Mott The Hoople – Live

I’ve had this album since new, it still has the plastic wrap on the cover.

Mott The Hoople Live is a 1974 album by the band Mott the Hoople recorded during their debut US in New York City, with Queen as the opening act.

This was to be their last performance as the band split up shortly after. Great live sound including “All The Young Dudes”.
