Product Description

Ooh La La An Island Harvest is a 2CD collection that focuses on this most productive and satisfying period of Ronnie’s career. The songs showcase exactly why Lane is so rightly revered by his admirers like Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, Pete Townshend, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Noel. The collection unearths some previously unreleased alternate takes of classic Ronnie compositions such as ‘Ooh La La’, ‘The Poacher’ and ‘Anniversary’. Also included is the BBC concert Ronnie performed in 1974 which features several Faces classics as well as a rip roaring version of ‘How Come’ and a cover of Gallagher and Lyle’s ‘I Believe In You’ who incidentally perform alongside Ronnie at this concert.

As every Small Faces and Faces fan knows – Ronnie Lane’s primo and sought-after solo career on GM and Island Records in the mid to late Seventies has had a ludicrously convoluted history on CD. It’s involved obscure re-issue labels, followed by quick deletion and extortion setting in on the price front almost immediately. And most of these discs have had OK to occasionally better sound quality. Well – at last – all of that ends with Universal’s big label 2CD reissue "Ooh La La: An Island Harvest". It's not perfect for sure – but damn close. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Ronnie, how we miss you 14 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd held off buying this at first, thinking that I had most of the tracks on other CDs, and that there were a few essential cuts not on here. A foolish mistake. This is an absolute 'must buy' for all Ronnie's fans, or anybody who likes real homegrown music from the 1970's. The remastering has really buffed up these songs, and this is how they should've been heard in the first place. Tracks which I'd thought were fairly mediocre by Ronnie's standards, shine like jewels here, and really come alive for the first time. It's a lovely old box of treasures, full of love, warmth and humanity, and Ronnie's charm and character really comes through in the remastered vocals, so much more than on previous releases. It's music to take to the shed, with all your old fishing rods, magazines and memories; for there are better days contained in these songs, wisdom, experience, and lessons learned along the way. Ronnie was wise, way beyond his years; and I wonder if he knew how good a song Debris was ? It's perhaps the best song about fathers and sons ever written; beautifully understated, with vivid imagery of a time and place, and so much of life's awkwardness left unsaid, between the lines. The version here captures it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a brave, lovely gentle soul 8 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I knew Ronnie Lane and he knew me. What a wonderful, warm, gentle spirit he was. And his music reflected this. Ronnie Lane left the bigtime arenas for the Faces and their 4/4 rock & roll to be the ONLY musician to ever convince this Kentucky boy there was such a thing as true English country & western. Many Brits have tried but with the possible exception of Billy Bragg's last album this is the only true artistically successful English country & western I have ever heard in my life.

With several unreleased cuts, different takes and a fine BBC live session if you are a Ronnie Lane completist, and I am, you need this in your home, and if you need an introduction to the Great Small Face then look no further. He will be missed as long as there is a fiddle or mandolin left to play and the list of strong songs herein is simply too long to list here. Now how many albums can you say THAT about, eh?

As Ian McLagan always sez, "goodnight, Ronnie!" and God bless you from my north London pad.

This music is truly great and the two discs are crammed with songs (about two hours and a half).
The two records Ronnie Lane released for the Island label are presented almost in their entirety, with the exception of a few of the original tracks replaced by very good alternates. And there's the bonus of a whole BBC session from the era. So this is all very fine.

The ok-but-not-great news is that the sound is ok but by no means outstanding, nothing remotely comparable to other Island reissue from the same era (this might be partially due to the original recordings; Lane' Mobile Studio was surely professional but not comparable to, say, Sound Techniques studio run by top drawer engineer John Wood)

The two different, original Island labels used for the discs are a nice touch, but oddly they scrambled the chronological order, so most of the tracks from the later "One For The Road" are on the first disc (with the label to "Slim Chance"), and viceversa.
The booklet is even more confusing, with the artwork to "One For The Road" presented before "Slim Chance".
There's no info whatsoever about the recordings, no line-ups, which could have been particularly interesting for the unissued tracks and the Live at the BBC.
We're simply not told who is playing on these tracks.
The liner notes are a bit amateurish and skimpy - the kind that make you think you could do better just by looking it up on the internet - and certainly could have used an editor's eye (the last sentence is: "And that is why he so missed" (sic) - OH COME ON!)
So, great music - mediocre presentation.

PS anyone interested in some serious insight on the subject might rather check out Pat Gilbert's piece on the April issue of Mojo, very well written and with new interviews with bandmates and then-wife Kate. That's the way it's done.
