Mott The Hoople’s nasty fusion of heavy metal, glam rock, and Bob Dylan’s sneering hipster cynicism provided the groundwork for many British punk bands, most notably The Clash. Lead by vocalist/pianist Ian Hunter they subverted rock & roll conventions with a tough, muscular sound that kept the group firmly in hard rock territory, even when flirting with homosexual imagery and glammy makeup. This great value 2CD set gives the listener the chance to experience them live at arguably the height of their career.
