Mad Shadows was the second album by Mott the Hoople. It was recorded in 1970 and released in the UK on Island Records in September 1970 catalogue number ILPS 9119 and in the US by Atlantic Records cat. SD 8272. It was subsequently re-released by Angel Air in 2003 SJPCD158. As with their debut album, it was produced by Guy Stevens. The original pressing reached No. 48 in the UK Albums Chart in October 1970. Songs in album Mott the Hoople - Mad Shadows 1970. Mott the Hoople - Thunderbuck Ram. Mott the Hoople - No Wheels To Ride. Mott the Hoople - You Are One Of Us. Однако как и первый альбом, Mad Shadows продавался из рук вон плохо, а Иэн Хантер называл его самым отвратительным альбомом Mott the Hoople,а мне так не кажется ,наверно, как и многим русским фанатам этой замечательной английской группы Personnel: Ian Hunter - vocals, piano Mick Ralphs - vocals, guitar Pete Overend Watts - bass Verden Allen - organ Dale Buffin Griffin - drums Guy Stevens - producer. Album 1970 7 Songs. Mad Shadows isn't as festive and fun nor as witty as their critically acclaimed 1969 eponymous debut, but dig below the surface and you'll find an album of darker introspection with songs that get inside your head and work their magic after a few listens - especially the pensive No Wheels To Ride. Guy Stevens' production has aged well just listen to the rich, saturated guitar tones on the opening cut Thunderstruck Ram which was later covered by ACDC. The emotive You Are One of Us hints at the direction. If Mott the Hoople's debut album cheerfully careened all over the place, their second, Mad Shadows, has one direction - downward into dense murk. Cutting out most of their humor and ratcheting up the volume, the group turns out seven songs that alternate between thundering rockers and sludgy introspection. Mad Shadows. Mott The Hoople.

Посмотреть сведения об участниках альбома, рецензии, композиции и приобрести альбом 2009 CD от Mott, Mad Shadows на Shadows has become my favorite Mott the Hoople album. It is often referred to as their darkest record, and after listening to Ian Hunter's haunting When My Mind's Gone, you will understand why. The album is bookended by heavy rockers Thunderbuck Ram and the bonus track How Long Psychedelic jams Threads of Iron and country rock the Mick Ralphs-penned and sung It Would Be A Pleasure, plus more hard rock Walking With a Mountain await the listener between those two tracks.
