5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, and overlooked., 23 Mar. 2014
I've been a Blockhead fan for quite a while and have enjoyed all their recordings. This is special. We all know that the Blockheads are especially talented musicians but this is a great record. Undercover, Confused and Tommy Gunn are wonderful, thought provoking and beautiful constructions that, along with the other material on this album, deserve wider recognition. It's a crazy world that allows such wonderful music to fade into the background. Gilad's touches are simply wonderful. Please check out the Blockhead website for live dates and other news about this great band.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wonder?, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Wilko. I just wonder whose idea it was to release this? I already own Back In The Night on CD but wanted to hear the live section contained on side four (recorded at Tunbridge Wells, 2005); it's not disappointing by the way. I know the live DVD has just been released but any Wilko live experience is one to treasure.
If you have the all the Wilko live recordings then you already have what is captured here. If you are a someone who has to have the complete works of Wilko then this is essential. Great man, great band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wilko should have been preserved much more on DVD.
This is a great treasure for fans and those who want, in the future, to understand how a legend performed and entertained. Norman and Dylan are, as always, the consummate professionals. From start to finish this is a treat, When I'm Gone and Don't Let Your Daddy Know are fantastic. I appreciate Alison Moyet's contribution but would have preferred to have had just the trio throughout. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 9 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Quantum Frolics (MP3 Download)
This is a beautiful, sensuous and humorous recording. A hidden gem that, probably,
will never be fully appreciated. Fortunately we have the privilege of hearing John with the Blockheads, World Party and others. But this is still too little. Look forward to the next release.

Must see for anyone who appreciated Ian Dury and (still can appreciate) the Blockheads. Great performances from all concerned, although there is a distinct lack of Chaz Jankel from the DVD despite claims on the cover. By the way The Blockheads are still touring, check out their website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 5 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Staring Down The Barrel (Audio CD)
What a fantastic album.
First class musicianship coupled with Derek's sometimes witty, sometimes poignant but always meaningful lyrics. As one reviewer quite recently stated 'Ian owed his genius to no one but he owed his fame to the Blockheads' listen to this and you will understand why. Many Blockhead albums in the past have come with warnings that the content may shock people; the only shock about this one is the price. As a piece of music this is exceptional let's hope another is in the pipeline.
