Background: Released in 1981, No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith was the first live album by Motorhead.
While the album didn’t chart in the U.S., it reached #1 on the UK charts.
Released in 1981, the live album No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith recaps the highlights from the legendary run of albums Motörhead released during the prior few years, namely Overkill, Bomber, and Ace of Spades. ,,, But what makes it all the more noteworthy — and more than simply a run-of-the-mill, gap-filling live album — is the performance: in a word, it’s breakneck. The trio of Lemmy (bass and vocals), “Fast” Eddie Clarke (guitar), and “Philthy Animal” Taylor (drums) absolutely rips loose through this 11-song set, upping the intensity and speed of the already intense and speedy studio recordings. Yes, believe it or not, these performances are even more crazed than their studio-recorded counterparts. … Moreover, it’s an important release because it captures Motörhead live during the peak of the classic lineup’s rise to fame. Motörhead could do no wrong at this point in time, as they were laying the foundation for the coming thrash movement, in a way, and their winning streak continues here on No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith, one of the best live metal albums of all time.
