Fairfield Hall, Live 1970 is a live album by Mott The Hoople.
It was recorded in Croyden in the UK on 13 September 1970.
This is recorded well before David Bowie rescued them with the hit single All The Young Dudes.
One track from the concert, Keep a Knockin’ was previosly included on the Wildlife studio album released in March 1971. Their producer, Guy Stevens didn’t think the rest of the concert was good enough and their plans to release a live album were postponed.
In retrospect, it looks like Guy Stevens was wrong as the album has its own charms. It finds them rocking hard but without the brutal attack of the 1973/74 Mott the Hoople Live.

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.

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
Welcome To The Club is the first live album recorded by Ian Hunter after he left Mott The Hoople. It was recorded over seven nights at The Roxy, West Hollywood in November 1979 on the tour to promote the studio album You’re Never Alone with a Schizophrenic.
His band included former David Bowie and Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ronson and his fluid guitar solos are one of the big reasons for the popularity of this album.
It’s a much more subtle album that Mott the Hoople Live, with the songs give room to develop. It also includes four new songs recorded live in the studio at the end.
The CD release has seen four new live recordings added to the album – One of the Boys, The Golden Age of Rock ‘n’ Roll, When the Daylight Comes and a Medley of Once Bitten Twice Shy/Bastard/Cleveland Rocks.
