CD Reviews

Great live Mott the Hoople CD
08/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD shows the power of Mott the Hoople live! This CD has most of "Brain Capers", one of the best heavy metal albums of the early 70's, played live. I am an Ian Hunter fan, but Mick Ralphs is terrific on this CD, makes me sorry he left the band when he did! Well worth the money for any Mott fan."
Hoople Excellence
Todd E. Carper | Edgewood, Md United States | 06/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd is essential for those who want a glimpse of the early Hoople. This cd contains an alternate version recorded for the BBC of Thunderbuck Ram by Mick Ralphs a song that rocks with a vengeance. Mick shows off his skills as both a vocalist and song writer as well as showing his considerable chops as a guitar slinger. If you like your songs primal and full of bite this song is a must. The other studio trax include another Ralphs essential in Whiskey Women, and Darkness Darkness. Ralphs shines throughout as does Verden Allen on organ and the underrated backbone of the band Overend Watts. Ian Hunter provides the perfect foil for Mick Ralphs on his epic song the Journey, complete with the Hunter mystical imagery and wordsmithing and his take on the Dylan/the Stones street smart rockarama The Original Mixed up Kid as well as Let Death Be your Santa Claus. The CD has an excellent CD booklet which details more of the Hoople history and a detailed account of Hoople's BBC exploits. This is an essential Disc for any true Hoople fanatic as it showcases the talents of all the band members. Pick this up if you are lucky enough to find it, and enjoy!!"
Hoople at the BBC

"mott the hoople fronted by the great ian hunter the cork-screwed hair genius this is a cracking live session from the BBC vaults a true golden mine of an album with the hoople at their punkiest sleaziest and rockiest best damn they had great songs and a great singer ian hunter one of the best and he was inducted into the classic rock hall as one of the greatest songwriters
oh yeah baby "we're not bleeding we're feeding you but you're too f******* slow" a classic nasty yet great line from the mouth of the hunter
and whoever the presenter is they make me laugh at how stupid and dorky the radio used to be.using all the buzz words of the time and sounding idiotic well that was the times and mott the hoople rock the dust with the punks which would soon be sweeping the globe
