Approved by the Motors is the second studio album by The Motors, originally released in May 1978. The album only spent 1 week in the UK Albums Charts reaching number 60. Four singles came from the album, "Airport", "Forget About You", "Today" and "Sensation".
The Motors had just completed a 5-week tour of the USA when they started recording the album on 1 February 1978. The album was produced by Peter Ker and the two main songwriters in the group, Nick Garvey and Andy McMaster. It was mostly recorded at Pathway Studios, London and engineered by Andy Miller at IBC Studios and Pathway Studios, Basing Street Studios, Olympic Studios. This album used some material that had been written by McMaster and Garvey before the band had formed the year before.

Love this album. Always have. I think they were onto something with their blend of soul/bubblegum/punk on songs like "Forget About You" and "Soul Redeemer." Most people prefer the first album, but the songs here appeal to me more. I will say "Do You Mind" is totally strange.

Glad I bought the vinyl in mint condition at the Princeton Record Exchange back in the days when no one wanted vinyl. They practically gave me the record! Anyway, great to see it in digital form with extra tracks. I have a 12-inch red vinyl single of theirs and I have to go check what's on it -- maybe some of these songs.
