MOTT THE HOOPLE were considered by many to be the greatest live rock band England had ever produced. Founder members of MTH cut their teeth playing live with DOC THOMAS GROUP- MICK RALPHS, OVEREND WATTS and latterly DALE GRIFFIN all came together in Doc Thomas Group with one STAN TIPPENS on lead vocals (replaced by IAN HUNTER in MTH. Stan then became MTH Road manager). Much sought after this album was released in 1966 initially only in Italy. A bonus album recorded in 1990 from another of Watts/Griffin bands THE SILENCE is also included. Ralphs went on from MTH to form BAD COMPANY - enough said.
