Mott the Hoople Part 2

Mott has a ton of rare material in the vault, might as well get stared covering the bases......"Very
Sticky Fingers" is a mishmash of this and that, a good  outtakes from "Mott" and "Dudes", a version of "All th Young Dudes" with Bowie on vocal, a version of "Sweet Jane" with Reed on vocal, an ancient version of "Loung Lizard" which would not turn up until Hunter's solo albums......not totally the greatest listening experience but a goldmine of rarities.

We have also for your inspection a remastered "All the Young Dudes" (yesterday's original was a vinyl rip), which is fleshed out with some demos, the UK single version of "One of the Boys, the title track with Bowie and Hunter sharing vocals, and one of the VERY few live "Sweet Jane" versions I think I have ever heard from Mott.

Along the same lines exists a three disc box, the "All the Young Dudes" box, with EVERYTHING you could imagine....an impromptu "Like a Rolling Stone".....tons of demos and 45 versions, "Midnight Lady" with Steve Marriott on vocal.....that's disc 1. Disc 2 serves as a sort-of "greatest hits" thing, pulling from "Dudes", "Mott" and "The Hoople", finding place for previously unreleased "Saturday Gigs" and "Foxy Foxy", also a live "Ballad of Mott" and a remix of "I Wish I Was Your Mother". Disc 3 is back to demo/live/singles mix, hard to imgine so much exists, check the track lists below for the complete contents.

Yet another "Dudes" themed comp is "Essential Young Dudes, Live and More", 2 discs of live tracks from here and there, and a trio of rare demos.

"Backsliding Fearlessly" is an commercially released comp of earlier material, including the great "Road to Birmingham", as well as digital versions of, say, "Thunderbuck Ram" and "The Moon Upstairs" if you didn't like my vinyl rips.

I don't think I'm going to include "Rock N Roll Queen", a collection of early single, due to overlap factor, I don't THINK there is anything there you can't find elsewhere here, if I am wrong just ask.

"Two Miles From Heaven" contains some rare stuff from the pre-Dudes, a vocal "You Really Got Me", a discarded mix of "Thunderbuck Ram", some other early versions of stuff that would turn up on "Dudes"

So much stuff.....how about a set of BBC recordings, from various vintages, but featuring some killer
takes on "Darkness Darkness" and "The Moon Upstairs", two of each of them actually.....gotta stop somewhere, so let's end with a digital version of ysterday's vinyl rip of "Live", the 30 year aniversary edition, expanded to a double disc with some extra material, notably from "The Hoople"......

LOTS more tomorrow, hope you guys make up a market for this kind of thing, because there is more to come.....good stuff, enjoy this!
