The Very Best of Ian Hunter

1990 Compilation by Ian Hunter

Cover 

Roll Away the Stone; Once Bitten Twice Shy; England Rocks; Sweet Jane; Saturday Gigs; Rest In Peace; You Nearly Did Me In; Seeing Double; Overnight Angels; I Get So Excited; All The Way From Memphis; All The Young Dudes; The Golden Age of Rock n' Roll; Who Do You Love; Foxy Foxy; One of the Boys; Rose; All of the Good Ones Are Taken (Part 1)

A shoddy collection that combines Ian Hunter solo material with Mott The Hoople tracks. There is nothing unusual here, and bad editing results in several tracks fading early and some tracks with the first few noteas cut off. Short liner notes in German. For completists only.

The Collection

1991 Compilation by Ian Hunter

cover 

Cleveland Rocks; Just Another Night; Ships; Bastard; Standin' In My Light; Central Park 'n' West; I Need Your Love; Gun Control; Rain; We Gotta Get Out Of Here; Man O' War; Silver Needles; Once Bitten Twice Shy (live); All The Way From Memphis (live); Irene Wilde (live); All The Young Dudes (live)

A compilation of previously-issued tracks from the Chrysalis catalog with liner notes by John Tobler. The CD issue in 1991 was a likely attempt capitalize on publicity surrounding YUI Orta. The disc was advertised as a 'limited edition gold disc' but that was probably a marketing ploy since I have never seen one that wasn't.
