Mother Trucker –Tonight


Mother Trucker –Tonight/ Propeller Love –Ember EMA 0287 (1974 US)
Mother Trucker –Tonight/ Propeller Love –Vogue VB 401 (1975 Bel)

Both sides of this Mother Trucker single are fine examples of tuff Glam Crunch-a-rama in Punchin’ Judy mode with extra horn(s). Signed by the US branch of Ember by John Madara, Mother Trucker was a UK outfit supposedly with a background in road haulage (yeah right...). There also seems to be some line-up confusion between the US and Belgium sleeves –spot the similarities...not obviously apparent. Whatever the line-up Mother Trucker can handle my logistics any day –niark niark...

"we sang a New york City folk song about the dirt and the grime and the crime and the slime"
I just love that lyric and the way it's sung, pop magic. You keep finding this stuff, it's great.

Do you know where can I find the full album?

Hi
I had a quick look around and couldn't find one. Probably ebay is the most likely place

The album has been available on iTunes and Amazon music etc for a while now. And the record is on a couple of mail order sites. It's great fun! Did you ever find out more Robin? Were any of the girls in the various conflicting pictures (UK/US/Japan/Belgium etc) even musicians? Looks like it might be a pure exploitation exercise to me
