Product Description

Adorned with a painting by Peter Blake, ‘Apples’ is the sole album recorded by Ian Dury for WEA Records, originally released in 1989. It accompanied his stage show of the same name, performed at London’s Royal Court Theatre that year.

 

The songs were co-written with Mickey Gallagher of the Blockheads, although ’Apples’ and ‘England’s Glory’ actually date back to Dury’s Kilburn and The High Roads days. The album was recorded before the show opened and includes twelve of the twenty songs that featured in the show.

 

The players include Paul Weller’s drummer Steve White, Blockhead Davey Payne on sax and Wreckless Eric and famed musical actress Frances Ruffelle (mother of singer Eliza Doolittle) on vocals.

 

The booket is illustrated with ephemera and a note by Alan Robinson.

4.0 out of 5 stars This musical is a perfect backdrop for Dury 21 Jan. 2013
By George Griggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is comprised of 12 songs from a musical Dury created. APPLES is filled with clever, literate, "story-songs" that resonate with great humor and detail.
The whole of the record, I find, very engaging. APPLES may not have the strong hooks of the Blockheads, yet Dury's wry observations are just as subtle and humorous as ever.
