Hit Me! The Best Of (CD)

In Stock
Expected delivery to Australia 4 - 5 business days (excludes preorders).

A brand new collection covering the entire career of the unique and incomparable Ian Dury. This collection features some of Dury’s earliest work with Kilburn and The High Roads, through a golden period of solo hits and classic recordings with the infamous Blockheads to his final studio album released in 2002, two years after his untimely passing in 2000.

The Crown Prince of Essex… the punk poet laureate… Ian Dury’s mastery of the English language and powerful performance made him an artist like no other. His wit, wisdom and showmanship are ever present here on classic tracks such as Reasons To Be Cheerful, Pt 3, Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, Sex & Drugs and Rock & Roll …all now unofficial British anthems!

The collection also feature brand new liner notes by comedian, writer and Ian’s friend, Phill Jupitus, alongside rare and unseen photographs.
