Rare Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane Soundtrack to Be Released on CD For the First TimeArtist: Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane
Title: Mahoney’s Last Stand
Release Date: February 2, 2018
Label: Real Gone Music
What do two Faces do when their lead singer (bon vivant Rod Stewart) doesn’t show up for the Ooh La La recording sessions? They work on a soundtrack for an obscure film by actor and friend Alexis Kanner (most famous for his guest roles on the late-‘60s TV series The Prisoner), and draft the uppermost rank of British rock royalty to play on it!
Indeed, given the pedigree of the personnel on this project, it is rather stunning how obscure this 1976 album from Faces members Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane remains, having only been issued on CD abroad and for a brief time at that; one suspects it has much to do with the flop of the film (which appears to have only been screened at the Canadian Film Festival), and the fact that the original LP was released four years after it was recorded in 1972.Just listen to the roll call of session men on Mahoney’s Last Stand, which was produced by Glyn Johns, himself a British rock and roll noble of good standing and fresh from producing Paul McCartney and Wings’ Red Rose Speedway when he worked on this album: Pete Townshend (guitar and “special electronic effects”), Blind Faith and Family member Rick Grech, fellow Faces Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones, soon-to-be fellow (for Wood) Rolling Stones habitués Ian Stewart, Bobby Keys, and Jim Price, Micky Waller (Wood’s fellow member in the Jeff Beck Group of the late ‘60s), and Grease Band member Bruce Rowland to name but a few.
As for the music, much of it has a rustic, rural feel in keeping with the film’s setting, which follows the misadventures of a recluse who rents a ramshackle farm in the Canadian countryside, with some nods (“Woody’s Thing”) towards the blues-rock Wood would explore with Keith Richards in the Stones.
But without a doubt the highlight is Lane’s “Just for a Moment,’ which is here in both vocal and instrumental versions; it’s a prime example of the wistful roots-rock that made Lane’s post-Faces solo career so compelling. Richie Unterberger’s liner notes examine this little-known detour in the careers of two British rock legends…fascinating for Faces and Stones fans!Track List:

I found the missing part (from 3:07 until 4:05) on some bootleg-website and was able to catch the streaming. So I could fit it in. I think the album side would have be too long if they had included it (get yer ya ya’s out). I don’t see any other plausible reason for omitting it. Notice that the original vocals is an overdub. Of course the inserted ‘new’ part has the original vocals (Kleermaker)January 9, 2018 at 9:10 am #72982January 29, 2018 at 9:13 am #73159

Remember the Scott Cantrell incident?
«The account of the events of the night of July 20th remains sketchy. Pallenberg and Richards’ ten-year-old son Marlon was downstairs watching television with Jeffrey Sessler, 25, a family friend. Pallenberg and Cantrell were upstairs in the master bedroom watching a program on the tenth anniversary of the moonwalk. Pallenberg told police that Cantrell “was lying on top of the bed, over the covers” and that she “was tidying up” with her back toward him when she heard the shot. “He was lying on his back and I turned him over,” she said. “I heard a gurgling sound. He was choking on his blood. I picked up the revolver and put it on the chest of drawers. I don’t like guns.»January 30, 2018 at 7:45 am #73181
Thank you DaPowderman, yes when you say it i remember, i knew i had read about the name somewhere but couldnt recall, heavy and sad story. I think it’s time for a Marlon book, but i guess it won’t happen. It seems like People related to Keith has/had a lot of integrity
