Along with the film, brings the great Ian Dury back to life!!!

For those who have seen Mat Whitecross's tremendous film of Ian Dury's life, currently on general release in UK cinemas, this will be the perfect accompaniment, featuring all the songs in the film and more. For those who haven't, it will serve as an introduction to Ian Dury's genius, as the collection features all his greatest songs. A must have!!!

This is the kind MUSIC that never dies

"Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" is a such awesome song!!
