Album Notes
Ian McLagan's second solo album 'Bump In The Night' - 1981, was the Bump Band's first recording. Mac and Johnny Lee Schell ('Little Troublemaker' ), found the perfect drummer in Ricky Fataar, who had moved to Los Angeles from his native South Africa as a member of The Beach Boys. Mac, Johnny and Ricky then auditioned bass players until Ray Ohara came along and the Bump Band were complete. The sessions were recorded at famed Shangri La Studios on Zuma Beach, Malibu, California which had been The Band's studio and where Martin Scorsese filmed interviews for 'The Last Waltz'.
Ronnie Wood co-wrote and played bass and lead guitar on 'Litte Girl', Bobby Keys played tenor sax on ‘Not Running Away’, and Renee Geyer sang on ‘So Lucky’ and consequently began recording her album titled, 'So Lucky' at Shangri-La with the Bump Band.
During the sessions for ‘Bump In The Night’ Bonnie Raitt came to check out the studio, liked what she heard and made plans to record her next album, 'Green Light' with the band too. She liked the band so much they subsequently toured with her for four years as 'Bonnie Raitt & the Bump Band'
As the three sessions were winding down in 1981, Mac was asked to tour with the Rolling Stones again, and spent a whole night finishing off vocals and keyboards on all three albums.
This is Mac's most rocking album, re-mastered from the original 1/4 inch master tapes and with artwork never used in the vinyl edition. He plays many of these songs live with his current Bump Band from Texas, 'Scrappy' Jud Newcomb - guitar/vocals, Mark Andes - bass/vocals , & Don Harvey - drums.
Check out Renee Geyer's 'So Lucky', Bonnie's 'Green Light' and 'Bump In The Night', the Daddy of them all!

Convengamos que la razón por la que introduzco este album en los reviews es para orientarlos un poco de que se trata la música que dio vida al glam en los ochentas.
Como parte de las bandas que influenciaron a todos los combos que ya conocemos hay algunas como New York Dolls que se les puede llamar propiamente glam, pero también hay otras que empezaron sutilmente esa imagen andrógina como los Rolling y Small Faces (Rod Stewart, Ron Wood, Ian McLagan, etc).
Justamente Ian se convirtió a fines de los 70’s y principios de los 80’s en el tecladista mas famoso de UK.
Acá no estamos buscando comparaciones musicales, bases potentes ni estridentes guitarras, sino lo que dio paso a la imagen glam así como lo que influencio a esta.
Si ustedes agarran un cd de covers de Def Leppard verán que casi todas las canciones pertenecen al estilo que Ian McLagan propone en estos dos albumes reeditados en uno solo.
Si agarramos bandas como The London Quireboys, The Georgia Sattelites o Dogs D’Amour veremos que están directamente influenciadas por Ian y The Faces.
Este cd esta conformado por dos discos uno datado del 79’ “Troublemaker” y el otro del 81’ “Bump in the Night” conformando 20 tracks en total de puro rock and roll.
Si se fijan en quienes tocan verán a un par de Stones a Ringo Starr, Zigaboo quien descubrió a Robert Palmer (Power Station), Jim Keltner (Steve Jones)
En fin, simplemente me parece interesante mostrarles un poco las raíces de lo que escuchamos, y para ello les propongo que le den una oída a este doble algum, que trae particularidades que con un poco de atención se reirán de cómo la música se recicla permanentemente.

A Rockin' and Rollin' PARTY!
This cd is in the great tradition of GOOD TIME FUN! Ian and the boys specialize in this stuff. From the Small Faces to the Faces (my fav band) to playing with everyone who matters, this guy does it all. He also has the perfect voice for good time rockin'. Feeling low? Put on BUMP IN THE NIGHT! And get your dancing shoes out!
