Most Jailhouse Rock - Ronnie Wood* - Anthology The Essential Crossexion don't think of Rolling Stones ' guitarist Ronnie Wood as a solo artist. His career in pop music has been a long one and is entering its fifth decade.
Like his former Faces ' bandmate Rod StewartWood has always been a supreme collaborator, even on his own projects.
For the most part, the compilers at Virgin have done an excellent job here. Wood fans could argue over track selections forever, but what you get is a single-disc overview of his solo albums, and another single-disc overview of his work with the aforementioned bands. The former cut also features David Bowie on backing vocals, but it's "Cancel Everything" that offers the real magic: just listen to the guitar interplay between Richards and Wood.
But it's the funkiness of "Somebody Else Might" with Bernard Fowler immediately preceding the rowdy rocker "Josephine" that offers a wonderfully and wildly contrasting sonic picture of Wood 's range. Disc two is fascinating more for the cuts from the Birds and the Creation than for the better-known, later material. It's raw and yet derivative of a lot of stuff out at the time. Wood admits that "You're on My Mind," the first song he ever wrote, was inspired by the Yardbirds no kidding.
In his liner notes, Wood comments on the more psychedelic Creation material by simply saying: "Hovering on the verge of something good.
But the two Creation cuts here are really a mess, as though nobody knew what to leave out. There are three tracks from Beck-Olaand one from Truth ; they're earthy with wild guitar effects and a woolly savagery in the rhythm tracks that serves to focus on Rod the Mod's singing style and of course, Jeff Beck 's guitartistry.
Wood keeps them all from going off the rails while adding some imaginative effects all Mountain Song / Kentucky Woman - Holly Near - Imagine My Surprise! own.
There are a whopping eight songs here that represent what must have been a beautiful time in Wood 's life, when he was with the Faces and with Rod Stewart who was always backed by the Faces in the early days, he just emerged as a killer frontman. The slide workout that occurs on "Black Limousine" is a fine set-ender; it's all rowdy and strutting, but it's really "Everything Is Turning to Gold," that takes the day.
It's spooky, funky, and slippery. The raw energy and Charlie Watts ' in-the-pocket beat, which everyone else plays all around, is amazing.
