A wonderful and engrossing book of Ian Dury's lyrics & more.
on 14 July 2015
This magnificent, illustrated book was lovingly compiled by Ian Dury's daughter, Jemima.
Along with a moving memoir there are manuscripts, photographs, albums, singles and personal items mostly from Ian Dury's collection.
Dury was a supreme wordsmith and almost all of his well-crafted, witty and risqué lyrics from 1970-1999 are included here.
Accompanying the book is a fascinating CD featuring revealing interviews with Dury concerning the songs on 'New Boots and Panties', his disability, early life and Art college days.
All fans of Ian Dury & The Blockheads shouldn't be without Jemima Dury's wonderful and engrossing book.
