A must have album.
on 29 November 2007
In many ways the quintessential British New Wave album,New Boots And Panties gets yet another re release.So the question is do you need this as well as the brilliant 2 cd reissue of a couple of years ago?If you have never owned this album on cd this is probably the best time to invest,but if you own a previous version, i'm not fully convinced.
The Sight And Sound dvd is fantastic,[But clocking in at under 30 minutes],and is a perfect representation of Ian Dury and the Blockheads at their peak[and they were a tight,disciplined live unit].However with only seven songs i feel a little short changed[surely some other footage could have been found to make this better value],and as much as i love this album and band,it is hard to recommend buying this if you own the album on cd already.
A five star review is given for the amazing music on both discs,which is timeless,but approach this reissue with some caution,as you may already own a perfectly adequate version.
