The Further Adventures Of... has garnered some significant praise from those involved in the original band. “I’m blown away by these recordings", says Mott the Hoople singer Ian Hunter. "These songs really suit Joe’s voice also. It’s a whole different side to him and the project gets my approval!”
Joe Elliott says, “These songs make up a huge portion of who I am and I feel incredibly privileged to have been able to record them and hopefully give them a new lease of life, which, quite frankly, is long overdue.”
