Greatest Hits: Ian Dury & The Blockheads (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
Ian Dury, like Ray Davies and Paul Weller was a very English talent.
The colourful, metropolis inhabiting characters like Billericay Dickie or Plaistow Patricia he sung about and the ever so cockney music hall accent he chose to sing in were a big part of that. But most of all it was the detailed, poetic way he catalogued English life and the melting pot of musical styles used to do so, from punk to funk to jazz and rock 'n' roll, which left the listener in no doubt that Dury's work could only come from one place: The very heart of England.
