Format: Hardcover
I'm not one for book reviews, but after reading this book I have to say something.

If you like Motorhead you have to get this. Everything about this book is worth having, from the info inside it to the excellent cover.

Personally I think there are far too may books about lots of bands , but hardly any about Motohread. Thankfully though the few books there are in publication about Motorhead are total quality and this is no exception.

Motorhead - in the studio details the making of every Motorhead album from the early days right up to Motorizer in 2008. Interesting to see how the band works , ie how they come up with the songs , how they are recorded etc: The book makes for nice reading and paints a good atmospheric picture of what it was actually like to be there at the time the albums were recorded.

I especially like the fact that this book pays as much attention to Motorhead 1993 onwards as it does to early Bronze age Motorhead. Many publications or articles about Motorhead seem to think they retired in 1982 for some reason unbeknown to me? I don't understand this when anyone with a brain can tell you their last 4 albums have been the best so far.

As I said I'm not one for book reviews so to conclude, this book is well worth buying, gives a good insight into the process of making a Motoralbum, the working relationships between band and studio personnel and also some interesting factoids as to what was going on in the Motorhead camp at the times these albums where made.

If your a Motorhead fan buy it. Simple.

If your not a Motorhead fan.................you should be.

Format: Hardcover
This was an incredible book that definitely decreased my ignorance level about how albums are recorded. It's a detailed look "behind the scenes" of making the Motorhead records. I had given insufficient credit to the importance of a producer, engineer, and mixer to the album's final sound. It's fascinating to get their input and how they shaped the sound. Now when I think about a Motorhead album, I think far more about the producer.

This book is not only for the big Motorhead fan. It's also for people who are interested in the music industry. I highly recommend it.

This is the book every Motorhead fan has been waiting for, and Jake Brown has done an amazing job in tracking down the surviving producers and engineers, allowing them to tell their story.
Much of the Motorhead input, I must add, has been taken from Lemmy's 'White Line Fever' autobiography, Internet interviews, and the press; rather than the band sitting in with Brown and simply repeating what they'd already said; and probably by now forgotten.
But it works. And it must have been something of a huge literary jigsaw in getting everything linked together, but it reads superbly, is accurate, (even if he did misname their No 1 album as 'Live At Hammersmith' in one instance!), and is a fantastic insight into the studio side of Motorhead recording all of their albums from 'On Parole' right through to 'Motorizer,'
However, it does include a fair bit of tech-speak and jargon, which only producers understand, like the names and numbers of the vast array of microphones they use. But this can just be lightly scanned over, or indeed digested, as required, and one can enjoy the rest of the story.
And out of it all, we gather that Lemmy can a little difficult to work with at times, but he has to keep these production guys in check; after all, Motorhead has and always will be his baby, and he's not gonna let anyone mess with his vision too much.
Yes, indeed, an excellent book, and there's a few glossy pages in the middle with some great photos.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book, and has been ideally published just in time to add to every Motorheadbangers Xmas stocking.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book over Christmas, and quite enjoyed it. It is a fairly quick, undemanding read,and you get a bit more than just Lemmy's take on things, as there are always two sides to every story. It's ok, but I'm not quite as enthusiastic as the other reviewers here. As someone else mentioned, the input from Lemmy appears to largely quotes from White Line Fever, and there is a lot of repetition. Most chapters feature a section on what microphones were used in the studio, which meant nothing to me. Certain pieces of information crop up repeatedly, examples of which are: it is tricky to get the sound right on Lemmy's bass because he likes the bass frequencies down and the midrange right up, Phil and Mickey write the music and Lemmy writes the lyrics, these days they just go into the studio without anything prepared, they play really loud etc. All important information, which gives an idea of how challenging this group must be to work with, but I did not come away thinking that I had learned anything new particularly.

Format: Hardcover
This is a decent insight into Motorhead if you haven't read Lemmy's autobiography White Line Fever.Being a fan for over 25 years I didn't learn anything new really besides Pete Gill thoughts on his departure from the band.Brian Robertsons thoughts on his recording experience would have been good to hear.Most of Lemmy's quotes come from his autobiography or other sources so it doesn't look like theres any input from the man himself.
If its a choice of this or the autobiography then buy the autobiography.
If your'e a budding record producer or sound engineer etc then the technical insight to the actual recording process should be of interest.
