Mott The Hoople - Hammersmith Apollo 10/2/2009

Thanks to Gobolino, we have a great sounding audience recording of Mott the Hoople's reunion concert. This is the second of four concerts to be played at the Hammersmith Apollo, London. It's been 35 years since the band has played together on stage. So this is a pretty big event for fans. Mott the Hoople sounds real strong, for being out of the circus for so long. There are some minor miss steps here and there, but that's to be expected. It's Rock and Roll, that's the way it should be. Gobolino did a wonderful job recording the show. There is a bit of distance in the sound, but in a good way. Turn it up loud, and you can feel the row, Gobolino was seated in. A big thank you for sharing this with those of us, who could not be there. Also, if you dig this concert make sure you go out and get the first night. The band has a soundboard recording of the October 1st, with a full cd of photos and video. It totals 3 cds and is available for purchase here. Again, Thank You Gobolino.

Enjoy the show.
