Digitally re-mastered 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 7 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".
