Hunter, Ian – Dirty Laundry [IMPORT] – New LP
Ian Hunter´s wonderful Dirty Laundry album from 1995, will be 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-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.
