Format:Audio CD
This album displays all of Mick Ronson's talents as a guitarist, arranger, interpreter, singer, and producer. Talents that were mined by many others such as Lou Reed, Dylan, Ian Hunter, Morrissey, and most famously David Bowie. Bowie's (and Reed's) breakthrough albums of the early seventies (up to and including Alladin Sane and Transformer) owe a huge debt to Ronson's skills in all departments. For a time in 1972/3, it seemed that all Ronson touched turned to gold, and when he left Bowie after PinUps, no-one quite filled the gap for DB.
Slaughter is a classic album that never quite moved out of Bowie's shadow at the time, but now stands on it's own as Ronson's finest solo recording. Uplifting, breathtaking, soaring guitar, great tunes, complemented by a great band and Ronson's much underrated voice, make this a "must" have for anyone's collection.
Bowie fans, like the reviewer who gave this three (three?!!) stars, tend to downplay Mick's role, but just check the credits that Ronno was given on the Bowie LPs of the time, as well as on Lou Reed's Transformer, Mott the Hoople's All the Young Dudes etc etc. And that's just the credit he was given. He never even got credit for the Rebel Rebel riff on Diamond Dogs - bad show David! Listen to Lou on the Transformer Classic Albums DVD - that tells you who Reed reckoned was the real talent at those sessions! The string parts for Perfect Day were jotted own in moments, as were, presumably the strings for Bowie's albums of the time (Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Alladin Sane). And as for the ripping guitar chords and sky-high lead lines - they are all over Bowie's Hunter's Reed's etc albums of the early 70s.
And they are here boys and girls!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ronson's finest hour 22 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want to sample Mick Ronson at his finest (apart from on Bowie albums) this is the place to be.The guitar playing is superb the production is sublime. Apart from the disastrous cover of Presley's 'Love me Tender' the first single (did he not want a hit or what?)which I incidentally bought fervently and hated even more fervently.
Scrub that track and the rest of the original album is first rate. Bowie contributes one song 'Growing up and I'm Fine' which is a classic and should have been the obvious single and writes the lyrics for ' Music is Lethal' and co- writes 'Hey Ma Get Papa'. Also here are 'Only after Dark' a hit for The Human League in an inferior over. Annette Peacock's 'I'm the One' and
the towering 'Pleasure Man' (proof if any that Ronson neded a decent lyricist beside his great tunes. 'Slaughter on Tenth Avenue' is hero for all axe heroes to bow down to. The extra tracks are curios rather than essential listening. If you liked Ziggy period Bowie this is right up your street.Ronson a flawed genius? . Oh yes, definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of atmosphere and style 2 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The very best evidence that Mick Ronson was a talent in his own right and not just a side man. Brilliant arrangements, imaginative production and a unique guitar sound. Most impressive for a first solo effort, a great talent now sadly missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Sideman Steps Out In Style 17 May 2011
By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Mick Ronson was never a natural front man. As the amazingly gifted guitarist, occasional pianist and string arranger for David Bowie's Spiders From Mars, he was a natural, and very complementary foil to Bowie's otherworldly creations, be it Ziggy or Aladdin Sane. He shared management at the time with Bowie (Main Man), and when Bowie 'retired' in 1973 (albeit temporarily), it was felt that enough of Bowie's audience would run with Ronno as a soloist. This, his first solo album, reinforced the notion that Ronson was a very gifted musician, however, as a songwriter, he lacked a truly distinctive voice. Also, and this is perhaps the most unusual aspect of this album, he pays homage to the avant-garde performer Annette Peacock (he'd played on her 'I'm the One' I'm the Onealbum) via the tracks 'I'm The One' and 'Love Me Tender' (he'd also record her song 'Seven Days'). However, 'Slaughter On Tenth Avenue' is nonetheless an excellent album. Ronson plays magnificent guitar throughout, particularly on the brilliantly arranged title track (in which the Aladdin Sane era keyboard player Mike Garson adds wonderful piano), and the medley of 'Pleasure Man' / 'Hey Ma Get Papa' is a well-arranged and incisive cut. The Italian ballad, translated into English by David Bowie, 'This Is For You', is probably the weakest thing on here, but elsewhere, 'Only After Dark' (later covered by the Human League) sparkles, and Bowie's 'Growing Up And I'm Fine' has real charm. If you're a fan of 'The Man Who Sold The World', 'Hunky Dory', 'Ziggy Stardust', or 'Aladdin Sane', then I'm sure that this album may well appeal. Ronson's no longer with us, sadly, and I am sure that someone as talented as he would have contributed much, much more to music had he lived. This album is a strong and suitable epitaph for the man.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (vinyl) 2 Feb 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I love this album, and the opportunity to have a new vinyl version was too good to miss.
On first hearing the album sounds as fresh as ever, a lot brighter sonically and more 'upfront' in comparison to the original RCA LP.
This comes at some cost however, the fade-in of piano at the start of 'Growing Up and I'm Fine' is less subtle, and the chorus, which on the original pressing was louder than the verse, is the same average volume as the verse.
The whole album, has at some point been remastered with a sizable dose of dynamics compression. this is even more noticeable on 'Music is Lethal' where the dynamics of the crescendo at the end are squashed.
So, one star lost for the mastering in this release, but a great album from a true guitar hero, fine musician, singer and arranger, and by all accounts, a genuinely good person.
