Editorial Reviews

Mott the Hoople, All the Young Dudes

Customer Reviews

The bonus material is great.
Thomas Collins
Although a Bowie written song, Mott had made it their own with Mick Ralphs' guitar playing and Ian Hunter's fantastic rap outro.
Kim Fletcher
As a musician and song writer this is one of my all-time favorite early seventies albums.
S. M. Robertson

The album from Mott the Hoople that was considered by most fans to be the End, the Beginning and the End. Confused? Let me explain. After four critically acclaimed, but poorly selling albums, numerous sell out shows all across Europe and early forays into the United States, the group of five musicians collectively known as Mott the Hoople decided to call it a day after a particularly disastrous concert in Switzerland. "The End".
Upon hearing this, David Bowie a huge Mott the Hoople fan, persuaded them to keep at it, gave them the song "All The Young Dudes", offered to produce their next album, persuaded Tony Defines to take the band onto his management label Mainman, buy them out of their contract with Island, and got them re-signed on a new contract to C.B.S. The Beginning.
Although all this brought Mott the Hoople, and particularly Ian Hunter, international success, it also hastened the departure of keyboard player Verden Allen, never to be heard of again on the international rock scene; and guitar player/second vocalist Mick Ralphs, who went off to form "Bad Company" with Paul Rodgers and we all know what's happened to them. The End.
But free from the pressures of their Island contract, Mott, under Bowie's guidance, produced an absolute corker.
Opening with a Rockin cover of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane", taken much faster than "Velvet Underground" would ever have dared, gave the album an eye opening start. Mott had never heard the original version before recording it just following what Bowie strummed on guitar. In fact, bass player Overend Watts thought the song was called "C.J." until he saw the song title written down on the album cover. Nonetheless, a great song and a particular favorite of Mr. Rock 'n' Roll, the D.J. at Tahitian Queen.

"All The Young Dudes" was the first Mott The Hoople album I ever bought, and over 30 years later it remains their finest moment. "Dudes" was the group's fifth album, and their last with all five original members (Verden Allen was the first to go, in January 1973). Some complain of Bowie's typically thin mix (cf. "Raw Power"), or the slight distraction of the ringing telephone during "One Of The Boys", but for me the silliness at the end of "Violence" on the followup, "Mott" is far more of an irritant. "Mott" is a fine meditation on the ups and downs of rock and roll life, but "Dudes" - as sexy, liberating, and haunting today as it was in '72, remains the groups most potent statement and viscerally powerful music. Note I say 'group,' for this is also the last Mott album with everbody in the band (except drummer Buffin) very much involved in the songwriting.

Of course, Bowie's title song is the centerpiece, but Mott's performance is passionate and definitive. Elsewhere the band rocks slow and steady ('Sucker') as well as fast and crunchy (the Stones-like 'Jerkin Crocus', vastly superior to "Mott's" too-similar 'Drivin' Sister'). Verden Allen's 'Soft Ground'is a fine song and great change of pace, but it should be noted that Mick Ralphs' 'Ready For Love' - all 7 minutes of it - beats the rather pat Bad Company version hands down and features some of Ralph's most lyrical playing on the marvelous, extended instrumental coda. Other selling points: Ian Hunter's passionate closer 'Sea Diver', which hints (but does not succumb to) the slightly melodramatic tendencies evident on Mott's next two studio albums, and fabulously appropriate cover art.

This newly expanded version, it should go without saying, blows the old Sony CD away.

This marvelous remaster of "All the Young Dudes" supercedes the British release of a couple of years ago. That version beautifully remastered by Ray Staff is captured here with the addition of bonus tracks taken from the "All the Young Dudes Anthology" and "2 Miles from Heaven". These include demo versions of "One of the Boys", "Black Scorpion" (a demo for "Moma's Little Jewel" at a brisker pace)and "Ride on the Sun" (a demo for "Sea Diver"). We also get an "audiomorph" of Bowie's unfinished demo of "Dudes" cross faded and mixed with Hunter's vocal version effectively creating a duet of sorts. This also was available on the "Dudes" anthology. Additionally we get the 45 edit for "One of the Boys" and live tracks drawn from the UK 2 disc release of "Live" (which was recorded two years after this album but that's a minor point. It would, however, have been better to release this with bonus tracks recorded by the original line up from the 1972-3 tour).

We also get liner notes discussing the making of the album but no song lyrics. There were other bonus tracks that could have been included from the band's years at Columbia. Those are, however, available on the limited edition "Dudes" anthology. Columbia has done a terrific job repackaging this 35th anniversary edition (that's if we're counting from the band's first release in 1969).

Just before the band recorded this album they had experienced three years of fruitless releases and were ready to break up. Every album they had made had been met with public indifference despite critical acclaim. Then along came David Bowie. He helped the band refashion itself into a glam rock band. Bowie streamlined their sound a bit but, more importantly, he came with a potential hit single he had written himself.
