It really started to look, at this point, like Ian couldn't figure out how to handle success. He somehow managed to followup his two most impressive solo albums Ian Hunter and You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic with his two most disjoint and frustrating albums.
I remember grabbing this on release, so looking forward to Ian's return to the studio not counting the rather tepid studio tracks on Welcome To The Club. And wow, what a letdown. I haven't listened to this album in well over 10 years. Fun to revisit it and see if it is as bad as I remember. Not a fan of the background vocals echoing Ian, but the best production so far.
First song on the album that isn't at least a partial disappointment. It's not awful, but again Album) a better song in here than what was put on record, and it's a waste of a good vocal performance by Ian. The irony of the "Some noises should never be heard" line appears to have been lost on the producer.
A rare case of the production actually working well with the song. But at least in this case it's poor production of a poor song, so no real loss. Someone please shoot the background singers.
So I guess the final verdict is "Yes, it is almost as bad as I remember. I'll post my impressions of the Long Odds And Out-takes disc in a followup. Last edited: Mar 29, Glad I picked it up at release. Better than any of the songs that actually were included on Short Back n' Sides. Let down a bit by the "guitar solo" if you can call it that. Surprised Ian never revisited this one. Love the organ. Basically a jam that hasn't quite gelled into an actual song yet.
But a worthwhile listen, though the synth effects grate during the last minute or so. I sometimes think he could write these in his sleep. On the other hand, if this same track had been included on SBnS it would have been drenched in weird effects and overproduction and become worthless. Would have fit right in on SBnSLP, and that's not a compliment.
I miss the opening scream, and Ian's voice is definitely lower in the mix, so much so that it's barely audible at times. Interestingly, in this version when Ian calls out "solo" there's an actual recognizable guitar solo, but that's the only improvement in this version and it's not enough to make up for the buried vocals. And I couldn't shake it for the entire listen of the song. So I really don't have an opinion of this song as I just can't listen to it without cracking up.
I Album) it's pleasant enough in a generic sort of way. Again, Ian is better served by this sparse arrangement than the busier one on SBnS. Ultimately, despite it being uneven by its very nature, this is actually a better album than SBnS.
It has more good songs and fewer abysmally bad ones. And the alternate versions here are mostly better than the SBnS versions due to sparser Theater Of The Absurd - Ian Hunter - Short Back N Sides (Vinyl. And just because I already had it open in a browser tab, a tease of what's to come: Ah, the '80s! CybrKhatru likes this. I stumbled across a used copy of the Long Odds version of SBnS years ago in a record store that I didn't frequent that often and it generally didn't have a good selection of imports or oddball stuff, LP.
I got the LP when it came out but I didn't even know this version existed. Here is a rough guide for how long it should take for you to receive your order from this date.

Ian Hunter had been revitalized by punk rock, as Short Back and Sides shows. Featuring the Clash's Mick Jones on guitar, the music is a tougher and spikier take on Hunter's rock & roll, and his songwriting is at a near-peak.
