It is widely known that Mott the Hoople stopped being a cult band and officially became known as –glam" once David Bowie, a fan of the group's music, persuaded them to stay together after the band was close to calling it quits in 1971. The focus of this exclusive vinyl box set is on Mott's often overlooked, early years, as their first 4 albums were distributed by Atlantic Records in the U.S. These British Rock classics pre-date Mott's –glam years" and the one hit success they would eventually achieve with –All the Young Dudes." And while they showcase Hunter's penchant for Bob Dylan's style, they should not be relegated to the history books as merely derivative, but rightfully considered cult rock classics and trail blazing innovations that influenced the –glam" –punk" and –hard" rock movements of the 1970s.
