Best Mott the Hunter Live Album Or Ian Hunter Live Album

This article includes a readers poll where you can vote for the best live album recorded by Mott the Hoople or Ian Hunter and see the results of the votes so far.

Background

Mott The Hoople are best known for their cover of the David Bowie song, All The Young Dudes and other excellent singles that were linked to British glam rock.

Their origins were more humble. The band originated from the English county of Herefordshire and were called The Doc Thomas Group, then The Shakedown Sound and later, as Silence. Guy Stevens of Island Records liked the group but didn’t like the lead singer. Out went Stan Tippins and in came Ian Hunter.

Whilst in prison, Stevens read the Willard Manus novel Mott the Hoople and proposed that as their name. Continue reading Best Mott the Hunter Live Album Or Ian Hunter Live Album

The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers Live

Sticky Fingers is one of the best studio albums by The Rolling Stones and, indeed, one of the best studio albums by any group at any time.

It was recorded between 1969 and 1971 and released in April 1971 and features the classic song Brown Sugar.

It has a notorious album cover featuring the groin of a man and the original vinyl sleeves had a real zip for the fly. The back cover is even more revealing as the denim jeans have come off.

We don’t have a live album from tours promoting Sticky Fingers or the next album, Exile On main Street so the songs haven’t made as many appearances as you might expect on the many live recordings by The Rolling Stones.

In May 2015, The Rolling Stones performed the entire Sticky Fingers live in concert and the recording has been released as Sticky Fingers Live.

This article also needs to be updated for recent releases including the re-releases of the Sticky Fingers studio album with live tracks from 1971.

Genesis Selling England By The Pound Live

In this article I want to look at how the great studio album Selling England By The Pound has featured on the Genesis live albums.

This put Genesis into the singles charts with I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe).

I believe it’s one of the three essential Genesis Studio albums along with Foxtrot and A Trick Of The Tail.

Generally I think Genesis sound better live.
