MacArthur biography
US foursome MACARTHUR was formed sometime in the late 1970's, consisting of Ben MacArthur (vocals, guitars), Bill Hefflefinger (guitars, keyboards, programming), Donald Stockford (bass) and Jeff Bauer (drums). While sources about them are scarce it would appear that they were an active live unit in their local area. But it was some years after the band folded that they gained recognition. In their initial lease of life they had released to limited quantity vinyl LPs, MacArthur and MacArthur II, issued in 1979 and 1982 respectively. These productions became sought after items in the collectors market, that the music on these albums had qualities not appreciated at the time of their release adding additional value to these items beyond the limited number of copies available.

MacArthus reformed in 2006, their current line-up consisting of permanent members Ben MacArthur (vocals, guitars), Donald Stockford (bass) and Chuck Harrington (drums). David Asher (keyboards) lends his talents when needed, first and foremost for live purposes. And while talk and rumours about reissuing their original albums as well as the band recording and releasing new material have circulated, nothing substantial has come to pass yet. Avid collectors might note the existence of one bootleg however, as their first album was bootlegged in 1980 as The Black Forest.

Review by marwood

4 stars I really didn't know what to expect from this: never heard of MacArthur in all my puff. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement indeed!

I like to think that I have pretty wide-ranging taste in music, but I always return to prog eventually. Especially prog with an 'edge', with nice 'crunchy' guitar. MacArthur fit that predilection very nicely. This is late era (1979) edging towards Neo-Prog. Guitarist Ben MacArthur is the star of the show here. that's not to dismiss the other musicians (keyboardist Bill Hefflefinger shines, particularly on the last track, 'Shock of the New'). So what do MacArthur sound like? Well no-one in particular, although the last few tracks could probably stand being described as a rockier sounding Supertramp.

The highlight of the album, for me anyway, is Generations/First Contact (with its slightly naff sci-fi lyrics excepted!)

Any gripes? Well the production leaves a bit to be desired and sometimes guitarist Ben sounds like he is about to shoot his fingers off the fretboard, but other than that this is a wee gem!

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
