Marvin’s Temple and Shrine


If you listened to AAA radio in the mid 90’s here in the U.S., you probably heard this tune by Marvin Etzioni.

Etzioni released three solo albums under the name ‘Marvin’ after leaving Lone Justice. He was one of the founding members and the bass player. Since then, he’s produced albums by Toad the Wet Sprocket, Sam Philips, and Peter Case (among others), and done a lot of session work (his All Music bio is here).

I’ve always liked this tune. It’s a simple, sweet love song: “If you were mine, I would treat you like a temple and shrine.”
