About this release

Originally issued in 2002, two years after Ian Dury’s death, this is the last studio album by Ian Dury and the Blockheads. It was put together from recordings made between 1991 and 2000, with new Blockheads performances added in 2001, using a tracklisting found amongst Dury’s papers.

Chaz Jankel, Dury’s principal collaborator, oversaw the project, which features two of the last lyrics that Dury wrote. As he was too ill to record them, the vocals are performed by Chaz and on “You’re The Why”, by Robbie Williams.

The booklet was designed by Ian’s widow Sophy and includes art by Peter Blake, Barney Bubbles, Humphrey Ocean and several others. This 2017 digipak edition has been expanded to include all the lyrics for the first time.
