I've Got My Own Album To Do

Is Rod Stewart on "If you've Got to make a fool out of somebody"? Of course it doesn't even credit Jagger on "Fire" or "Am I Groovin You".

I bought the LP for $2.98 in 1997, at Half Price Books, according to the price tag. Now I'm trying to pack it up to move once again. This one is a keeper.

You got a great deal. There is a case to be made for this being the best "solo" Stones record (even though Wood wasn't in the band yet). Taylor is also on the record, uncredited, as is George Harrison (Far East Man). So, four Rolling Stones, a Beatle, and Rod Stewart. Not bad.

and a great Keith Richards vocal on 'Sure The One You Need'...

my favorite of all the solo Stones albums and Ronnie wasn't in the band at that point...but Keith came to live with him..sealed the deal

My 2nd fave, right after Wandering Spirit.

I can safely say that the world's youngest "I Can Feel the Fire" fan is my 3-year-old son. I accidently left the CD in my player and any time the thing is powered up you get Ronnie's masterpiece blasting. The only one complaining is my wife. But she hasn't bothered to take the thing out and toss it in the fire, so maybe she secretly likes it, too.

I've Got My Own Album To Do?

5 out of 5 stars is my review.

The liner notes are on the LP sleeve (illustrated by Ronnie) and list who plays what and sings where (including Rod, Mick, Keith, and Mr. Taylor). Mick gets an "inspiration by" credit for "I Can Feel the Fire" just as Ronnie did on "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll" the same year. Pretty sure the Warner Archive CD reproduces the sleeve. I don't think the first CD issue (retitled CANCEL EVERYTHING) did, though. The back cover photo of the group at the Wick includes Bobby Keyes who doesn't appear on the LP. Agreed it's a great album. Ronnie's first five solo albums (not including the soundtrack LP with Ronnie Laine that was recorded in 1972, but went unreleased for four years) are all great albums that at times equal or even better some Stones tracks during the same period. Since then, he's lost me in a big way. A pity.

My copy has an inner sleeve with a sepia-toned picture showing some people walking down towards a parade. The caption below reads: "Saturday, September 23, 1917 Burbank, California." The other side advertises "THE WARNER/REPRISE LOSS LEADERS". Of course it's entirely possible that at some time between 1974 and the present, sleeves got switched.

EDIT: I'll check the CD notes when in hand, thanks!

It's a real beauty. There really isn't a weak track. Such great playing and such a great feel. It's a pity Ronnie didn't treat guitar playing as a craft and take his playing to higher levels because on that album he showed how great he can be.

mick and ronnie wrote iorr and i can feel the fire -they split them up, ronnie took one and mick took the other.

for years i was dying to see keith do sure the one you need and then the barbarians tour came - "she may not be the one you're thinkin of.....and he just nailed it,dead solid perfect.

i considered ronnies records like a part of the stones catalogue at that point,it was just them working under woodys name anyway. now look and that other one...released in 79,i cant remember the name of it but it was good too.had seven more days on it..and f.u.c her,ha ha

Pity Ronnie cannot get on to his management, and get Own Album and Now Look reissued as deluxe packages, with outtakes etc.

No need to ask who got the raw end of that deal then!?

It didn't help Ronnie's bank account then but I like I Can Feel the Fire more than It's Only Rock and Roll. If Ronnie had released It's Only Rock and Roll with his lead vocal it wouldn't have sold either. With Jagger it was meta and an anthem. And Ronnie got to join the band. So I think he made the right deal.

I bought mine from Japan in the mid 80's. I played it all the time and I was the only one among my buddies to own it."Groove" is the word to define that record and a lot of it.
Rock and roll,
Mops

Is this really true ? Hmmmm....interesting. iorr is actually the first Stones single I thought was just so-so. Too sing-along-y! A little Slade-ish ! My choice for worst ever song : We are the champions.

While it is "sing along", the lyrics are quite clever.

Bought this as an LP when it first came out, before Ronnie joined the Stones.

Love it. It is the perfect integration of Stones and Faces, two of the greatest bands ever.

Tomcasagranda, I've been in touch with Ronnies former management about this years ago. This album deserves a deluxe edition with all the single mixes and outtakes. (Overlaps Now Look by the way). Ronnie's management and Warner Archives should stick their heads together and make it happen.

Taylor is not uncredited on my vinyl copy. He's credited on Shirley and Crotch Muic.

By far the best solo album by any Stone. Simply awesome.

'act together '...which was probably originally titled 'sh*t together'...indeed

would love for this to be done. this is one of my all-time favorite albums.

Here is the very detailed inner of the US-gatefold sleeve. Non-gatefolds had an innersleeve (fold out sheet to be correct..).
Hope it helps a little bit.

I had the vinyl copy but it's so long ago...They left the credits off the CD.
