Recorded in just two days, Motorhead's often overlooked debut album from 1977 is a dirty and raucous collision of Punk attitude and Biker rock.

The song selection is a mixture of covers and Motorhead originals. Of the former; Vibrator and City Kids were penned by Motorhead's first guitarist, ex-Pink Fairy Larry Wallis (who departed the band after playing on an earlier version of this album which at the time was shelved by UA Records). These two tracks have quite a Punky edge. Musically they would have sat perfectly well on the debut albums of The Damned, Clash or Jam - although only The Damned would have gotten away with unchanged lyrics for Vibrator and retained any measure of credibility! Wallis also penned On Parole, a chugging R&B precursor to the later turbocharged likes of Going To Brazil and Bye Bye Bitch. Lemmy managed to cover himself on this album, revamping three tracks from his old Space Rock band Hawkind with Motorhead, Lost Johnny and The Watcher. Train Kept A' Rolling and I'm Your Witchdoctor are covers of 1960's R&B standards, coated with some extra Motorhead grime. Beer Drinkers and Hellraisers is a ZZ Top cover. Yep, the same ZZ Top who, with the aid of constant MTV video rotation in the 1980's, bludgeoned the world into submission with the synthesied radio-friendly Pop-Rock of Sharp Dressed Man and Legs. This track however is taken from the band's earlier days when they were still true to their Bluesier roots.

As for Motorhead originals you get Iron Horse/Born To Lose (Which went on to be a live favourite for many years.

Motorhead did it first. Motorhead did it best - this album proves it. I've ALWAYS owned "Motorhead" in one form or another (I still have my original LP on White Vinyl). "Lost Johnny" and "Iron Horse" are as good as it gets! If you're a 40 something, buy it now and remember how good it was the first time you heard it. If you're young, buy it now and further your education!

This CD is the very first Motorhead album, digitally remastered. It has all eight original tracks plus the the b-side "City Kids" from the single "Motorhead", and four extra tracks from the session which were released in 1980 as the "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers" EP. The packaging is normal jewel case, one disc. Liner notes are by Ted Carroll, who was the big cheese at Chiswick records, the label the original release was on. The history is well observed and written, detailing the evolution of the band leading up to the release of the album. The music? Blistering. This is what started all the hard loud, what's happened to my stereo? rock. This is music that appealed at the time to anybody with an open mind. If you liked Sabbath, The Ramones, Zeppelin, The Pistols. You loved Motorhead. It's the same now. Korn, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Slayer? Forget it. This sets the standard. The opening bass rumble of "Motorhead", The lyric "Sunrise/Wrong side of another day". You are in seventh heaven. The sound on remastering? No digital sheen here. Every dirty chord is revealed, giving the listener more of the experience. On vinyl I was completely swept up. On this remaster I'm in the music.And I don't wanna leave!

First of all, don't let the misleading picture of the back of this product's case fool you, THIS IS A CD, NOT VINYL / RECORD! The layout on the back of the CD (Side One/Two) implies, or at least makes it look like it's a record, but I assure you, it is not!
The delivery was extremely fast, and was here way before the estimated date, one of the quickest I've ever recieved, fairplay!
This is Motorhead's first album proper, as 'On Parole' is generally considered their 'lost' album, doesn't feature the original 'classic' trio of Lemmy, 'Fast' Eddie Clarke and 'Philthy Animal' Taylor and...isn't really good by comparison.
All the hallmarks of the fabled Motorhead sound and blueprint are here : Lemmy's Rickenbacker bass sound, Eddie Clarke's Hendrix-esque, blues based solos, riffs and intense guitar tone and to a lesser degree, Taylor's frantic drums, although the overall pace is generally mid tempo at best on this album, or at least nowhere near as break neck quick as the following albums. Lemmy's voice isn't quite up to scratch on this album, and improves massively by the time the band released their sophomore effort 'Overkill,' but is instantly recognisable and blends well with the rest of the band and the music.
Despite not being held in anywhere near as high regard as what followed (the holy trinity of 'Overkill,' 'Bomber' and 'Ace of Spades') this album does feature some Motorhead classics and songs that were often peformed in their early years.
'Motorhead' introduces the world the band, the name and the sound and is very much the root of the band's tree. A unique bass tone and intro, a quick and intense guitar riff and tone and pummelling drums, rock and roll on steroids, also famous for being the only song (at least at the time) to feature the word 'parallelogram!
