After leaving the Faces,small or otherwise,I felt that Ronnies music justgot better, and was so from the heart.You can feel the country boy comingout of the speakers straight to your soul. This cd is a great buy as youget 2 albums on one disc,Ronnie Lanes Slim Chance and the album One ForThe Road. The first album is good old country rock, while the second givesthe feel of a long hot summer. Listeners will be able to identify with thesongs One For The Road,(after a good night out!) Steppin and Reelin (thewedding), try not to tap your feet or get up and dance! There are somebeautiful tracks on this album that will ring a tear to the eye.Ronniehas sadly now gone behind the sun,but thankfully his legacy is a lot ofgreat music captured on disc. If you only buy one of his albums,you cantgo wrong with this one. The little fella who inspired the likes of PaulWeller,Oasis,etc has done well!

Ronnie Lanes Slim Chance is a thing if rare beauty.. Its a crafty little album full of hope and jovial times. The mans spirit and enduring charm shines through each and every song, whether it be one of the covers or his own material.

This album evokes a summers evening with your best mates, loved ones and a barrel of the finest, all washed down with one of this countries greatest and most sadly missed treasures...three cheers for Ronnie!!!

As Van M once said, "Take me back, take me way, way back ...."

Back to 1975 !

[This followed on from the gloriously shambling but brilliant "Anymore For Anymore" - which didn't originally feature the bouncy hit single "How Come" (it does on the CD version as a bonus along with the other of the two songs on the B-side "Done This One Before"). It did however, include the wonderful "The Poacher" (another one that got away) in 1974.]

But, in 1975 this superb album came on to the market and what a pleasure it is to listen to from beginning to end. Once again, this is an album that I have never, ever tired of hearing. One thing I do remember from the original reviews was that though Ronnie had been ill, he was getting back to full recovery "having lived on Guinness and OTHER health foods" for a year !

Where the eponymous "Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance" succeeds even more than "Anymore For Anymore" is the addition of multi-instrumentalists, the late Ruin O'Lochlainn on piano, organ and soprano, alto and tenor saxes;
Steve Simpson on guitars, mandolin, violin and harmonica and Charlie Hart on piano, organ, accordion and violin.

Oh, and the material, some of it original and some covers from the 50's and 60's and even one from the 1930's !

There's a cover of "Stone", culled from the Faces' "First Step" album which originally, Rod Stewart got to sing. This goes into the lovely "Bottle Of Brandy" where Steve Simpson playing mandolin wrings the maximum emotion and pathos from both the lyric and melody of the song. This is followed by the wonderful instrumental "Street Gang" (written by Lane/Simpson/O'Lochlainn) and features some very melodic interplay by the latter on both alto and tenor saxes.

Ronnie Lane. A small Small Face, a still small Face, then ringmaster to a motley circus troupe of musicians, dancers, jugglers, fire-eaters, and - I wouldn`t be surprised - lion-tamers. When they came to town and set up their tent, they called themselves the Passing Show. Ronnie was a man of the people, played and sang his unique brand of natural downhome rootsy goodtime music solidly based in blues, rock`n`roll, country, as well as a healthy dollop of music hall and street songs.
How I miss him.
Much of what you`d want of Ronnie is on this single disc of his first two LPs, Slim Chance and One For The Road, the latter a perfect title for this lot, whatever way you take it.
I can`t imagine anyone not liking this highly likeable music. It`s full of melodic rock, with a light and almost reflective feel to much of it. Voices are rarely raised.
The songs are great too! Most of them are by Ronnie - let`s not forget he`d already co-written many of the Small Faces` hits - as well as versions of Fats Domino`s imperishable Blue Monday, Chuck Berry`s sublime You Never Can Tell, and the old standards Country Boy and I`m Gonna Sit Right Down...
Just under 80 minutes of Ronnie and the lads - terrific musicians all - including a booklet with notes and pics, and twenty songs sung by one of English rock`s true national treasures. A man who simply wanted to sing good songs, entertain the people, and pitch his tent on the village green.
Take these wonderful songs to your heart, play them often, let`s remember Ronnie this way. I`m sure he`d have liked that.

Immortal.

This is a 'Two On One' compilation of Ronnie's second and third albums 'Slim Chance' and 'One For The Road'. Due to lack of space one track of each album ('Snake' and 'Single Saddle') has been ommitted. This compilation album has become relatively expensive to obtain.
My advise to Ronnie Lane collectors is to check out a more recent and reasonably priced compilation called 'Oh La La: An Island Harvest'. Right now (February 23, 2015) you can get a copy of that double CD collection for a measely 9,99 English Pounds! Apart from the two albums you will also get a number of outtakes, rehearsals, singles A- & B-sides and a nice set of previously unreleased BBC recordings!
