Product Overview

Digitally Remastered Edition of Mott the Hoople's Swan Song, Originally Released in 1974. The Follow-up to their Critically Acclaimed "Mott" Album Featured a Refocused Band, Following the Departure of Mick Ralphs (Who Left to Join Bad Company) and the Arrival of Ariel Bender (Aka Luther Grosvenor, from Spooky Tooth). It was Hunter's Show Though and all the Stops were Pulled for this Manic Thrust of Energy. Kicking off with the Goodtime Rocker "The Golden Age of Rock N Roll", We Immediately Plunge Into the Dramatic "Marionette" and Soon Into the Manic "Crash Street Kids". This Special Expanded Edition Includes Seven Bonus Tracks, Including Studio Recordings with Mick Ronson (Who Had Replaced Bender on Tour) plus a Live Version of "Golden Age..." Prefaced by a Snippet of Don Mclean's "American Pie".

Album Notes and Credits
Mott The Hoople: Ian Hunter, Ariel Bender, Dale Griffin, Morgan Fisher, Overend Watts.
After 1973's MOTT, a loosely structured concept album about life in a rock & roll band, the only obvious choice for a follow-up was 1974's THE HOOPLE, a loosely structured concept album about the overall state of rock & roll in the mid-'70s. Opening with "The Golden Age of Rock and Roll," a half-serious, half-satiric look at rock & roll's past, the album continues with the darkly cynical "Marionette," and a pair of classics about teenage life, the sympathetic "Born Late '58" and the proto-punk "Crash Street Kids." The last of these makes obvious the Clash's debt to Mott the Hoople (Clash guitarist Mick Jones was an enormous Mott fan, and lobbied for the band's producer, Guy Stevens, to come out of retirement to produce their classic LONDON CALLING in 1979). THE HOOPLE is a snapshot of the mid-'70s rock & roll scene that foreshadows the impending rise of punk.
Professional Reviews
Q (10/00, p.146) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Finds frontman Ian Hunter and co. camping it up in fine glam-rock style..."
Uncut (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Added to THE HOOPLE is Mick Ronson's only studio contribution as a band member, the nostalgic, valedictory 'Saturday Gigs'."
Record Collector (magazine) (pp.98-99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here are great songs here....The intelligence and proto-punk aggression of Mott's work is evident throughout."
