Ranking right up there with Harry Nilsson's Pussy Cats LP in terms of the greatest "buddy" album of all time, Ron Wood's first solo effort was one that simultaneously showcased his immense talent as a guitarist and songwriter, as well as his seemingly endless pool of kick ass rock star friends that were willing to lend him a hand. Considering his reputation as one of the all around nicest guys in rock music, it's no surprise that the list of guest musicians here includes not only the majority of the Rolling Stones, half of the the Faces and George Harrison but a wealth of contributors that remain uncredited (although I swear I hear the voice and drums of The Band's Levon Helm on a couple of tracks). Such an immense pool of musicians and the egos that they carry could have easily overwhelmed the proceedings here, but the sense of camaraderie and unabashed joy rules over this album, and the result is a tight collection of tunes that sounds exactly as you'd expect it to when considering the participants. Equal parts Stones and Faces, the LP features duets galore, most notably Jagger and Wood on the opening track, Keith Richards is all over the place here, obviously enjoying the brief step away from the spotlight, and the Faces' Ian McLagan is an absolute monster on the Wurlitzer piano. Hell, even Rod Stewart took a break from chasing supermodels to join in on the action. Easily one of the finest off-the-radar albums of the decade.
