Given that it's incredibly difficult to get hold of Ronnie Lane albums these days, the two-star review of this release doesn't seem very constructive. Anymore For Anymore was Ronnie Lane's first album after leaving the Faces and it's a small masterpiece of pastoral folk-rock, throwing in touches of zydeco, ragtime and rock & roll. It's hard to find, but I'd say anyone who enjoys the folkier side of the Faces, or indeed the first four Rod Stewart albums, is going to love this. The fact that the bonus tracks (17 of them!) have been released elsewhere shouldn't deter you, given that they are consistently excellent in their own right and the box set on which they originally featured seems to be out of print. Then again, this version of the album is apparently deleted too. If it comes up again and you've any interest in Ronnie Lane, buy it straight away, because it's great.

I can't believe mine is the first review of this album, as I've owned various copies of it since it was first released in the 70s. It was the album where Ronnie Lane turned his back on stardom, and many of the lyrics reflect his desire for a simpler lifestyle out on the road on an old circus caravan as I recall. Other songs obviously come from his background - music hall (Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage), American folk songs (Amelia Earhart and Careless Love). Lovely stuff.

Oh, this is such a joyous album to listen to and I cannot believe it's almost forty years since I bought this album on vinyl in 1974. If you have this already, I bet it brings a smile to your face. If you don't have it and you are persuaded by this review, see if it doesn't !

After Lane had left The Faces - due mainly to issues with Stewart - and to make a little money (which he needed at the time), he went into the studio with Benny Gallagher, Graham Lyle, Bruce Rowland and others to produce the very catchy, top twenty single, "How Come" which was backed with "Tell Everyone" and "Done This One Before". The former, "Tell Everyone" was the 2nd track on The Faces' 2nd album "Long Player" and though it was Stewart that took the vocal there, this 'solo' version is much better due, I believe, to Lane's singing and the more respectful interpretation of his own song. There's also a sumptious sax solo from Gallagher & Lyle sessionman Jimmy Jewell ("Love And Affection" - Joan Armatrading) which really fits the song like a well-worn glove. Some CDs (pressed later obviously) include "How Come" and "Done This One Before" though the album order suffers from these inclusions. ("Careless Love" is such a great opening track on the original album order.)

However, the original album opens with the old traditional song "Careless Love"* and this is simply a wonderful opener and sets the tone for the whole album with its 'loose feel' and (very carefully sloppy) production** by Lane.

* (or W.C. Handy song - dependent on what the history books tell us. I heard Lane say in concert [at The University of Leeds in 1975] that "I did the arrangement and copped for the royalties!

Superb! An expensive and difficult album to get hold of (record companies take note...... A re-release would sell very well, I'm sure) but so worth it. Ronnie Lane was an undeniable genius and should be celebrated as such. This album will make you sing, dance, laugh and cry. The man had a knack of writing songs that (to my knowledge) has never been equalled and this, his first solo album, is possibly his finest offering. If you can't buy this album then there are some much cheaper download options available as sort of "best ofs", "How Come" being one but whatever you do, purchase some Ronnie Lane music and fall in love with it. I have, for many years been a "Small Faces" and "Faces" fan but have only discovered Ronnie's solo work with "Slim Chance" in the last couple of years, I now know that I've saved the best 'til last. Cannot speak highly enough of the man or this album........ Wish you were here, Plonk.
