When Hunter and Ronson left Mott The Hoople this could have spelt disaster for the other membersbut fortunately their resolve and determination over-came all obstacles resolving to carry on with a revised line up. Enlisting new guitarist Ray Major and unknown vocalist Nigel Benjamin the band recon-vened, still signed to CBS, under the new handle of Mott. It was this line-up (also featuring Pete ‘Overend’ Watts, Dale ‘Buffin’ Griffin and Morgan Fisher) that recorded ‘Drive On’ one of the year’s most surprising and exciting al-bums . The album is also a hot-bed of hard rocking, allowing the extraordi-nary vocals of Nigel Benjamin to take centre stage. It’s this full-on direction that lent the record a sense of urgency that still impresses to this day.
