In the past few days I have gone down a bit of a Ronnie Lane rabbit hole. Honestly, I was never too familiar with his work, but then I suppose most Americans probably are. I remember the ARMS shows from back in the day, and over the years have heard bits of the Small Faces & Faces. On hearing the stuff from Slim Chance I realized I needed to right a wrong. So instead of trawling the interweb, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if there is a solid overview of his entire career I should be looking at, or do I have to go the round of searching for collections of the specific groups or phases of his career? Any help appreciated.

You unfortunately missed out on the excellent boxset from 2019 which originally was about 」60 odd but is now extremely hard to find and very expensive. Very limited run it seems.

The single CD distillation is much more readily available but of course, much less comprehensive

One of my favourite artists from his solo forays into the UK charts in the early 70s.
Guess it was an indicator which way my musical tastes would go.

Leaning towards that one as well since that boxset seems unavailable but I知 going to do a little more digging. Looks like I値l have to explore his stuff by separate band. But Slim Chance seems best place to start

I bought the Ooh La La Slim Chance double compilation (for not much money) to aquaint myself with his work. It is an album I return to often, the voice, songwriting and musicianship won me over on first play.

Great album, but I would add 'One for the Road' too

Yes, saw them a couple of years ago. Very enjoyable.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Due to availability at present, I decided to go with the best of Just For The Moment as my introduction though after first listen just now, I know will not be my last. I really enjoyed this. My goodness, The Poacher and Anymore For Anymore are lovely! The beautiful thing about music is you can catch up, and I'm sure glad to be catching up with Ronnie's stuff now.
