Someone at work just handed me a copy of this disk.
Anyone familiar with it? I can't really listen till I get home.

Gazza I think its Ronnie's best solo album.

Its the album that the New Barbarians toured behind in 1979.

Worth getting for the great intro to "We all get old" alone. A very underrated song.

Plus it was the first official release of Dylan's "Seven days" which he'd given to Ronnie in 1976.

nankerphelge Yep -- FUC Her is pretty funny too!

gotdablouse Is that the one that was recorded at the same time as Some Girls at Pathe Marconi in Boulogne? If it is indeed, yes that's certainly the most inspired period of his career. What a year that was for the boys, they just couldn't stop the songs flowing...in a year they wrote more (good) stuff than in the whole ten years after that probably...

Soldatti Great album, the best Ronnie's work for me, the sound is a little weak but good songs after all. Buried Alive is my fauvorite and the Seven Day's cover is great too.
The Stones and his members were so big and massive back then, that this album reached #45 on the US chart and stayed 13 weeks there!

Bloozehound I like this album too, but it's been a long damn time since I've heard it
November 30th, 2004 07:01 AM
bez85 Another great thing about the album is it's got Charlie Watts on most of the tracks...

Jair Yep, I agree, this record is special. I bought it the
vinyl when it was released.


But, one day, too high & crazy, I broke it in thousands of pieces. Now...well, now I have it the CD, which has a very low sound quality...(If I can say "low" quality...)


Anyway, today I rather Slide on This.
And I never heard 1234...

I bought "I've Got My Own Album To Do" on CD recently and it sucks for sound quality. The LP is much better to my ears.

Factory Girl Is "Slide on this" out of print?
November 30th, 2004 09:07 AM
Nellcote Seven Days is THE cut on this disc.

Nothing, I repeat Nothing beats the fire and intensity
of....
I Can Feel The Fire off of I've Got My Own Album To Do..
One of Rock's great overlooked gems
Wicked Pissa guitar lick, peppy MAC organ throughout, and those harmonies which would go on to bring a new era into The World's Greatest Rock N Roll Band...

Put It On-Play It Loud-NOW!

Saint Sway Ronnie gets dogged on this msg board all the time. But his 1st 2 solo records - I've Got My Own Album... and Now Look - are GREAT records. I absolutely love them. Very underated.

but the one thing those 2 records lacked was a collection of more rockin songs. And Gimme Some Neck really answers the bell with the rockers. They whole album is a blitzkrieg of nasty riffs. Its a great Friday night R&R record.

Buried Alive kicks ass. Ditto Infeckshun and Breakin My Heart.

just had a peek on some mail order sites and it does seem to harder to find than some of the other Woody CD's but it IS on amazon, ok. Seems to be a different cover, though!

Saint Sway what was the chronology of Gimme Some Neck coming out? Was it recorded before/during/or after Some Girls?

and when/how did Ronnie find the time to put out solo material during this busy period?

seems like after joining in '76, he managed to put out 2 solo albums between B&B and Some Girls

can someone clarify the time line on this and help explain. thanks

The basic tracks for Gimme Some Neck (Woody's 3rd solo album) were recorded during the Jan-March 1978 Some Girls sessions in Paris, although Woody didnt finish work on it until after the Stones finished their work for the year in October, when he went to LA to do the overdubs etc. It was released in April 1979.

Woody's second album "Now Look" was recorded in April 1975, immediately after the session he'd played on for Black and Blue in Munich (for about a week) and before he joined the Stones for rehearsals for the '75 tour. It was released in July 1975.

he also released a soundtrack album with Ronnie Laine in 1976 called "Mahoneys Last Stand". However, it had been recorded a few years earlier. As far as I'm aware the film wasnt released, but they ended up eventually releasing the album anyway.

And if that wasnt enough,one month after the Stones American tour ended on 8th August 1975, Ronnie fulfilled his commitments to The Faces with an 8-week US tour!!
