WB studio albums not including hits, Marshall continued to record in the 1990s and 2000s, as well as write and record with other artists including Gin Blossoms ("Til I Hear From You") and the reunited MC5. He penned the title track from the 2007 film Walk Hard starring John C. Reilly, with the song being nominated for a Golden Globe Award. In 2011, he began hosting a radio show called The Bottomless Pit on WFUV in New York, featuring his vast collection of music.
Although Marshall has released many live albums throughout his career, this newly discovered unreleased performance found in Warner Musics vault was recorded while he was touring in support of his debut release in 1982 and includes several songs seeing their first release on any format.
