I didn't even know this album was coming out,it just caught my eye purely by chance, and when I saw the tracklisting I just had to buy it.
This albums could have been made specifically for me, as most of these tracks have been real favourites for me over the years.
I have always quite liked Def Leppard, having most of their albums, but have never been one to rush out and buy one of them straight away without hearing anything off it, which I did with this one!
my absolute favourite track on here is Mott the Hoople's "The Golden Age Of Rock and Roll", closely followed by Badfinger's "No Matter What", tracks you don't hear a great deal of...in fact don't hear half enough MOtt the Hoople stuff these days!!
This is one of the better covers albums I have heard, normally I think bands that attempt them don't seem to put enough energy into them, resulting in bland immitations of the originals (anyone heard ozzy's latest album of covers? ...I rest my case)...but Def Leppard seem to have put a bit of energy and seemingly enthusiasm into these covers.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one...not quite sure about the cover of David Essex's "Rock On"...never been on of my favourite Essex songs.
Great CD to play loud in the car!!!!!!!
