5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Disco Pops!, 9 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Lord Upminster (Audio CD)
This album came out of the disintegration of the Blockheads. Much of the blame for that was due to Dury himself who, it has been said, burned his bridges whist he was still standing on them. He did not handle his rise to stardom very well but against the odds he managed, with the help of Chaz Jankel and Sly & Robbie, to pull together a rather wonderful album. Sure it doesn't contain the same level of brilliant wordplay as we had become used to on his Blockheads albums but amongst my circle this album was greeted with enthusiasm at the time. It has long been a source of sorrow that this album has spent so much time unavailable in the intervening years. So here it is with bonus track and what a welcome return it is too. I notice that some, so called, music magazines have given this a rather lukewarm reception, this just proves how dreadful they are. This is not just Spasticus (Autisticus) with a few other tunes. Okay so that song does still have the power to knock you off you feet a bit; should I be offended or outraged by the lyrics? Well no, it is an attempt seize power back for people living with disability; in other words to empower them and for my money that is worth celebrating. A greta album by a great man, with a little help from his friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to hear the whole thing again..., 19 May 2014

Had the vinyl but not had a record player for many years. Big Dury fan so really good to introduce my son to more of him. Sly and Robby are a worthy replacement for the rest of the Blockheads but I'm glad of their work. Dury at his lyrical best.

Excellent to finally have Ian Dury's fine collaberation with Sly and Robbie on CD... worth every single penny... and probably a few more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ian Dury Meets Sly & Robbie!, 18 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Lord Upminster (Audio CD)
Ian Dury always had the spirit of Funk within him so it was only a matter of time before he had the Riddim Twins lay down a rock solid foundation for him to work his magic over. This album is top of the pops and your sound system needs it!! After you treat yourself to this little gem go and buy the many other Sly & Robbie gems...be it their 70s-80s-90s-2000s Dub albums or their brilliant albums with such greats as Grace Jones, Black Uhuru, Sinead O'Connor, Howie B and the many others who were lucky enough to have the world's No.1 rhythm section work with them.
