Motorhead's debut album,although it wasn't released until the band found success with "Overkill",is a fascinating document of the early development of what would go on to become the best band on the planet.
The really interesting thing is the fact that Eddie Clark had yet to join the band with Larry Wallis handling guitar duties and supplying around half of the songs,while Lemmy contributes a number of songs which he originally wrote for Hawkwind including "Motorhead" and a beefed up version of "The Watcher" which is considerably faster and Livelier than the dirgelike original.
This album, with Wallis's somewhat tinny guitar sound,does sound pretty mild compared to the punk tinged fury that we've come to expect from the band,but the fact remains that there are some very strong songs on here,such as "Iron Horse/Born To Lose" and of course "Motorhead" which when given the full on Live treatment on "No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith" Live up to their glorious potential.
