All The Young Dudes represented a major turning point for Mott The Hoople, following a string of respected but poor selling albums, none of which are generally available any more. Mott had already decided to call it a day when David Bowie tried to persuade them to give it one last try, and offered to write a song for them. "Suffragette city" was turned down, but "All The Young Dudes" was to be the band's saviour, and pave the way for a string of hit singles and successful albums.
"Dudes" stands apart from the later albums, carrying many of the hallmarks of their earlier material, spiced up with some quirky production from Bowie and some experimental effects. Aside from the title track, highlights include a spendid version of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane", the instantly catchy "Jerkin' Crocus", "One of the Boys" which typified the material that earned the band their 'fathers of punk' reputation, Mick Ralph's tasteful "Ready for Love" (which he tried again some years later with Bad Company - with much less success), rounded off by the delicate ballad 'Sea Divers', representing some of the despair which Ian Hunter felt at the time of the band's apparent demise.
That so much of the early Mott material is now unavailable is truly a tragedy. Anyone who enjoyed their later material should buy this album before it's too late, and get an idea of how much you have already missed.

After three albums on Island between 1970 and 1971 that saw constant touring, critical acclaim but little chart action ("Mad Shadows", "Wildlife" and "Brain Capers") – Mott The Hoople were about to throw in the towel when they finally hit paydirt with the David Bowie assisted "All The Young Dudes" Single and LP in the heady days of 1972 (the height of Glam Rock in the UK). With the mercurial Bowie a fan and his star exploding everywhere – the timing and the song was perfect. And that’s where this wicked 2006 Expanded CD Remaster comes swaggering in.

One of the first LP's I ever bought, and Mott the Hoople were my favourite band back in the early 1970's. There are times when I know they still are. If this wouldn't make the top 100 rock albums of all time, then it would certainly make the alternative hundred without any doubt. There are a couple of weak tracks, but the overall sound and feel of the album arguably makes this their finest recording. It opens with a wonderful cover of Lou Reed's Sweet Jane, with Hunter right on it and a lovely warm bass and drums from Overend and Buff. Mick Ralphs really shines on this album and his guitar playing on Sweet Jane is beautiful, with a lovely outro solo that's note perfect. Momma's Little Jewel comes off pretty well with its cheeky and infectious lyrics, and was a hint of Hunter's direction as a songwriter. I've never been a big fan of ATYD but Ian's vocal carries it. His attitude and sneer give real character to the lyrics and he throws in some wonderful banter from 'live adventures' towards the end. Jerking Crocus illustrates just how well the band mined that wonderful rock and roll sound of the Rolling Stones; in particular the Keith Richards / Mick Taylor years. I've never understood who or what a Jerking Crocus is, but always imagined the song to have something to do with the sort of thing Chuck Berry got himself locked up for ! The highlight of the album is One Of The Boys: six minutes of primal rock and roll, a simple but fantastic riff; with the huge bass sound from Overend Watts together with Verden Allen's distinctive Hammond organ, that gave them so much bottom end and which was perhaps the secret of their sound. Mick's reedy vocal on Ready For Love doesn't quite come off but his guitar white-out on After Lights still gives me chills to this day.Read more ›

Prior to Mott The Hoople being given the kiss of life by David Bowie, in his support and decision to offer Mott (by far) their most successful hit record in the Bowie-penned title song, this great band were on the verge of calling it quits, early in 1972. That they didn't is a true musical blessing, not least for yours truly, who was then able to witness them live - my first ever gig (in 1973), and supported at the legendary Chatham Central Hall(!) by (the much inferior) Queen. By the time of the gig Mott had, unfortunately, dispensed with the services of legendary guitarist (and songwriter) Mick Ralphs (who went on to play in - the also much inferior - Bad Company). In his place appeared Ariel Bender (I kid you not with the name!), a mindblowingly extravagant (and technically brilliant) guitarist, visually straight out of Sweet, but actually straight out of band Spooky Tooth (who incidentally also provided drummer Mike Kellie to later punk band The Only Ones).

For me, Mott The Hoople produced two masterpiece albums, this one, and the follow-up, Mott. I have a slight preference for All The Young Dudes, but both are essential in the record collection of anyone who appreciates the 'glam rock' (an unfairly, much derided and belittled term) greats that were David Bowie, T.Rex, Roxy Music, Lou Reed and their ilk. Whilst this album does contain one or two journeyman songs in Sucker and, arguably, Momma's Little Jewel, it is otherwise a collection of masterful songs. As well as the brilliant title song, Mott also produced a superb cover of Lou Reed's Velvets-era song, Sweet Jane, featuring Ralphs' semi-acoustic guitar opening and Ian Hunter's impassioned vocal.
