great to get a hold of these two great lost treasures of good time rock n roll on cd,i still have the old records with thousands of scratches on them.mud rock 1 for me was the best of the two as it is a little heavier, listen to the hippy hippy shake its really mean with the underated rob davies on guitar,it could have been any of those 70s rock guitar heroes like mick ronson or paul kossof playing on that one, you wouldnt know the difference.in the mood just gets you to boogie and blue moon awesome.mud rock 2 has a lot of good moments one night and tabacco road and living doll,les gray is was and always will be remembered as a great frontman but also off stage a pure gem of a guy,ray stiles now plays with hollies and dave mount (drums)has his own buisness,rob davies writes for kylie etc,and sadly les is gone. hope they release its better than working on cd as you will find out how good mud were at writing theyre owm songs.god bless em.brian ovens

By and large, most people tend to think first and foremost of the "Chinn/Chapman" penned singles rather than the albums when considering the bands output through their most commercially successful years on RAK records. This is a great injustice to the band as "Mud Rock" and "Mud Rock 2" are far more representative of all that was great about the band than any of their "singles" compilations. Thats not to say thses albums don't include any of the bands 15 chart hits ("Rocket" features on "Mud Rock" together with a medley of "Dynamite", "The Cat Crept In" and "Tigerfeet" and "Mud Rock2" features "The Secrets that you Keep", "Oh Boy" and "One Night") but the real strength of these albums is in the quality and strength of the other "featured" tracks - all of which are cover versions of rock and pop hits of the 50s and 60s and all performed in the inimitable and instantly recognisable Mud style. The first album is the slightly more "raw" sonding of the two. The whole album is consistently strong but, for me, the highlights would have to include a great version of "Running Bear", their fantastic cover of "The End of the World" (which surely would have been another number 1 for the band if it had been released as a single in the 70s), their acapella version of "Blue Moon", their riotous run through of Glen Miller's (!!!) "In the Mood" and, closing track, a cracking version of Chuck Berry's "Bye Bye Johnny".... "Mud Rock2" seems to "benefit" from a slightly more refined production and bigger recording budget(?) - although the first album was always slightly more of a favorite of mine than "Mud Rock2" ever was... nevertheless, the album is full of cracking cover versions - "I Love How You Love Me", Paul Anka's "Diana" and rocking versions of "Tobacco Road", "Talahassie Lassie" being amongst the highlights.Read more ›

Thank goodness for cd's. Most of my original vinyls, although lovingly stored in plastic sleeves, suffer from overplaying. These two albums represent everything that Mud were about....FUN! They show Les's fantastic vocals off to a treat, I think my favourite track would have to be 'I love how you love me'.
If you grew up in the seventies buy this it's the law, if you didn't still buy it and see how music should be!

As a boy of 10 I could not wait for Muds first album, Mud Rock. Mud had created a very distinctive sound of their own cultivated from their first five singles. Although the first 2 were only minor hits they were nevertheless brilliant 70s glam rock compositions. Alas, after this, perhaps influenced by the rock'n'roll revival in the UK at the time they took on an pseudo Elvis sound that eventually became their trademark. Therefore, by the time of this release, their first 2 singles had been omitted & the other 3, including the glam classic Tiger Feet were only left on as a medley. They had rejected the Chinn/Chapman compositions that had made them successful in favour of rocknroll covers. Nevertheless the first album retains a party-type feel throughtout with some excellent covers, in particular, Running Bear, the reggae-influenced Bye Bye Johnny & Blue Moon. By the time the 2nd album arrived the Elvis sound had taken over completely, even on their singles & although it was a more polished sound than the first, their original distinctive sound had long disappeared. This album does have some good moments, Oh Boy & Tallahassie Lassie stand out, but to have an idea of the real Mud you are better off purchasing albums like Mud As Bs & Rarities.

I was a big fan in my early teens (along with Slade and Sweet) and Mud Rock was almost glued to my turntable for several weeks. I even brought it into school to show off, I was so proud of it! In retrospect the cheesy party atmosphere and intro/outro by "Geoffrey" detract from it a bit , and including their big hits to date (Dyna-mite, Tiger Feet and Cat Crept in) as a medley left me feeling short changed even though I had them on 45 and had played them to death. Today older and wiser I am more appreciative of Rob Davis' guitaring. They split up with songwriters Nicky Chinn & Mike Chapman before the second album and there is a marked drop off in quality - only 1 original, the Secrets That You Keep, makes the cut, the rest being old rock'n'roll standards, not to mention the even more cheesy party noises and the "fake Geoffrey". Talk about milking a formula. They had a hit with their acapella arrangement of Buddy Holly's Oh Boy but nothing else really stands out. Like Sweet before them, the group slid into a terminal popularity decline. Still, this brings back some fond memories (remember that dance with the elbows?) and for that it gets 3 stars from me.
