Release date 16th July 2021
Ronnie Lane’s classic 1974 album ‘Anymore For Anymore’ available on vinyl for the first time in more than 30 years.
‘Anymore For Anymore’ has been newly mastered at Abbey Road Studios, pressed on 180gm vinyl and is housed in a sleeve reproducing the original distinctive artwork. A new inner sleeve features rare photos and the lyrics to Ronnie’s original songs and the package includes a reproduction of the original album promo poster. It also comes with a Sound of Vinyl Download code.
Originally released in July 1974, ‘Anymore For Anymore’ was Ronnie’s debut solo album following his departure from The Faces.
Recorded at his farm in Wales, ‘Anymore For Anymore’ saw Ronnie’s music adopt a more pastoral tone, incorporating elements of folk and country music. The band Slim Chance included contributions from Scottish duo Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle, bass player Steve Bingham (The Foundations, Colin Blunstone) and drummer Bruce Rowland (Joe Cocker, Fairport Convention).
‘Anymore For Anymore’ reached No. 48 on the UK album chart, while single ‘The Poacher’ peaked at No. 36. The single might have fared better if a planned appearance on Top of the Pops hadn’t been cancelled due to a strike by the cameraman’s union. Despite the modest chart position, the album has grown in stature since release. Widely considered his best solo outing,Tracklist
