Editorial Reviews

Even while singing of heartbreak and despair, Mott got as loose and rocking as they ever did on this 1973 powerhouse: Violence; Whizz Kid; Drivin' Sister; All the Way from Memphis, and more. As with All the Young Dudes, this marks the first remastering for this LP, expanded here with the rare Rose and three demos and live cuts never issued in the U.S.!

Of course, it was too good to last.
Tim Brough
The result was "Mott" a record that not only topped most critics' best of lists that year, but stands the test of time as one of the best rock albums ever made.
John D. Pride
"Ballad of Mott the Hoople" and "Hymn for the Dudes" are Dylan done with flash.

Mott the Hoople had covered lot's of ground since the first album was released way back in 1969. Described as "Dylan's, Blonde on Blonde meets spacey roller skating rink music" the band had nothing to prove to me by the 1973 release of their 6th record " MOTT ". I was a crazy off-kilter teenaged wasteland and their music was the soundtrack of my life. Still I was upset over "Dudes" as not being the best way to represent this great band. Sorry to tell you kid's, but once you labeled Mott the Hoople a 'Glam' band you all but destroyed them!

"All The Young Dudes" turned Mott the Hoople into serious "Corporate Product" and ripped the guts out of their center. The great Verden Allen left the band after being labeled one of: "Bowie's Chldren " and then the death blow came right after the release of this album with the departure of guitartist Mick Ralphs.
Ian Hunter, was non to happy of the labels being slapped upon this great band after David Bowie's production on "All the Young Dudes " became their commercial breakthrough to AM radios in the United States. And on "Mott " he now had something to prove that Bowie DID NOT invent this band. In his anger and the loss of Allen the songs flowed and the group took over production to disprove it was all a 'Magic Act' from the gods of glam.

Proof that greatness was still lighting the fires of rock was: "All the Way From Memphis" (as used in the film "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" by the son when he is pissed off at his mother, and he blasts it at her). "Hymm for the Dudes" shows the band want's to break their ties to all things glam, But refuse to throw out their platform shoes just yet. "Drivin' Sister" is flat out rock, and one of the best songs writen and performed by ANYONE! and in it's simple drive, it is PERFECT .

Tremendously great LP. By far, the best studio LP Mott the Hoople ever cut, although "All The Young Dudes" (also reissued today by Sony Legacy) and the easily-obtainable import "Mott the Hoople Live (1974 - expanded 30th Annivesary Edition)" also are necessary to round out any truly great musical collection. This reissue of "Mott" doesn't stray too far from the original warm, fat sound found on the LP, although it is clearer than the 1988 CBS CD version. The only difference I could detect in this reissue and that first CD pressing is there's a bit of horns near the beginning of "All The Way From Memphis," right before Ian Hunter's vocals come in for the first time, that aren't on the original 1988 CD. Who knows, maybe the 1988 CD omitted the horns, if they were originally recorded in 1972/73 but not not used, either on the vinly LP version of the first CD. Whether the horns were originally on the LP or not (I have the vinyl but my turntable is inactive) remains a mystery to me.

However, that is the only artistic difference I noticed in the new CD version, and it really doesn't take away from the wonderful vibe that runs rampant through "Mott." Everything else seems to be the exact same vocal takes, guitar parts, bass, drums, etc. Also, this CD reissue includes the complete piano introduction to "All the Way From Memphis," which mysteriously was cut off from Sony Legacy's 2003 reissue of "Mott the Hoople Greatest Hits." Fans will feel the comfort when they hear the piano-pounding back in its proper place on "Mott." Guitarist Mick Ralphs' mandolins on Hunter's exceptional "I Wish I WasYour Mother" really jump out more on the remastered version, solidifying the fact that this cut, despite its odd title, is one of the greatest songs the British group ever cut.

The booklet that comes with every copy of 'Mott' contains this description from 'Rolling Stone': "The best album from the best band of the early-seventies." I don't quite buy into the idea that Mott the Hoople was the best band of the early-seventies, but 'Mott' is definitely one of that decade's shining lights.

Melodic, wistful and rocking, 'Mott' remains the sole album where this star-struck band was able to put it all together. It oozes disillusionment, testament to their one step forward, two steps back existence as they continually battled indifference and inter-band conflicts.

True to form, no sooner had they finished recording their breakthrough than guitarist Mick Ralphs left to form Bad Company, leaving a hole in the band that would never adequately be filled.

The band was perfectly balanced by Ralphs' economical but highly-effective guitar playing, and Ian Hunter's dramatic vocal style. While Hunter's vocal mannerisms could be a bit over-the-top at times, the contrast was powerful, and each seemed to complement the other.

Always literate, Mott had a talent for depicting a certain lost grandeur and melancholy that was very English. It couldn't have been lost on Hunter how Mott's fortunes mirrored those of England at large. But when the mood seized them, they could rock with utter abandon. "All The Way From Memphis", "Honaloochie Boogie" and "Whizz Kid" are the honking, stomping proof.

'Mott's bonus tracks are strong, and Bruce Dickinson's remastering is wonderful. It leaves the band's heft intact while articulating sonic detail and separation. To anyone who grew-up listening to 'Mott' on vinyl, it is a revelation.

Best of all, 'Mott' remains untouched by classic rock radio. So anyone wanting to taste this wonderful slice of seventies rock needn't worry about an expired freshness date.

Thank you Sony/Legacy from the very bottom of my heart.
