The first basslines of Lemmy for the title-album-group homonymous track leave no doubt for what will come next. How you describe this sound back in 1976? Heavy? Hard? Fast? Punk? Just plain rock'n roll to me. The comets whirling around the Hawkwind's starship subside and give way to a clearer rock approach with Lemmy in charge of the spaceship. Every track is a hard rock classic, leaded by Iron Horse / Born to Lose, a track that carries with it everything that Lemmy and Motorhead were and will be in the following years of recognition. The agonizing hard-to-come-out voice of Lemmy is calling you to board on his rusty spaceship. Hurry up!

Fantastic lost debut album of one of metal's famous bands!!!! The album shows how MH retained influence fr. the prog/psychedelia of Hawkwind, and incorporated blues & punk to add to the blossoming speed/thrash metal development. The track "Leaving Here" is particularly interesting since it was also covered by the Who, another possible influence on Lemmy & co.

I agree with jack knife, the early stuff is better! More punkish and experimental than later Motorhead. Clean sounding bluesy guitar rock, you can hear how complex some of the arrangements are on these early songs...well thought out art. Money and video's have since killed off this kind of creative expression.....

Motorhead - 'On Parole' (EMI) Dec 27 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 1979, as this reissue sure took LONG enough to finally get put out on CD. That's okay. We can't expect EVERY cool lp to be available on compact disc, pronto. Can we? Worthy reissue of the album's original nine in-your-ugly-ass-face tunes, plus four (4) bonus tracks added, of alternative edits of the title cut "On Parole", "City Kids" (also like Pink Fairies version of this song), the band's namesake "Motorhead" and "Leaving Here". Vintage British '70's metal that you simply don't want to be without. Recommended.

Put down your Sex Pistols, pick up your Vibrator March 12 2005
By The New Slang - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I picked up this album handful of spare change, an as investments go, it has more than paid out. Each time I listen to this album, I want to cruise down the highway on a big old fat Harley D, pull into a roadhouse and order a cold beer. Then glass the barkeeper and challenge anyone who dare's rush to his aid.

This is a not designer stubble, faded jean, made-to-order MTV schlock. This is in yer face, lock-up-yer-daughters make Elvis look as harmful as a Teddy Bear, no-holds bar, "On Parole" rock and roll.

Being the "lost" Motorhead album, you may expect this to sound incomplete. Far from it! Lemmy's trademark bass & growl are in development, the songs are more blues-rock based, but tracks like "Iron Horse/Born to Lose" sums up the gonzo-metal appeal that Motorhead are famous for.

There is a true sense of freedom to this album. This music stands for everything the Idol machine is against, music that anyone can play. Rock and roll, on parole, let loose, allowed to play with passion and intensity. The very point of Motorhead. No rules except those we choose to follow.

Born to lose, live to win.

This is a remaster of Motorhead- On Parole.It was recorded in 1975 but was not originally released until 1979. The album was completely re-recorded in 1976 as Motorheads self titled debut. The songs on that release were completley rearranged and sound absolutely nothing like they do on this album.
What I find interesting in this disc, is the fact that, even though it wasn't really quite Motorhead yet, you can still understand the urge to make the music LOUD. The idea was there, it just hadn't really developed yet. In fact, alot of this old school Motorhead recording almost sounds closer to Hawkwind stuff, which was that british acid/prog/revolving door band that Lemmy was in prior.
Many of the tracks have alot of weird fills in them... stuff that one may assume they would never hear on a Motorhead album... such as, high pitch backing vocals, or lazer beam sound effects. VIBRATOR is this cheeky snotty brit punk thing happening. Almost glitterish, with a different lead vocal, but you know the band was having a blast recording it anyway.. It makes me chuckle a little. IRON HORSE starts off with a pretty extensive rasta section. Live At Hammersmith this is not.
Still though, I enjoy this record. Even though the songs are alot cleaner than the Head you may know, for 1975 this is some pretty loud stuff. I would still kill to see more bands play music like this these days. It definately is not as frenetic and blood pumping as albums to follow, but the buzz had to start somewhere. I say, make sure you have Motorhead/Motorhead first, because they really got it right the second time around. However, sometimes I really like these recordings too. It all rocks man. It's Motorhead!

The Pink Motorhead Fairies heavy greasy rock LP. Oct. 2 2006
By D. P. Fisher - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This to me is the only Motorhead LP that matters. Of course I'm a big Pink Fairies nut so that might be it. You get Larry Wallis from the great Pink Fairies on guitar. It sounds like the Pink Faiies if Lemmy had joined up in '75. Anyway a great greasy slab of drunken Hell's Angel biker rock. Rock on.

One of Motorhead's true stand-outs Oct. 12 2001
By D. K. Malone - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Out of Motorhead's absolutely colossal body of work, this, their first album, is the most unique. Why? Because... it sounds like The Who. I guess back in 1976 they hadn't quite found that hard 'n' heavy and above all LOUD sound that later became their trademark. No, most of the material on On Parole really does sound a lot like the typical British pop/rock of 1965, before the days of heavily overdriven guitars. Light distortion (I could swear the guitarist was playing a Rickenbacher. Maybe he is... I mean, Lemmy always has) and a very simple, dry production mix. It really, really does sound a lot like The Who. The cover of Leaving Here only seals the deal. Not quite as euphoria inducing as their later albums, but still I would think this belongs in any serious Motorhead collection.
