"Hard to believe(or is it)that in this bass-ackwards world that there are only two reviews on this classic two-fer recording of truth and grassroots wisdom from the Late Great Ronnie Lane. ONE FOR THE ROAD is a five star release in any book and has been sadly overlooked in this off-kilter age we live in. SLIM CHANCE is no slouch either.

No record collection is complete without and you owe it to yourself and to your children to own all of Ronnie's studio releases. They are all one of a kind, quality recordings of musicianship, truth and uncompromised individualism - all the way. One of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Cheers Ronnie!!"

"I've been listening to Ronnie Lane since the early 70s and have always enjoyed his music. This is a very fine album from a very sadly under-appreciated artist.This album is always played in rotation at our parties and it never fails that some guest will demand to know who it is. Beautiful sounds from a greatly missed soul."
An amazing find...

"I'd been vaguely aware of Ronnie Lane since the Small Face days. But Marriott got all the airplay with the Small Faces, followed by Rod Stewart with the Faces. You really had to buy the albums to get to the Ronnie Lane stuff, and unfortunately, I never did...

Recently, the Bottle Rockets (my favorite band) covered one of Lane's Faces tunes-- Ooh La La-- live. I loved the song. (Ironically, Ron Wood did the lead vocal for Ooh La La for the Faces, but you can see an amazingly great Ronnie Lane Slim Chance version on YouTube.) Several Bottle Rockets fans strongly recommended dipping into Ronnie Lane's work, so I did. I started with Slim Chance, and got absolutely hooked! It's musical, fun, well-crafted and multi-dimensional. It's instantly accessible yet it gets even better with each listen. I'm in the process of collecting everything Ronnie Lane did, and there are gems all over the place.

But start here!"
