"Act Together"
Posted by: Elmo Lewis ()
Date: November 14, 2013 16:39

Been listening to lots of Ronnie's solo stuff lately and really love this song. It's on "I've Got My Own Album To Do". Written by Jagger/Richards but sang by Wood. A real Faces vibes.

Woulda been a great song for Mick to sing (with Keith harmonies) - think a better version of "Thru The Lonely Nights", if you haven't heard it. Ever played live? Your thoughts?

There's a (early) version of it on "Mahoney's Last Stand" as well (Wood/Lane album that came out after IGMOATD).

Here's the Stones's version.

things get off to a pretty good start on that album..!

I Can Feel The Fire-

I mean this album has got great Stones tracks..only its not a Stones album. and the rhythm section is one of the finest ever, again just my opinion..

the thing about it is until I saw the Kilburn concert I was convinced Keith did the vocal on this one! I don't know if Ron was just taking off on him or if it just naturally came out that way but it does(imo) sound spot on like Keith's vocals from that period (before his voice seemed to lower as on Main Offender-what was up with that anyway? just aging?)

Yeah, "Seven Days" is Ronnie doing a pretty good Dylan voice, too.

Good album that I used to play a lot.The Keith songs Act and Sure the one are both very good.Take a look is a great rocker.
Hey, the whole album is great. Have to play it again.
Only downer is the sound.
Newmark was a great drummer.Together with Weeks a hot rhyt. section. But it was buried in the mix. I always hated that.

I think the vinyl release sounds excellent. The cd is crap, unfortunately. ..

I think it is a joke on how Keith used to leave the "s" off of his name in the early days. Its obviously intentional.

Are you sure that's Ronnie singing on that track ? I always thought it was Keith...........

That's the first I've heard of it! I always thought it was a screw up.

I don't believe it was intentional. I knew a guy with the last name Wood, and he complained that people always put his name down as "Woods."

I seem to recall Ronnie saying that it was a screw up. Remember, in those days production art was all done by hand....there was no easy fix to center the album title. Do it all over or just scratch out the "S"

I think it was intentional. I operated printing presses from the late 70s-early 90s and that would have been proofread before a big run.It would not have taken much to create a new negative and burn new plates.
...it was on the negatives( you used multiple stations and plates on multi color) like that I'm sure.

I love that fuzz guitar sound. I think that there is no pedal on it, just Ronnie + guitar + amp.

I have both the vinyl album and the live concert dvd. Both are quality! Love the album. Mystifies Me is one of my favourites both on the album and live.

The First Barbarians live performance makes me wish Ronnie and Keef didn't smoke so they kept their voices for longer... However not many people are fans of Woody's voice I have found.

He came back with a bang on "I Feel like Playing", singing quite good again, imo.

His singing on on "Not For Beginners" was hilarious.

Nice moniker! grinning smiley

I've been waiting for this album to be remastered/rereleased for ages, hope it happens as a deluxe with the London show they did about the same time.

Don't think Ron would release the show again as he's already done it once officially.

Thanks mate! Yeah I like that album too. Don't think I have much from not for beginners though. I didn't enjoy very much of it from memory.
