Mott the Hoople - Two Miles from Live Heaven (2001) Retail CD
When I heard Angel Air were releasing another Mott The Hoople live album, I wondered if it would be sufficiently good to please the many Mott fans. I thought surely there can't be any more decent live material out there. How wrong could I have been. Two Miles From Live Heaven is a masterpiece. It has definately been worth the wait. Sound quality is much better than I had hoped. For all fans of Mott The Hoople, this album is a must. It will surely take over the best selling album slot for Angel Air releases. Of course, what sets this album apart is not only the good quality live recordings, butmore… the four demo tracks that are included on the first disc. Death May Be Your Santa Claus is a familar track but the studio banter that starts the track is not for your children's ears! The Ballad Of Billy Joe sees Ian doing what he does best- a ballad at the piano. Although the lyrcis are few and far between, it's a real gem. Two demo tracks featuring Mick Ralphs end Disc 1; If Your Heart Lay With The Rebel and It Would Be A Pleasure. Disc 2 has the more familar live set from 1974- the CD booklet doesn't actually say where the live sets were recorded but it must be the full version of the familiar bootleg "The Whizzkids Meet The Concrete". There is more talking from the band in between songs than I have heard on previous versions of the gig, and again the sound quality is right up there with the best live recordings. The tapes for this were taken from the collection of Mick Ralphs and Overend Watts. If you need any persuasion to buy this double CD set, then what can I say- you must be a very casual fan! The booklet has some excellent and rare photos of Mott The Hoople supplied from the personal collections of Mick Ralphs and Dale Griffin. Liner notes are by Keith Smith. All in all, a really good release. Definately worth the 5 stars I have rated it. END
