The only song I have listened to so far is "Talking about you" - I am not so sure if he does himself a favor with bringing that out. Anyway, the Stones are legends who are free to publish any kind of drollery. May RW should shoot a video in which he is chasing some young ladies down the street sing "I'm talking 'bout you, youhuoyou...".

Agree, this one isn't great. I'm spoiled by the Stones version - which I knew first, and due to that I am not that big on the Chuck Berry version either!

Start with Bob's Christmas album. If you enjoy Bob's version of "Must Be Santa" you'll probably enjoy 5 albums of Bob singing Sinatra's songbook.

Bob's version of Must Be Santa is hilarious and fantastic.
I hope it gets some radio play this Christmas .

My wish, a Dylan's cover album by Ronnie

That would be nice, maybe some of the more obscure Dylan tunes would work well. There's a chance he could even improve on some of them - very slim chance but you never know.
To set himself apart, maybe a spoken word tribute to Dylan without musical accompaniment.

Or maybe Ronnie covering Dylan covering Sinatra?

Sort of nice to hear Ronnie playing slide, but overall it's a bit rambling and incohesive...almost like a random bar band's rehearsal/warmup/soundcheck.

For me it's beautiful, I love Ronnie on the slide, unmistakable! He has a style of his own that may or may not like it, but it is authentic and personal. Even overall I don't see anything approximate.

Ronnie Wood with His Wild Five – Mad Lad – A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry

Mad Lad: A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry




Jim Hynes
November 12th, 2019

The fact that we have two Chuck Berry tribute albums released within two weeks of one another is purely coincidental—neither are marking any specific anniversary. Mike Zito hails from St. Louis, thus the rationale for his. Iconic Ronnie Wood’s rationale is initially more difficult to pin down, especially since the Rolling Stones’ member most closely associated with Berry is Keith Richards, but, of course, Berry is a hero to every rock ‘n’ roll guitar player. Like Keith Richards, Woods is a lifelong fan and has toured with Berry, (though Richards inducted Berry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and those two have been in films together). Nonetheless, Woods and his band The Wild Five recorded this live effort a year ago, a year after Berry’s passing, and this album will be the first in a trilogy of tributes to Woods’ musical heroes be recorded by this same unit in the coming years.

The 11 track album was recorded live at Wimborne’s Tivoli Theatre and features guest appearances from singer Imelda May and pianist Ben Waters. Any recording with Imelda May aboard is one that demands some interest. While the album contains mostly Chuck Berry songs, Wood wrote the opening “Tribute to Chuck Berry” and Maceo Merriweather penned “Worried Life Blues.” The inclusion of the latter as well as Berry’s own “Blue Feeling” give the album a nice balance of blues and rock ‘n’ roll. Also, just as Johnnie Johnson’s piano was integral part of Berry’s recordings, pianist Ben Waters handles that role well here.

Among the highlights are Imelda May’s rousing bluesy take on Berry’s “Wee Wee Hours,” Wood’s slide guitar playing on the title track and May again, this time bringing a splendid vocal on “Rock and Roll Music.” May also sings on “Almost Grown.” The energy throughout is strong with an engaged audience on familiar fare like “Back in the USA,” “Little Queenie” and “Johnny B. Goode.” Thankfully we’ll be hearing at least two more installments from this kick-ass band, honoring other musical heroes. Wood is a living legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. He does one of biggest mentors proud with this live set.

I gave the album its first listen this morning! Overall I love it!

The only tracks I don't like much are :

Talking About You
Little Queenie
Rock 'N' Roll Music



Talking About You & Little Queenie both fall well short of Stones versions, I think Ronnie should have chosen different tracks to cover. As for Rock 'N Roll Muisc, it doesn't get better than the Beatles cover ... or the Chuck Berry original for that matter, should have left that one off too.

However the rest is really good, Mad Lad is fantastic, and Wee Wee Hours cover is worth the price of the album on its own! Almost Grown is great, and Worried Life has always been a great cover, whether by Keith or Ronnie.

And Johnnie B. Goode!! As long as the riff is correct, there's no way to mess that one up, not even Alex P. Keaton / Michael Fox could ruin that (i.e. Back to the Future)

Ronnie Wood’s Mad Lad Tribute To Chuck Berry Is An Awful Lot of Fun

Hal Horowitz - November 15, 2019

Ronnie Wood
Mad Lad — A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry
(BMG)
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

It’s not exactly a stretch for Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood to tackle the songbook of arguably America’s most distinguished and storied rock and roller. After all, he’s been playing these licks, and in the case of “Little Queenie” one of these songs, since joining the Stones in 1977 and before that in the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group. He could probably roll through these nine Berry tracks (plus an original and a cover of “Worried Life Blues” that Berry recorded) in his sleep.

But Wood is too much of a devotee to not take this — the first of three albums that pay tribute to his influences — seriously. Wood hired a solid band featuring pianist Ben Waters (who released a 2011 tribute to Stones’ keyboardist Ian Stewart with guests Jagger, Wood and Richards) and singer Imelda May (a roots star in her own right) to crank out Berry’s hits and obscurities with energy and enthusiasm.

Since this is geared towards Berry and Stones fans, the decision to include oldies that have already been done to death like “Johnny B. Goode,” “Back in the USA” and “Rock n Roll Music” is frustrating. Certainly “Little Queenie,” that often appears in the Stones sets, could have been replaced with something more obscure. While Wood and band give it their all, the album is far more successful when digging into Chuck’s voluminous catalog to reveal deeper, less well-known nuggets. Tunes like the boogie-woogie “Almost Grown,” the slow blues of “Wee Wee Hours,” the chugging “Talking About You” and the instrumental title track that features Wood’s bittersweet, raw, slide guitar show different sides of Berry’s talent.

Wood has a hefty list of releases under his name, but as a vocalist he’s a notch less effective than his Stones’ buddy Keith Richards. Which is to say he talk-sings his way through the material, getting by on gusto more than singing talent. Much better is Imelda May, who burns through only a few selections — her “Wee Wee Hours” is an album highlight — and should have been given more chances to sparkle. While two saxes are listed in the credits, they also are underutilized and barely there in the mix. And at 40 minutes this runs short for a live show.

All that said, it’s an awful lot of fun. Wood and band are clearly enjoying themselves, pianist Waters — featured in two large photos in the booklet — shines throughout and the party vibe is contagious enough to make this a success not just as a tribute to Berry, but as a showcase for Wood, one of his most celebrated fans.

Didn't make it past the 2nd line of this article. Ronnie joining in '77 (!) and apparently not worth mentioning that Wyman was also on the Ben Waters tribute album to Ian Stewart.

Ha...indeed, of course! I just really remember it being notable at the time that Wyman was there, as it was the first time they'd recorded with him since '91 (as far as I knew?)

I think it’s a single LP and a single CD. The other LP-looking thing is, I believe, and album flat/artwork the size and look of the LP but just a sheet of paper.
