Ron Wood & Ronnie Lane
Mahoney’s Last Stand was Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane’s soundtrack to the film of the same name. Though the film and its soundtrack were produced in 1972–Wood and Lane cut the tracks in between sessions for Ooh La La–neither production saw the light of day until 1976. The film was a flop but the star power of the soundtrack have afforded it a cult following in the decades since. The sessions were produced by Glyn Johns and feature Pete Townshend on guitar and electronics, plus session bassist/ex-Blind Faith member Ric Grech, fellow Faces Ian MacLagan and Kenney Jones, as well as Rolling Stones friends Ian Stewart, Bobby Keys, and Jim Price. The result was a collection of songs that are at times rocking and funky and at others distinctly rural. While this missing piece in Wood and Lane’s careers has appeared a few times on CD over the years, Real Gone’s version marks its first-ever U.S. vinyl reissue. The title will be limited to 700 copies and will be pressed on green vinyl.
