With Mott enjoying huge success with the single All The Young Dudes, and the UK tour to support the album, Island put out this compilation in an attempt to cash in. The cover is quite dreadful, but as an introduction to Island-era Mott the track selection was reasonable (for the time), and it does include the non-LP single Midnight Lady.
