|Ian Hunter chronology|
All of the Good Ones Are Taken is the sixth solo album of Ian Hunter. The album contains a mix of several styles. Longtime collaborator Mick Ronson was mostly absent (he only played guitar on one track), because he was seriously considering quitting the music business.
The heaviest[clarification needed] tracks are "Something's Goin' On" (a comment on the Cold War) and "Death'n'Glory Boys" (featuring Ronson).
In 2007, the album was reissued with a single bonus track.
