I've Got My Own Album To Do - out on this date, 44 years ago
Date: September 13, 2018 16:05

Probably the best of all the Stones-related solo albums, and a lesson in varied and interesting rock, soul, funk and blues.

Yes, highly recommended.

I remember buying it on the day it was released.

Loved it from the off... and still regularly play that same lump of vinyl to this day.

By far, the best solo album by a Stone - even though he wasn't a Stone when he made it. Was lucky enough to go to the show he premiered it at the Kilburn Gaumont in 1974.

The first editions of the original vinyl came with an inner sleeve/insert which I luckily got.

Talk is Cheap pushes it close for me.

But those are certainly my two favourite solo offerings.

[That said, as time passes and with every listen, I'm finding Cross Eyed Heart to be a big grower.
Different animal altogether but I think wider appreciation of it will come with time]

I think i go w/ X-eyed Heart as my favorite. Got My Own Album is great though, and cool it has a couple Jagger/Richards tunes.

That inner insert was missing from the U.S. version, and also not included when the CD finally came out in the early 90's. (Odd, because they added a new photo to the Now Look CD packaging)

I got the insert when I bought a UK import copy from a remainder bin for $2.00 in '79. The information contained about who played on what tracks is essential, in my opinion.

I think that "I Can Feel The Fire" is brilliant, and sounds more alive than anything on the IORR album from that same year. (Same goes for "Pussy" from Monkey Grip) There are some other highlights, like "Mystifies Me" but taken as a whole, I think Now Look is a more consistent and overall better album.

Maybe next Spring we'll get an outstanding sounding 40th of Gimme Some Neck. Such a bad mix, but a great album

Would be great if the Stones gave this another shot live:

It's a great album and it's a shame it wasn't more greatly recognised by the public.
The song that appeared on now look "Breathe on Me" I believe was also from these sessions but couldn't fit on the album. It would have made another great addition IMO.

An edited version was released on the 'b' side of "I Can Feel The Fire".

Sure was.

Still have the single.

I love that song & remember being a little disappointed that Breathe on Me wasn't on the album.

Then it turned up on Now Look and all was forgiven .smiling smiley

Ronnie's solo works are sometimes much better than Stones. I love them

I have an actual CD in my truck, so I usually just grab a disc from the big Stones-y pile and play it. I must have at least 3-4 versions of IGMOATD. And I just listen to whatever I have on me. Somehow the actual Warner Bros official Ron Wood album disc got to the bottom of the mountain. I think I been listening to knock-off for last years.
I could not believe the audio that hit me this morning. From the second "Fire" started Newmark's drums were right there. Every percussion instrument. The shaker on "Shirley". The Strats on "Cancel Everything". The only one that is always a bit cluttered is the Harrison song. But what a treat.
