1995 Comeback Album Reissued on Limited Edition Vinyl LP!

Ian Hunter´s wonderful Dirty Laundry album from 1995 is issued for the first time as a limited edition LP via Big Dipper. The record features Hunter with Casino Steel, Darrell Bath, Honest John Plain and ex-Sex Pistol Glen Matlock (on bass) and original Mott The Hoople sideman Blue Weaver plays keyboards on five tracks. The album was produced by Bjørn Nessjø and was well received, thanks in part to excellent word-of-mouth and a hit single in "My Revolution."

After Hunter and Steel agreed that Nessjø was the man for the job, they arranged a few rehearsals with the band before herding them to Abbey Road Studios in July of ´94 with engineer Rune Nordal. The Norwegian producer had a reputation as one who could use his arranging and orchestration skills to create songs from slivers of musical ideas and meet deadlines. The result was a real cracker.

The special LP edition is pressed on heavyweight vinyl and comes with a gatefold sleeve with notes from Michael Monroe, Darrell Bath and Casino Steel. The outer sleeve has a brand new design.

Dirty Laundry is actually a glorious accident, as Ian Hunter originally intended to record only a few songs at Abbey Road, but was swept up in the energy from a knock-out band, resulting in one of his best works. As Hunter's output lessens, every nugget dispensed from this sultan of snarl has merit, but all 12 of these tracks are quality songs, most written on-the-spot in the studio. Hunter seems relaxed and happy to jam with an all-star band of talented unknowns... His music is now essential listening -- collector's items teetering on the brink of obscurity; but there will always be a place for a genuine treasure like Ian Hunter.
