This is an expanded anniversary edition of Ian Hunter's solo debut. Along with Mick Ralphs, Ian Hunter was one of the two creative forces behind 70's glam rockers Mott the Hoople but after Ralphs left the band to form Bad Company, Hunter carried on for a few more albums before striking out on his own in 1975. This album finds Ian Hunter at the peak of his powers and he is ably assisted by the lead guitar and production touches of ex-Bowie sidekick Mick Ronson. So, despite being a debut, both Hunter and Ronson had seen and done it all by the time this record came out.

"Once Bitten, Twice Shy" was Hunter's first and only top 20 hit and remains one of his best known songs and live staples and is then followed by "Who Do You Love" which continues a bright start. The excellent "Lounge Lizard" then completes an opening trio which could easily have found there way onto any Mott the Hoople album. However, Hunter is keen to show he can move up to another level of song writing sophistication and the stunning "Boy" showcases this intent. This lengthy cut takes the form of a piece of cautionary advice being doled out by the older Hunter to a younger (and possibly more successful?) rock'n'roll casualty. Is it Bowie he is talking about? Or Lennon's Lost Weekend? The song is filled with oblique references to make you wonder but in any case it is a song from the top drawer. "3,000 Miles from Here" beautifully depicts the emotional emptiness of life on the road and groupie adulation picked out in acoustic guitar. "The Truth, The Whole Truth, Nuthin' But The Truth" gives centre stage to some superb solos by Ronson and is as confidently rendered as anything being produced at that time by Led Zeppelin or the Who.

once bitten twice shy is one of my favourite singles from the 70s which is why i bought the album in vinal all those years ago ! boy is one of the best tracks on this album starting slow and quiet and finishing big and its a long track "fantastic" . the influence of david bowie is quite clear, through the help of mick ronson (bowie's guitarist and vocalist) If you like good old rock this album is a must.

My all time favourite album - amazing lyrics and (to my mind) Ian Hunters best album.
Ian Hunter is a iconic Rock n Roller and he has set the bench mark with this album that I think will take some beating !
Mick Ronsons guitar work is sublime throughout adding a real depth and sheer musical quality 'in spades'.
I have been listening to this album since its first release and I still listen to it weekly after all these years - an ageless classic that has somehow evaded the recognition it truly deserves.

I've always adored this album, played it to death upon its release on vinyl in 1974, but just received the CD and it's back on heavy rotation after not paying it for at least a decade. Pure Joy,,,,

If like most of us you skip tracks when listening to ANY album by ANY artist, then treat yourself to Ian Hunter. I play it all the way through without skipping a track. Awesome album.
