It's a bit strange writing a glowing review for a CD that is quite expensive. At the moment of writing this review you had to shell out 27 UK pounds or almost 50,-- US dollars to get this double CD set. I could get a copy for 10 UK pounds because there seemed to be a light scratching on one of the discs. To this day I haven't been able to locate this so called scratch. The CD's both play fine.
I prefer disc one. Ronnie and his band Slim Chance get every opportunity to bring their typical brand of folky, Irish and Country influenced music. The added attraction of course is the fact that it is played live in the studio. The musicians stay close to the originals but also manage to keep the music fresh and spontane. It's a joy to listen to. The same goes for disc two, save for one difference. There is someone present with the band who talks us through the various songs that are played. It's the only small issue that keeps the CD for getting 5 stars. I would however given 4,5 stars instead of 4 if that had been possible.
It would be nice if the complete Ronnie Lane catalogue could be re-released against mid price rates complete with bonus tracks, just to prevent some people making up to 150 pounds for their used copy.

Evocative collection of Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance's (various incarnations) sessions for the BBC. Some duplication but excellent performances. In truth, there's not much here that aficionados won't have in the studio albums - but as a gentle reminder of a much missed musician's eccentric meanderings up the cul-de-sac of whimsical country/folk rock, it's highly recommended.

one for the road 12 Dec. 2004
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I noticed this had an "average customer review" of only three stars (!), so I had to say something. This record is f&#%ing brilliant. I don't know why all these copies are so cheap - when I got mine a few years back, it was $30 - so buy 'em while you can!

Ronnie Lane is woefully underappreciated, as one listen of these songs can prove. The sound quality is excellent, as these were radio performances. "Ooh La La", "Careless Love", and "Anniversary" in particular have never sounded better. It really captures Slim Chance's whole wonderful, Brit-Appalachia sound. BUY!

So sad he's gone, but these recordings help ease the loss. I wish I could have seen the band... God they were good...

Love Ronnie Lane, BUT...!!! The sound quality is terrible with regard to the vocals, especially on the second disc. Disappointing. It is like he did not have a microphone for the vocals and they were just picked up by a mic someplace else on the stage.

Rock the Poacher 1 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ronnie Lane was one of the true british rockers. Nothing new, musically, but sounding really good. These two cd:s comes from different sources recorded during the gypsy caravan that turned out to be A financially disaster. But, do in an appropriate way show how the Ronnie Lane Slim Chance really sounded,when on tour in the circus tent. Rock Your Blues away, Guitars (electric & accustic) fiddle & mandolin + drums & bass & some accordion. However, if you dont have any records with the band, the one to get hold on, is "ONE FOR THE ROAD. A five star album in any competition.
