Wildlife is the third studio album by the British band Mott the Hoople. The album was originally released in 1971; in the UK by Island Records (catalogue number ILPS 9144) and in the US by Atlantic Records (cat. no. SD 8284). It was subsequently re-released by Angel Air in 2003 SJPCD159. It reached No. 44 in the UK Albums Chart in April 1971.

Since they had little success and seemed to be going off the tracks, Mott the Hoople was encouraged to produce their third album with anyone that wasn't Guy Stevens. Eventually, they chose themselves, creating a record that is bright and punchy, standing in direct contrast to Mad Shadow's enveloping fog. They wound up with Wildlife, a record that still seems a little transitional, yet is considerably more confident, unified, and enjoyable.

Mott the Hoople is the debut studio album by the band of the same name. It was produced by Guy Stevens and released in 1969 by Island Records in the UK (cat. ILPS 9108), and in 1970 by Atlantic Records in the US (cat. SD 8258). It was subsequently re-released by Angel Air in 2003 (SJPCD157).

The cover of 1970’s Wildlife-Mott the Hoople’s third Atlantic Records album in two years-depicts a kind of glam version of The Band, all woodsy and autumnal in woolen coats, scarves, hats, and shags. And the music itself features organs, pianos, and acoustic and pedal steel guitars.
