Is that Sugar Blue's only appearance with the Stones?

No, 11 September 1989, East Troy as well.

I think there has been some others, in and around Chicago, besides just those two
appearances - but i’m not certain.

As fars as I know only Knebworth with the Barbarians, but that's it.

In February 1981 Ron Wood started recording his solo album “1, 2. 3, 4” in his garage “Dustbin Studio” in Mandeville Canyon,
California. Andy Johns was there as a producer and sound engineer.

"1234 is Ron Wood at his most Dylanseque ("Outlaws" and "Fountain of Love"). He was hanging with Bob quite a bit in this period (appearing on the Shot Of Love album) and you can hear Dylan's influence in Ronnie's singing/phrasing and some of the lyrics. "She Never Told Me" reminds me quite a bit of "Where Are You Tonight?", the epic final track from Street Legal, for example. "Outlaws" would be a good runner up for the greatest Bob Dylan song Bob Dylan never wrote as well.

As a record 1234 doesn't hold up quite as well as Gimme Some Neck does. A few of the songs seem more like jams than songs, for one thing, though as expected Ronnie excels on guitar, slide and bass. His vocals on the other hand...this was the period where Ronnie was heavily into freebasing cocaine and you can hear it in his wretched vocals."

""She Never Told Me" is the best song on the album and like "Outlaws" another prime candidate for greatest Dylan song Bob never wrote. -

Exile, this is a great find. "1234" has always been the most obscure Wood album. The one that has been hardest to get credits and photos. Incredible!

I dont see it as Dylanesque on that album at all. But it is a superb, scattered and shattered album. but there are so many good parts. It takes repeated listening to make sense of those loose jams on Side 2 especially.
I love the breakdown of "Down to the Ground". Good chords. And "Fountain of Love" is that one song that is on every Woody album, where you are totally blown away by the sophistication. There is one of those on all his solo records.
My favorite part of the whole album is on "Priceless", when ronnie sings something like "Been a lot of places in my life, loved a lot of women, oh boy and I ain't lyin, I ain't lyin." And it always strikes me: that he really is not lying. You know, guys always sing that in their songs "I ain't tellin no lie etc". But they usually are. But with Ronnie it hit me: he is not lying at all.

Thanks for the insight. I'll have to give this album a chance. It didn't strike my fancy on a single listen. I'm looking forward to giving it some good listens.

I am a huge Ron Wood solo fan, and it took Stonestod, here in these pages, years ago, to set me straight on the greatness of this album.

Jim Ford

Jim Ford is most famous song is probably "Harry Hippie", a song
recorded and released by Bobby Womack in 1973. Jim co-wrote "Outlaws" with Ron
Wood which was released on Ron Wood's 1234 album.

Jim Ford only released one album, 1969's Harlan County, during his life but he
had plenty of stray singles that accumulate over the years. Most of these
found their way onto Bear Family's 2007 release The Sounds of Our Time, which
reissued the full Harlan County album, along with these 45-rpm rarities and
unheard demo tapes.

Ford revealed to journalist L-P Anderson that there was a whole bunch of
unheard tapes, not sitting in the vault but rather in a canvas bag in his
trailer. The notoriously ornery, uncooperative Ford eventually agreed to
release these tapes but he didn't live to see the release of Point of No
Return, a 2008 compilation of unheard songs. Unheard doesn't necessarily mean
unknown, as this contains Ford's own versions of "I'm Ahead If I Can Quit
While I'm Behind" and "Harry Hippie," songs popularized by his disciples
Brinsley Schwarz and his friend Bobby Womack, who also cut the title track,
"Point of No Return."

The Bo Diddley/Ron Wood compisition "They Don't Make Outlaws Like They Used To"
was composed by Ron Wood and Jim Ford. Ron and Jim also composed "Fountain of
Love" from 1234 and arrainged by Rod Stewart. "She Never Told Me" is another
Wood/Ford collaboration.



JIM FORD "Sweet Baby Mine": [www.youtube.com]

I love Jim Ford's voice always. It's not that easy to follow his music because there is a good bit of it, but scattered on compilations. "Sweet Baby Mine" shows Bobby Womack's influence on Woody during 'Now Look"; very good interpretation, with soul.

Test Pressings







Hang Fire from the album Tattoo You

B-side "Neighbours"

Released April 1982 - Format 7"

Recorded 1978–1979 (basic track), 1981 (overdubs)

"Hang Fire" is a song by rock and roll band The Rolling Stones from their 1981 album Tattoo You.

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Hang Fire" is a fast-paced, up-tempo rock and roll track, which belies the happy beat with sharp, satirical lyrics directed squarely at England's economic decline through the 1970s.

“In the sweet old country where I come from, Nobody ever works, Yeah nothing gets done/We hang fire, we hang fire.”

The song is a bleak look at English society of the time.[1] The lyrics lament an unemployed working class Englishman who would rather bet the horses than try to marry into the upper class, the only way to get ahead in English society.


“You know marrying money is a full time job/I don't need the aggravation/I'm a lazy slob.”

The song is one of the few times the band wrote an overtly political song, and it is notable that it was never released as a single in England, even though the band was touring Europe during the single's North American release.

Richards was asked about the track in a 1981 Rolling Stone magazine interview where he admits the track relates to England and the "ugly politicians" who had caused the country to decline when the "money got tight".[2]

The title expression "hang fire" (by formal definition) means to do nothing, to delay, wait, hold back, or hesitate.[3] The phrase originally denoted the instance when a gun, using an antique type of ignition such as percussion cap, or flintlock, would fail or markedly delay to fire when the trigger was pulled.

"Hang Fire" was first written and recorded during the Some Girls sessions in Paris. Released as the third single from Tattoo You, the song became a radio hit in the US, where it reached No. 20 on the singles chart. The song was played heavily on the Stones' tours of 1981 and 1982, but has been played scarcely since. Its B-side, "Neighbours", would become an airplay hit and a video was also made for the song.

[en.wikipedia.org]


--------


This song is a swipe at The Stones' home country of England. They imply that the people are lazy and the politicians incompetent. The Stones rarely performed in England because of the huge taxes that were levied on entertainers; it was much more profitable for them to live and work elsewhere.



A "hang fire" is a delay from when a trigger is pulled and the gun actually fires. The metaphor could apply to the lazy people who won't take action. It's also a great phrase to sing, which Mick Jagger does a few different ways throughout the song, sometimes stretching out "fire," and other times keeping it contained.


The Stones first recorded the track in 1978 at the Some Girls sessions. Lyrics were added and it was repackaged for Tattoo You.


The original title was "Lazy Bitch," probably referring to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher.


This was released as a single in America but not England.

Specialty Records Corp. issued many test pressings in the US for Warner,
including a few one-sided numbers, otherwise unreleased on 7" [e.g. 'Dance' in
1980, previously reviewed in this section].

'Tops' certainly ranks among these oddities. Red stamped 'FEB 19, 1982', with a
blank back label, it bears the same catalogue number 'RS 21300' as 'Hang
Fire', the 3rd and last single extracted from the LP 'Tattoo You'.

Actually not that weird if you consider that another 7" test pressing, with the
same number and date, was pressed for 'Neighbours' with 'Tops' on the flip
side: it simply shows that such coupling was once tipped for the follower of
'Waiting On A Friend' [a video was also shot for 'Neighbours' by then].


In the end, 'Neighbours' found its way on the B-side of 'Hang Fire' of course
[whom a later one-sided test pressing also exists, dated 'FEB 22, 1982'], and
'Tops' was simply dropped, making this one-sided test pressing highly sought-
after [the track would not appear on any other official 7" worldwide].

1982









LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Concert tour logistics pioneer Edwin
Shirley, co-founder of Edwin Shirley Trucking, has died from complications of
Cancer on April 16th. He was 64 at the time of his passing.

Shirley, along with his friend Roy Lamb, launched Edwin Shirley Trucking (later
EST) in 1974, which, at the time, was the first transport company to
specialize in transportation and logistics for rock music.

The company started small, with just one truck, but by the 1980s, was handling
some of the largest tours in the market, including The Rolling Stones, Led
Zeppelin and Paul McCartney and eventually became the largest such company in
Europe.

Shirley also launched Edwin Shirley Staging, which built stages for shows such
as London's Live Aid in 1985 and the exchange of Hong Kong from the U.K. to
China.

In addition to his work with live music, Shirley also was involved with Three
Mile Island Studios, a well-regarded film and television studio.

Edwin Shirley was a rock and roll tour organiser, film studio manager, and
impresario. He co-founded Edwin Shirley Trucking in 1974, which became one of
the largest music transport companies in Europe. He went on to convert old
bonded warehouses in the east end of London into the successful film and
television recording studio, Three Mills Island Studios.

Shirley's language skills and knowledge of theatre lighting and sound led him
into jobs on tour with the Rolling Stones and other prominent bands of the
1970s. After working on numerous Rock and Roll tours, he established Edwin
Shirley Trucking with Roy Lamb.

Edwin Shirley Trucking became indelibly associated with live music tours. In an
obituary on Planet Rock Radio, Bernard Doherty referred to the apocryphal
notion that "You haven't really made it until Edwin Shirley is moving your gear
around". Brian May of Queen, noted Shirley's importance to their touring
operation: "Edwin was at the head of Queen's vehicle convoy for so many years I
can't begin to remember how many."


Edwin Shirley

Having built a successful trucking company, Shirley started a new company Edwin
Shirley Staging which built stages for a number of large concerts including
Live Aid in 1985.
