Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 4/12/91
"...The band's 1969 debut...was a bracing mixture of self-consciously Dylanized vocals, power guitar and churning organ swirls...contains reckless but successful undertakings..." - Rating: A
NME (Magazine) - 2/13/93, p.31
8 - Excellent - "...it was the raucous rendition of The Kinks' 'You Really Got Me' which would determine the next three years. It became a live favorite, grew to an apocalyptic 20 minutes in length and turned Mott The Hoople into the wildest rock & roll experience Britain has ever seen..."

Product Description:

Mott The Hoople: Ian Hunter (vocals, piano); Mick Ralphs (guitar, background vocals); Verden Allen (organ); Overend Watts (bass); Buffin (drums).
Recorded in July 1969. Includes liner notes by Keith Smith.
From the brilliant cover illustration by M.C. Escher to what nearly every critic called a "straightfaced" version of Sonny Bono's "Laugh At Me" (as though it was impossible to perform it any other way), Mott The Hoople's debut album showed that they were clearly no ordinary post-psychedelic British band. Their original material, particularly guitarist Mick Ralph's "Rock And Roll Queen," presaged the glam sound for which they would later become renowned. Appropriately, Mott The Hoople was produced by the inventive (and seriously whacked) Guy Stevens. A decade later, the Clash, who were strongly influenced by Mott The Hoople, called upon him to produce LONDON CALLING.
