Having chalked up 11 U.K. Top 20 singles in just over two years there was no doubting that in the early part of the 70's there were very few more successful British groups than Mud. Mud even enjoyed success around the world especially in Germany where they enjoyed Top 10 chart success as well.
However, nearly all of their hits had been written by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman (also responsible for the likes of Suzi Quatro, Smokie and Sweet) and though Mud had written many of the B-sides, by mid '75 they felt confident enough in their own ability to 'go it alone' and so dispensed with the service of Chinn and Chapman.
Mud are still touring around the world and are well received wherever they play. The package is a typical 7T's production with extensive sleevenotes and rare photos, so a collectors dream!
The album, originally released in 1976, marked the return to the band of Robert Calvert who would be a major influence on the creative direction of the band lyrically and as vocalist. Including such classic tracks as ‘Steppenwolf' and ‘Reefer Madness,' this reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes (a first for any CD issue of this album) and features previously unreleased mixes of 'Back on the Streets' and 'The Dream of Isis' along with the 1976 single ‘Kerb Crawler' and ‘Honky Dorky' as bonus tracks.
