RONNIE LANE ‘How Come?’ Alchemy STRTR164 (2003)

Another in the low priced 'introduction to' series. This time it is co-founder of the Small Faces and later member of the Faces, Ronnie Lane. He also has his won band in the mid-70’s Slim Chance but was cruelly struck down by MS and died in 1997.

A good selection of songs across Ronnie Lane’s career but sadly the inlay sleeve has no song writing credits, line-ups or where the songs originate. Great version of the Faces ‘Ooh La La’ and a jazzed up cover of ‘Brother Can You Sapre A Dime?’ Many of the tunes have a distinct folk tinge with mandolin a key instrument ahead of guitar, none more so than ‘Poacher’ and ‘How Come’, two cracking tunes. There is even a touch of 60’s balladry on ‘Only You’, a distinct touch of Gene Pitney style vocals on there!

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
