Never Forget Mott

Any record company that wants to keep the underrated legacy of Mott The Hoople alive is alright with me. So, there's little for me to complain about on Old Records Never Die: Mott The Hoople/Ian Hunter Anthology, the first comp to include tracks from Ian Hunter's Mott and solo years. If you own Columbia's 2disc 1993 Mott Retrospective or Columbia's 2000 Ian Hunter solo 2fer than you won't need this, but the uninitiated will. You get their Atlantic, Columbia and Ian's solo stuff on a handy 2 disc set that goes all the way up to Hunter's 2007 release. My only complaint is the absence of "Hymn For The Dudes", but outside of that, this is essential. It's Mott, why wouldn't it be?
