Mott The Hoople Legend Ian Hunter Releases 30-Disc Anthology Box Set Stranded In Reality


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The career of the British rock great and Mott the Hoople icon Ian Hunter is celebrated with this 30-disc Anthology box set, Stranded in Reality, containing a swathe of rare and previously unreleased recordings and film. Compiled and curated by Ian and recognised Hunter-Mott biographer Campbell Devine, the project is the ultimate celebration of the artist's hugely influential and sparkling solo work. Covering the years 1975 to 2015, Stranded in Reality comprises 17 original albums on 19 CDs, 9 "new" discs of intriguing rare and unreleased tracks plus 2DVDs.

All of Ian's classic solo albums are contained in the box set including expanded Anniversary Editions of Ian Hunter, All-American Alien Boy, You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic and Welcome to the Club, plus special unique bonus track discs of Short Back n' Sides, All of The Good Ones Are Taken, The Artful Dodger, Strings Attached, Shrunken Heads and When I'm President.

The new albums are titled Tilting the Mirror (Rarities 2CD), If You Wait Long Enough for Anything, You Can Get it on Sale (Live 1979-81 2CD), Bag of Tricks (Live Volumes 1, 2 and 3), Acoustic Shadows and Experiments. The box presents many unheard and "lost" songs from Ian's archive including 'San Diego Freeway', 'Nobody's Perfect' and 'Salvation' as well as rarely performed live versions of 'Wild East', 'While You Were Looking At Me', 'The Outsider' and a 2008 acoustic concert.

A visual 2 disc set, It Never Happened, features promo, live and archive material, and most of the footage has not been issued commercially on DVD until now. The project includes a complete 1979 Hunter Ronson concert from London's Hammersmith Odeon and a TV film from the same tour, live in Toronto. Collectively, the albums and DVD's offer music fans a rock 'n' roll jackpot of over 400 tracks!

Lavishly presented in an LP-size deluxe box with custom Escher-style cover, the collection also contains an 88-page hardback book with comprehensive essay, rare memorabilia and Ian Hunter "Track by Track" for every song, a stunning facsimile Shades newspaper featuring classic historic press features, an Alien Boy lithograph personally signed by Ian and original and brand new album artwork in replica card sleeves.
