5.0 out of 5 stars Mott the Dog thinks this is great. January 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Ian Hunter This excellent album from 1975 comes across like a live set. Ian Hunter joins together with ex David Bowie axe man Mick Ronson to create a blistering Rock `n' Roll album, brushing aside the mourning of the recently demised Mott the Hoople, who Hunter had fronted for the past five years. The album commences with the classic "Once Bitten Twice Shy" with the Hunter trademark "Allo". This was a worldwide hit single for Ian, then later covered by Great White and taken to the top of the U.S. charts, this is followed in rapid succession by two funky rockers about life on the road. Closing what in the days of vinyl was the last trackside one is "Boy", probably the most emotional song Ian had written to that point, warning the Rock generation of the perils of the high life, probably dedicated to David Bowie, Ariel Bender or you. "3000 Miles From Here" is a wonderfully tongue in cheek ode to groupies. From here on its power/Rock `n' Roll with Geoff Applby /Bass, Peter Arnesen/Keyboards and Dennis Elliot later of Foreigner/Drums laying down a rock steady beat for Hunter & Ronson to throw down their wares. There's a brief respite while Hunter lays his soul bare with "Shades Off" until Ronson comes crashing back into to take you hurtling along the tracks like a runaway express train to the end of the aptly titled "I Get So Excited". This album contains some of the best songs ever written by Ian Hunter and the guitar playing of the sadly departed Mick Ronson is terrific through out. Mott the Dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest January 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ian Hunter by Ian Hunter and featuring Mick Ronson is one of the finest albums to come out of the seventies. Not only are the songs tight, spirited, and well played, but they seem to have stood the test of time. Listening to them now they sound as good as they did back in 1975 when I first bought the lp and wore it out. Though Hunter may not be a 70's rock and roll poetic genius like Bob Dylan or Bruce Springsteen or even Paul Simon, he can still write a genuinely captivating song, as can be heard with "Once Bitten, Twice Shy," "Lounge Lizard," or "Boy."

I absolutely love this album, and I would put it in my list of top ten albums from the seventies, which is a difficult task. I think what makes it so great is the combination of Ian Hunter's songwriting and vocals mixed with Mick Ronson's guitar and production work. Ronson is easily one of the most over looked talents from the seventies, and his work with Ian Hunter is simply devine rock and roll. By all means buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Ian's best albums remastered with bonus tracks January 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Nervous exhaustion can take its toll. Ian Hunter was burned out touring and recording with Mott the Hopple. After a length rest Mick Ronson pushed Ian to record his first solo album. Rock 'n' Roll ain't been the same since. "Ian Hunter" started off with "Colwater High" (a song written as the next single for Mott the Hopple)and "One Fine Day" (both included on the Ian Hunter Anthology and here as well). Both tracks were ditched (and unfinished until 2000)in favor of new material Hunter had come up with.

"Once Bitten Twice Shy" became a huge hit for Great White over a decade later and charted in both the UK and US for Hunter as well. Ironically opening with "'ello" (the last Mott the Hopple single closed with "Goodbye") the deceptive simple percussion opens the song building with each piano trill and finally with Ronson's slashing guitar solo. "Longue Lizard" was originally recorded with Mott the Hopple (it's on the Mott the Hopple's Anthology). Written about Hunter's days as a single man looking for a woman it's a nasty self portrait of earlier days before he got married again. "Boy" written with Ronson is about David Bowie, Joe Cocker and Hunter himself. The Dylanesque "3,000 Miles from Here" with its simple acoustic guitar and vocals gives way to the rocking "The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth". The album closes out with the epic "It Ain't Easy When You Fall/Shades Off" and "I Get So Excited". In addition we get the single mix for "Once Bitten", "Who Do You Love" the original poem of "Shades Off" (again from the Hunter anthology) and the single version of "Boy".

There is also a CDR that amazon is also offering of the original album. I would opt for this deluxe edition instead due to the bonus tracks which make this essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent solo debut for Ian Hunter January 11, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The only things keeping this first Ian Hunter solo album from a 5 start rating is the poor production/cd sound quality and a couple of weak tunes in the middle of the disk. But, songs as good as "Once Bitten" and the final 4 songs make for a dynamic rock n roll listening experience. Here's a hint for aspiring metal/hard rock bands: you need only search through the Ian Hunter song catalog to find material good enough to make you sound like the next great rock band. An added benefit is a lot of rock fans won't even recognize the songs as remakes. It will always amaze me that so much great rock n roll has been put out by Hunter and the late great Mick Ronson, that is so under appreciated. This album is a great starting point to check out their prolific collaborations.

Ian Hunter joins together ex-Bowie axe master Mick Ronson to create a blistering rock and roll album and in doing so made the mourners of late Mott the Hoople forget what they were sobbing about.From the guitar searing "Once Bitten Twice Shy" (Later to be faithfully & successfully covered by Great White)to the touching lament to a groupie "3000 Miles From Here" Ian Hunter delivers his full range of pure rock n' roll and master songerwriting ability.
