Right, what you have here is the original Iron Fist album on disc one in its entirety. Yes, everyone has their own opinion about it, even the band, and they agree it wasn't / isn't one of their best for the reasons well documented in their now almost 33 year history.
CD2, however, just to keep things filed chronologically, has the 'Iron Fist' single B-side as it's opening track. Then, again, as with each of these 'Expanded Box Set' releases from Sanctuary, we have tracks recorded within the same era as the album itself, with the soundtrack to the 'Live In Toronto' video.
14 tracks recorded Live at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens in May 1982, and the show prior to Fast Eddie Clarke leaving the band, so a very historic recording within the world of the Motorhead fan. Not only that, 'Live In Toronto' has only ever been released on VHS tape, if you have a DVD of it then it will be a pirate copy, and no doubt of naff quality, too. So, rather than wear out your already well-worn VHS tape, you can slip this little blighter into the CD player tray and be Live In Toronto'ed all over the place without kicking either the Mrs or the Parents' out of the lounge - perfection, eh!

Following the No.1 chart success of the 'No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith' live album (1981), the Eddie Clarke produced 'Iron Fist' arrived in 1982 to a mixed reception. As Lemmy said "how do you follow a successful live album?" The single 'Iron Fist' reached No.29 in the charts in April 1982. The B side 'Remember Me I'm Gone' is also included on CD2 of this release.

Although this album might be called 'patchy', there are still a number of strong tracks which make it worthwhile; tracks such as 'Grind Ya Down', 'Don't Need Religion', 'America', & 'Loser' (nice guitar solo!) are stand-outs, and there are other decent songs such as 'Go To Hell' & 'Heart Of Stone.' The Alternative version of the latter 'Lemmy Goes To The Pub' is not included in this package, nor are the 'Loser' & 'Religion' instrumental takes, or the different mixes of 'Speedfreak' & 'I'm The Doctor'.

What is included, on the second disc, is 'Live In Toronto May 1982', which was once only available as a VHS video. The sound is that of a decent 'bootleg', but it is still very enjoyable. Live recordings of the 'classic line-up' from this era are to be cherished. The varied set-list makes it interesting, with favourites (of mine) such as 'Shoot You In The Back', 'The Hammer', 'Capricorn', plus 4 strong tracks from the 'Iron Fist' album.

My least favourite songs on 'Iron Fist' are 'I'm The Doctor', 'Sex & Outrage', and 'Bang To Rights', which sound a bit 'run of the mill' and 'formulaic'.

Sadly, this was the last 'Motorhead' studio release to feature Eddie Clarke on guitar, after an argument whilst recording a (dreadful) cover version of Tammy Wynette's 'Stand By Your Man' with the late Wendy O'Williams from the 'Plasmetics' group.

Iron Fist is what I'd call a "fan's album". It doesn't contain enough immediate hooks to be of interest to the new or casual Motorhead listener, and will probably be considered by the recent Motorhead convert to be somewhat lacking when compared top the more well known albums of this era such as Overkill, Bomber or Ace of Spades.

But that doesn't mean it's bad. I believe it's fair to say that Iron Fist does hold a number of songs which wouldn't sound out of place on the aforementioned albums. The title track itself is a pure Motorhead classic, equal to the best of anything the band had released up to this point. I'm The Doctor wouldn't have sounded out of place on Overkill, being a more lighthearted cousin of Damage Case. Go To Hell, Shut It Down or Speedfreak would have sat perfectly comfortably upon Bomber. Heart of Stone, Sex and Outrage and Speedfreak (again) would have slotted perfectly well into Ace of Spades. Fifty percent of this album is solid quality Motorhead.

The problem lies with the other fifty percent, which is noticeably lower in standard than Motorhead's average lower standard of the time. Loser, America, Don't Let 'Em Grind You Down and I Don't Need No Religion suffer from a mixture of flaws, ranging from clearly rushed lyrics or vocal melodies to bad production choices. I Don't Need Religion almost sounds like a demo take because of the clunky manner in which the lyrics fit the music. There really is an overall feel with this grouping of tracks that a little more work should have been undertaken before release.

But once you been a Motorhead fan for a while and have heartily digested Overkill and Bomber etc. you'll be ready to re-appreciate and re-evaluate Iron Fist. And I believe when that day comes you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Following this one, the "classic" line-up split. After Ace of Spades and No Sleep til Hammersmith, this was a real disappointment. The songs are not very strong, with Iron Fist being the only one that remains in the Motorhead live set. But the real problem with it is the production. Things did not work out with producer Vic Maile, so Fast Eddie took on the role here, and ended up with a really weak, tinny sound. Quite a few Motorhead albums suffered from really poor sound, the first album and Orgasmatron being other examples, but this one has it combined with weak songs.

I tend to cluster Motorhead albums into three categories, and this one is firmly in the bottom category.
