It's useful to know what this CD is, and what it isn't. It's not really an 'official' release, but neither is it yet another of the millions of'live/rare' Motorhead compilations.
This is Motorhead's unreleased debut album, recorded for UA in 1975 with Larry Wallis [Pink Fairies] on guitar. The original drummer, Lucas Fox, left/was removed after the recording and when Phil Taylor then joined he rerecorded all the drum parts except Lost Johnny.
[For the history buffs, Eddie Clarke was then recruited as second guitarist but Larry Wallis left after one rehearsal, resulting in the familiar Kilmister/Clarke/Taylor lineup.]
UA didn't release it until 1979, on the back of Motorhead's 'Overkill/Bomber' popularity.
All the tracks but one [Fools] were rerecorded in better versions for Motorhead's self-titled official debut on Chiswick. If you like the raw, gruff, underproduced 'British MC5' sound of that album, give this a spin.
Inessential? Yes. Minor? Yes. Bad? No- and it's part of the story.
I'm not 100% sure about this but I think that three of the four 'alternate takes' [City Kids, Motorhead and Leaving Here] are Motorhead's very first studio efforts produced by Dave Edmunds, which exist only on acetate.
