BRITISH LIONS were formed from the ashes of MOTT who in turn were formed from the ashes of MOTT THE HOOPLE. The band burst onto the music scene in 1977 and toured extensively the UK and USA over the next 2 years.

Fronted by charismatic lead singer JOHN FIDDLER who had changed his image and style from his laid back MEDICINE HEAD persona to that "suiting a new wave rock band" the bands management decided USA was right for the band and they supported the likes of BLUE OYSTER CULT and UFO before headlining themselves.

This live recording never before released from Old Waldorf, San Francisco captures the bands talent and energy. Shortly after this gig they hot footed back to the UK to record what became their last album Trouble With Women" which at the time had under whelmed the "suits"and by the end of 1978 British Lions were no more.

Also included as bonus tracks original demos of three of the bands well known tracks.
