"I thought i knew all the important Rolling Stones and affiliates Albums of that period. I had been trying to squeeze the most remote b-sides out of my Leon Russel, Dr John and Gram Parsons Albums and then...i came accross a copy of this Ron Wood - I've Got My Own Album To Do.! Apart from the fact that in light of history i find this a very witty title this is a f***ing great album. You can tell that everybody spent a lot of time in jamaica (lot's of reggae influences in the groove department) and it has these brilliant junkie riffs that keith richards and ron wood are so famous for. rightfully so. listen to it back to back with 461 ocean boulevard by eric clapton, who was not only on heroin too but hung out in jamaica with the boys but i think crashed his ferrari around the same time as keith crashed his Rolls, and you realize who has the better right (rhythm) hand. clearly Ron and Keith. Plus you have the not credited participation of mick jagger and rod stewart which makes this album great just because of who played on it. And they produced quality songs. Ron could have been somebody. He could have been a contender... but i guess the lure of playing with the rolling stones makes you reconsider your purpose in life, mind all the chicks, dope and arena tours. Now that Mick Jagger has officially turned himself into Jane Fonda doing aerobics, it's very nice to hear music from a time when all these guys still mattered and when they were on top of their game and not completely washed up."
