    Ian Hunter band released 1979,

    live albums , really top notch ones are quite rare, I rate this easily in the top ten, maybe even higher.

    music sounds on the cd very clear and you can tell the band are enjoying themselves.

    Instrumentals, good quality riffs, play acting with the crowd its all here

    There are some cracking songs on here starting on with FBI a class instrumental, then into the well know once bitten twice shy.

    Cleveland rocks is another song you have to listen to a true foottapper

    Irene Wild he has the crowd in his hand, have a listen

    B astard certainly get your attention and works very well live

    Pick up a used copy for a fiver, if you have not got it give it a go

    I have not reviewed every song because there is so much

    Very interested to hear your thoughts on this one guys

    Cheers Mike

    I have a 3 Ian Hunter albums but never seen that one before Mike...:think:

    I am not a huge fan of live albums generally, but you rate this one so highly I am intrigued.

    Nice review...:hab:

    Re: Ian Hunter Welcome to the Club

    One of my favorite live albums of all-time! This album is a must & the real treat here is how incredible Hunter & ex Spider from Mars guitarist, Mick Ronson work together (as they did through most of Hunter's solo career). This has a great variety of Mott the Hoople classics such as All the Way to Memphis, Walking With a Mountain, & a great version of All the Young Dudes which leads right into the almost emotional instrumental of "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue". His solo stuff is well represented with Once Bitten Twice Shy, Just Another Night, & all the songs you mentioned. We Gotta Get Out of Here was a minor hit with airplay in my area

    Re: Ian Hunter Welcome to the Club (1980)

    I know it's a bit OT, but I always liked Mott the Hoople, especially Brain Capers, All the Young Dudes and The Hoople. Mott, with Ray Major and Nigel Benjamin, were great to begin with, around the time of Drive On, but went downhill fast. Mick Ralphs went on to Bad Co, who were at least as good as MtH.

    certainly worth picking one up mate, a good listen, i know what you mean about live albums, but the ones that are good seem to be really good

    i had this on vinyl originally and recently picked one up on amazon on cd, still a good listen
