I was so excited to see this at the record store as it was Mott's greatest hits finally remastered and expanded then i found out the truth.
There are cuts or edits in several of the songs and it just makes me furious because there was absolutely no reason for it!
The cd is about 45 minutes long so it's not like there wasn't enough room. What a rip off!
They also could have included many more songs to make this special...but the commitment just wasn't there.
The piano intro to "All the way from memphis" is cut then the explosive guitar solo that concludes the song is faded out.
How can you destroy such a classic!
There's also a cut in one of the so called BONUS tracks in "One of the boys".
The song is faded out before the silence then the final roaring climax!
Now the thing that gets me is that Columbia Legacy usually does a good job in compiling these colections but not this time.
What a shame because Mott The Hoople deserves so much better.
o.f.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mott The Hoople's "Greatest Hits" Needs Much Improving! December 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Re-released, remastered and expanded with bonus tracks still doesn't make Mott The Hoople's "Greatest Hits" a good buy. Soundwise, I've never thought CBS's remastering was all that great, but this cd is an improvement over the older version. What gripes me, as the other reviewer has mentioned is that "All The Way From Memphis" fades out towards the end of the song, just where Mick Ralph's guitar solo begins. This is a terrible mistake on CBS's part. There are also noticable ommissions here such as "Jerkin' Crokus", "Drivin' Sister", and "Crash Street Kids". These could have easily been added as bonus tracks seeing as though the entire cd's running time is less than 47 minutes. That said, you do get the big hits such as "All The Young Dudes", "Hymn For The Dudes", "Honaloochie Boogie", "Roll Away The Stone", "The Golden Age Of Rock N' Roll", "The Ballad Of Mott" and the above mentioned "All The Way From Memphis", to name a few. A better choice, and not much more money, would be "Mott The Hoople: A Retrospective" which is a two cd collection and makes this cd pale in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're looking for the hits, this is it. December 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Mott the Hoople became a "glam" band during their years with Columbia, but they never really fit that category musically. They released some of the best rock available in the early 70s, and the Mott LP is considered a 70s classic. This CD collects the singles from that era, including tracks from All The Young Dudes, Mott, and The Hoople. The tracks here are the single edits as they appeared on 45 and heard on the radio. The version of Roll Away The Stone is a rarity. Mick Ralphs plays the guitar solo in the single version included here. The solo was re-recorded by his replacement, Ariel Bender (nee Luther Grosvenor), for the version that appears on The Hoople LP. This CD is, indeed, a must for completists.

The bonus tracks are LP tracks that were edited for single release and used as b-sides. However, two excellent non-LP b-sides - Rose and Rest In Peace - are missing. They are available on the more comprehensive 2 CD The Ballad of Mott: A Retrospective.

If you're looking for "just the hits" presented as you heard them on the radio, this is a fine intro to one of the best, most influential, and often overlooked bands of the 1970s. If you'd like a broader overview (including a taste of the band's pre-glam era), pick up The Ballad of Mott.
