The Mott the Hoople Greatest Hits LP was the most played in my collection. But I haven't had a playable copy since 1987 and thought it was about time I got it on CD. I went for this extended double collection and the sleeve notes are very good filling in bits about the personalities I hadn't appreciated. But the music sounds a little dated and it has to be said that anything not written by Ian Hunter is of a poorer quality. The Greatest Hits will be a much better listen for anyone unfamiliar with their work. They had a consistently strong output while Hunter was on vocals.

Overall, yes, a very good value for money package as far as the casual buyer is concerned, as the post-Island big hits are here, and there are a lot of quality tracks for the money.

BUT, to compile a CBS years collection and omit 'Sea Diver' from the 'All the Young Dudes' album is simply crass. This was a highlight of the aforementioned lp, a positively anthemic number for the band live, and rates as an all time favourite with Mott fans to this day. Leaving this out of a 'Best of' compilation was a completely absurd decision and cannot be defended in any way; any number of tracks on the second cd could have been substituted for this.

If this isn't important to you, then it's a safe enough purchase. But for those of you in the know looking for a real 'best of', this will be very disappointing.

Long awaited, this compilation finally does justice to a revered band which were prominent in the 70s and 80s.

You get 35 tracks for your bucks, all the chart singles, curiosities and hidden gems.

A timely compliment to the recent BBC documentary, may still be accessible on BBCi Player.

If you are looking for an intro into Mott, go for it. There are always track you would like to see added to any 'best of's but this 'aint' bad

Some great tunes by a really under rated band, theres 8-10 quality songs. Best tracks are All the young dudes, All the way from memphis, Roll away the stone, Golden age of rock & roll.
