Category Archives: Ronnie Lane Memorial Concert
…the many musical highlights aside, what delights here most is the warm vibe, for Lane was obviously a man who was much loved by his former colleagues as well as someone who was a hero for so many in the audience.
Blues In Britain (October 2014)
Ronnie Lane was truly one of rock’s unsung heroes. This production isn’t about flashy photography and over the top stage shows, it’s just about the man and his music. One For The Road is a fitting tribute to someone whose life was cut far too short. Released on Angel Air Records.
Sea Of Tranquility (September 2014)
This concert allowed old rockers and earnest imitators to belt out 40 or so of the Faces man’s most memorable tunes. Lane’s band, Slim Chance, reconvened for the occasion, and provide fine backing for some of the choicest moments – Pete Townshend doing “Stone” and Paul Weller’s lovely “The Poacher”…
Uncut Magazine (September 2014)
A fitting salute to a much-loved man, and a powerful reminder of the extraordinary music he left behind.
Record Collector Magazine (September 2014)
Pete Townshend and Paul Weller seized possession, by their very presence, of a good-natured capacity crowd that, fading into the Kensington twilight afterwards, agreed generally that it had participated in one of the ‘greatest nights anyone could ever remember’.
R2 Magazine (September 2014)
This DVD is a wonderful way to remember a great evening at the Royal Albert Hall and a fitting souvenir for those who were there. Those who could not make it will enjoy hearing and see the concert for the first time. Great fun. Let’s do it all again one day.
Making Time (August 2014)
A memorial concert worthy of Ronnie Lane for sure, and expertly captured on this DVD.
Music-News (August 2014)
Ten years on, a very well-filmed DVD running for more than three hours ensures the concert’s standing as both a raucous piece of entertainment and a genuinely affectionate memorial event…
The Beat Magazine (August 2014)
Ronnie Wood, Pete Townshend, Paul Weller and sixties icons Steve Ellis and Chris Farlowe all played their part in the success of a lengthy set as they helped to breathe new life into memorable Lane creations such as ‘Itchycoo Park’, ‘How Come’ and the beguilingly bucolic ‘The Poacher’.
