Ian Hunter: Welcome To The Club

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 5 April 1980

THIS IS a double live album and as such is prone to all the problems that such vinyl is heir. Problem (1): the cover is an ugly monstrosity; the centrefold filled with colour photos of the participants banged down any old how while the front is an inexplicable, misconceived null-and-void job which conveys absolutely nothing except that Ian Hunter is somehow involved. Double live albums are almost always execrably packaged, and this one is certainly no exception.

Total word count of piece: 818
