2010 is the 10th Anniversary of Ian Dury's passing and in what will be a big year for his music, a soundtrack for a generation of a certain age(!), the year begins with the release of this essential collection of his best known and biggest recordings.
This new collection features 20 recordings, including "What A Waste", "Reasons To Be Cheerful (Part 3)", "I Want To Be Straight", as well as the No. 1 "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" and the title track to the forthcoming film "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll"...the album also features extended versions of `Reasons To Be Cheerful (Part 3) and a hard to find `Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick'.
Ian Dury was a fascinating character and a unique Artist who gave the English language modern-day clichés in the
aptly named album title `Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll' and `Reasons To Be Cheerful'. His fans include Sir Paul McCartney, Madness and Robbie Williams.
Now the subject of the critically acclaimed biopic `Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll' starring Andy Serkis as Ian Dury, the film focuses on his personal relationships during his rise to fame, as well as how he dealt with and overcame his disability.
It is hard to believe that it is ten years since Ian Dury passed-away but this new collection serves as a timely reminder as to how great his songs were and how the recordings have stood the test of time.... 30 years on!

I bet it was "New Boots and Panties" then. I had that album when it came out ( I was 13 ),and had to play certain songs down low so my mum didn't hear the words.

Thanks OP this really IS a hot deal, have ordered two, heat added and "like" lol.

Superb price for one of the UK's greatest ever singer/songwriters music. Great initiation for the modern generation to learn about real music and real people. Thanks as ever.

Unbelievable price.......worth buying even if you have them all to save making up a greatest hits comp!

cracking comp!

Many thanks for this find. Just ordered one.

Never understood why people liked this band so much to be honest. Maybe it's just me.

the 12" version of rhythm stick has a slightly different ending fact fans

No "Plaistow Patricia"! I can remember belting that out in the 6th form commom room. Didn't take too long till it was confiscated.

Great price, ordered
