If you like early 70's Glam rock, then I recommend this CD. Unless you are a true fan of the band, this CD is more akin to "complete" than "essential" because it really does contain all of their best material. It provides great exposure to the genre of music that didn't last too long but created some great memories.
I have been a huge fan of this band every since my cousin played the album "All The Young Dudes" for me back in the early 70's. I also still follow the musical career of Ian Hunter. With that being said,I don't have anything negative to say about this collection. It covers a lot of ground and their 2 best albums are well represented. Those albums being "Mott" and "The Hoople".

Diary of a Rock 'n' Roll Star. Ian Hunter. Within a few months, Hunter and Ronson left the band to begin working as a duo. The new incarnation of the group released Drive On and Shouting and Pointing to little attention before adding John Fiddler as their lead singer and changing their name to British Lions.
They split up two years later. Though the allegiance between Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson was short-lived, it was well-received and the two would continue to sporadically work together until Ronson 's death in Hunter pursued a moderately successful solo career, highlighted by his eponymous album and 's You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic.
