thanks for posting, OP. I'm listening to the song over headphones, something I've never done before and this track freaking rocks.

Cool! It DID happen! They did tour together!I saw them at the Uris. I was thirteen and owned Queen II but the real draw was Mott. It was a great show. I can't remember which night it was but it had to have been a weekend otherwise I would have had a lot of convincing to do in order to get my folks to let me take the train into Manhattan on a school night.
Did we not determine that Ralphs is not playing this posted track?I loved Mott the Hoople and especially Mick Ralph's guitar playing then and in Bad Company. In this tune, it sounds to me like a Les Paul Jr and is one of my favorite tones. When he pulls off that soaring harmonic in one of the solo fills, I still get chills til this day.
Cool production, really committing to panning instruments and vocals.It must be at least 40 years since I've listened to this classic track from Mott the Hoople. What a great song. I seem to remember watching a video of it on The Old Grey Whistle Test back in the day. They used to play videos (before the video era) of tracks set to old black and white cartoons.
Listening again now, I'd totally forgotten about the tasty guitar playing throughout. I'm guessing this was Mick Ralphs playing?
Bad Company fans should recognize his distinctive 'voice' -Let's get the facts straight.
Mick Ralphs played on "All The Way From Memphis."
Man, that's a tour de force in 'hair metal lead guitar'. Shameless over the top riffing - pretty great all the way through- but from 3:30 on it's just 2 great players cranking it out over a 2 chord vamp.Yup, great song. Remember the cover by Contraband? Michael Schenker and Tracii Guns.
