Throughout his astonishing career, Ian Hunter has produced a matchless repertoire of exciting music combining homage, honesty and killer hooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get It While You Can 5 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ian Hunter himself admits he is an acquired taste and some of this album may not be to your liking. That said for any Ian Hunter fan this is a must buy. For both fans and non fans alike this is worth buying for three songs.

The title song is great - and features Clarence Clemons on sax. Death and Glory boys (simply awesome and featuring the late great Mick Ronson) and Somethin's Goin' On are two of one of Ian Hunter's best ever songs and never featured on any compilation. In addition the CD adds a bonus "Traitor" a kind of crossover between "Bastard" and Queen's "Flash"

If you want to complete your collection then buy this now while you can!

Ian Hunter Rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars All of the Mott's are Taken 7 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album has got class written all over. Recorded in 1983, two years after his previous album "Short Back and Sides", it smacks of an artist at the top of his powers, who has already been there, done that, got the T-shirt, and was allowing the rest to try and catch up. That is not to say that every effort was not put into this collection, in fact, all the tracks were written by Ian Hunter with the exception of the two written with long time mates Mark Clarke and Hilly Michaels. In similar vein to Hunter’s more thoughtful work like "All American Alien Boy", Ian made lyrical assaults on several controversial topics including US television, government nuclear policy, and the recent Falklands war.

Although Hunter's usual partner in crime, Mick Ronson, was at the time off, involved in other projects. (However, he did contribute to one track, ‘Death and Glory Boys’, some absolutely shattering lead guitar.) Hunter has always had the luxury that most of his best mates also happened to be some of the leading lights in Rock 'n' Roll. So the main band was made up of Mark Clarke (ex-Rainbow, Greenslade, Tempest, to name but a few) on bass; Hilly Michaels (ex- Little Feat) on drums; long time sideman Tommy (Maddog) Mandel on keyboards; and filling in Mick Ronson’s mighty plectrum work, Robbie Altar. When you add to this some astounding, saxophone work by the mighty Clarence Clemmons from the E Street Band, you are left with a very fine pedigree stamped on the recordings.

The album opens with the first of two versions of the title track, a fast and slow version were recorded to open and close the album. The faster one being used as a single by record label Columbia to promote the album in the States.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well I love it! 10 Mar 2014
By Hoopler
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was 14 when this came out, and about 6 months into my MTH/IH appreciation. Had bought Mott's Greatest Hits on a whim and fell in love. So this was the first "brand new" product i got my grubby mits on. And I love it to this day. It seems to get short shrift from IH fans who all prefer any / every album to this, but it has a special place in my affections (and is a country mile better than most of YUI Orta). Just saying,

1.0 out of 5 stars Can one ever escape the past. 13 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on someone else's recommendation - and this was a mistake. The singer had been a part of my past, though I was not as devoted a fan as my friend, who fellowed each word and phrase with practiced verve. The style of music and its delivery should have been left in the period that made it. The last forty years have been difficult enough for most of us, though Mr Hunter seems to have ignored the passage of time for a determination to keep his views alive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not The Very Best of Work From a Great Talent 4 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being a late comer to the telent that is Ian Hunter, and a completist, I have been trying to get all of his studio albums.
This CD has not had good reviews, and I agree.
This is most probably the worst album he has made along with 'Short Back N' Sides'. Sounds like he tried to enter the 80's scene, but failed.
There are a couple of half decent tracks, but to be honest, I couldn't tell you the titles, and its a tiresome and pretty boring CD to play. Consigned to be played sometime when I might think; 'it can't have been that bad'.
I love Ian Hunter, but he lost his way with this CD and the above mentioned 'Short Back N' Sides'.
His early and later stuff is fantastic, and I'm looking forward to seeing him live next week.
