IAN HUNTER mp3 guide

Most Ian Hunter albums and individual tracks are available for digital download thesedays. Some digital albums have been available on CD for years but have been issued with different titles and artwork. Other titles are only made available in digital format, or offer bonus tracks not available on the CD edition.

This page deals with all those 'special edition' digital albums. Digital versions identical to the CD editions are not covered. Let me know if you can add other digital only titles!

Originally released as bonus CD with 1994 re-issue of "Short Back N' Sides"

When Ian's 1981 album "Short Back N' Sides" was re-issued on CD in 1994, it included a bonus disc called "Long Odds and Outtakes" with alternate mixes and outtakes from "Short Back N' Sides" and "You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic" from 1979. The bonus disc was also released in USA in 1996 (Griffin Records). The 2CD edition is now out of print, but the bonus disc was made available for download in 2006!


Highslide JS TRACK LISTING: Just Another Night / Wild East / Cleveland Rocks / Ships / When The Daylight Comes / Life After Death / Standin' In My Light / Bastard / The Outsider / Don't Let Go / Ships / When The Daylight Comes / Just Another Night / Whole Lotta Shakin' / F.B.I. / Once Bitten / Life After Death / Sons And Daughters / Laugh At Me / Just Another Night / One Of The Boys / Letter To Brittania / Bastard / Memphis / Cleveland Rocks / Dudes / When The Daylight Comes / Angeline / Ships / Just Another Night

The 30th anniversary edition of Ian's "Schizophrenic" album is available as a digital download with two bonus tracks which were omitted from the 2CD-set: "Ships" (early version) and "Just Another Night" (electric). Apparently this was due to time restrictions on the CD format.

(UPDATE 2012) the 4CD Ian Hunter box-set "From the Knees of My Heart - The Chrysalis Years 1979-1981" includes the two bonus tracks mentioned above.
