Ian Hunter: You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic (Chrysalis)

Simon Frith, Melody Maker, 7 April 1979

I GROANED when I saw what this record was called. Modish madness and the wrong joke anyway – shouldn't it be "You're Never Alone If You're A Schizophrenic"? A title thought up in the packaging department. Part of the colour design, nothing to do with the music.
