After leaving Mott The Hoople at the end of 1974 Ian Hunter hit the ground running with his excellent eponymous debut, represented here by no fewer than six tracks. He followed that in 1976 with All American Alien Boy which was altogether much lighter and all the better for it. 1977 saw Ian stumble with the frantic Overnight Angels, producer Roy Thomas Baker giving it a gloss that it didn't in all fairness need. Ian returned to CBS in 1983 but seemed to have lost focus with the patchy All Of The Good Ones Are Taken, represented by just four tracks.
This is actually a good compilation. You get the single version of All-American Alien Boy, the non-LP single England Rocks and the non-LP B-side Traitor, together with several tracks that don't normally feature on compilations. Sleeve notes are by Mott/Hunter biographer Campbell Devine and are excellent and informative as always.
OK, so it's vinyl only and all tracks are readily available on CD but for vinyl completists this release is highly recommended.
