Hymn for the Dudes. One person found this helpful. Great collection of tunes running the entire history and output of the band. Recommended as a primer, or concise gathering of songs, for Mott the Hoople fans. I don't have a problem with Mott the Hoople nor the songs not their performances but the audio quality is atrocious as the volume is too low and the sound is too thin. Its like going out with a ravishing beauty and finding out she's the worst lover ever.

On a good sound system the audio on this 2 CD set is abysmal. Really nothing left to add. Awesome Band. Mott the Hoople was one of the most interesting British glam-rock bands of the 's.

They started their recording career with Island Records as a progressive rock band. They released 4 fine though uneven records for Island during , before they changed for CBS. This change combined with David Bowie producing his own "All the Young Dudes" for them gave the big breakthrough and a new profile as the rock'n rollers of glam rock.

David Bowie produced their first album "All the Young Dudes", and his touch his very apparent through-out the album. Only two track has been left out from that album, which along with the follow-up "Mott" was their most consistent record. Their song-writing matured during that period, and although the band was uncertain whether they would be able cope with Bowie's skill, when the recording's of "Mott" began, that self-produced album shows the band at the peak of their creativity.

Only one track is missing from the album. Unfortunately guitarist and songwriter Mick Ralphs was growing frustrated with Ian Hunter taking more and more of the spotlight, and he left soon after the release of "Mott". Spooky Tooth guitarist Luther Grosvenor Ariel Bender was recruited to take his place, but things never become the same again.

Their final studio album, the slightly chaotic and spotty "The Hoople", did contain some fine tracks and was a commercial succes, containing the two hit-singles "The Golden Age of Rock'n Roll" and "Roll Away the Stone"; but the spark had gone, and they spilt up in Besides their albums the band recorded some fine singles-only tracks; all of which are included here.

Hunter's ballad "Rose" is outstanding and it also became a live-favourite. I know many people were disappointed when neither appeared on the and get-togethers. Hope this makes up for it!
