the ballad of mott


After just catching up with the sad news of Dave Dee\’s demise at age 65 over on How Marvellous – and listening to Mott The Hoople\’s superb 45, \”Saturday\’s Gigs\”, there too – I felt compelled to dig out something by Ian Hunter in a similarly less raucous vein. It\’s a Sunday thing.

The open(ing) cut is written by Verden Allen and Hunter, a reprise of sorts to their 1972 Bowie penned smash, and the second is a group composition with Allen again making his contribution…

Ian Hunter: vocals, piano, guitar; Mick Ralphs: vocals, guitar; Pete \”Overend\” Watts; bass guitar, vocals; Dave \”Buffin\” Griffin: drums, vocals.
