Mott the Hoople Retrospective On Its Way

Mott the Hoople Retrospective On Its Way

A comprehensive 3-CD set of Mott The Hoople and Ian Hunter solo material is to be released next month.

Entitled “The Journey” – the set includes Mott’s recordings from when they burst onto the glam rock scene in the late ‘60s – through to Hunter’s solo career.

Highlights across the three discs include obvious classic top 3 hit, the Bowie written “All The Young Dudes”, "One Of The Boys", and "All The Way From Memphis" – the latter track featuring Roxy Music’s Andy McKay on saxophone.

"Saturday Gigs" - Hunter’s last single before quitting in late ’74 – brilliantly betrays the weariness of the band about to break.

“The Journey” includes three previously unreleased tracks from Ian Hunter’s infamous “Rant” sessions, as well as new liner notes with never seen before photos of Mott The Hoople at their glam peak.

“The Journey-– A Retrospective of Mott the Hoople and Ian Hunter” is released through SonyBmg on November 13.
