Better Than Live - Winner of a 2007 "Rennie" award for Best New Album
This, Marooned's second CD is both a radical departure from , and a return to, their musical roots. While songs like Barrett's Privateers will be familiar to past attendees of "Captain's Song Time", other songs, like the Dutchman and My True Love are not only new, but also carry with them a musical richness and complexity unlike anything Marooned has ever performed.
Don't worry that your favorite song mightn't be on the CD (though it may well be) because assuredly some of your NEW Marooned favorites will be.
"Better Than Live", is a studio album in the best connotation of the word. Marooned, unbound by distance, has brought together a great number of members, past and present, to appear on this album and to make this the "Marooned show you'll never hear on-stage."
All songs and arrangements traditional except:
Hoist the Colours by Elliot, Rossio, Zimmer & Verbinski
Watches by Tom Lewis
My True Love by Melissa Richardson
Fair Maiden's Ghost by Bob Brinkman
The Derelict arranged by Janna McCall Geller & Mallory Geller
