I never was into "glam," being southern/redneck/homophobic, your choice. So I had to be literally restrained in the fall of 1972 to listen to "Ziggy Stardust." And still, to this day, all I could/can think is "WHO'S PLAYING THAT GUITAR?" OK, I've been obsequious about Ronno in my review of his Memorial set (GET THAT if you don't own it!) And I have to say, Mick had a lot of 'nads to produce/perform a work like "Heaven & Hull" while he was in his final illness. You've read the other reviews: "intense version of Like A Rolling Stone with Bowie"...Chrissie Hynde...Mellonhead...and Ronno's final live performance at the Freddie Mercury concert of "All the Young Dudes" with both Ian Hunter and David Bowie. But for my money, this CD's shining moment is the transcendant track,"Colour Me," which affects me - to TEARS - on two levels: the initial level, of course, is the astounding guitar. Indeed, if you listen closely, you can hear Bowie murmer "play that guitar" during the second lead break. On another level, when I'm concentrating on the words, it brings to mind the inevitibility of mortality. I asked a doctor friend of mind what was so..."important" about "color" that prompted Mick to write, perhaps, the strongest song in the CD, and I was told that "color therapy" is an "alternative treatment" for cancer. Which explains, "color me...a dangerous magenta," et al. But for me, the price of the CD is justified for that one line, "...colour me...and as I'm floating thru space/you'll see a smile on my face." Nothing else need be said. RIP, Mick.

everything in life is temporary, including life. mick ronson's life ended too early, but he did leave behind many musical masterpieces, "heaven and hull" being one of them. his guitar playing remained raw and edgy, as evidenced in the explosive "color me", "don't look down", and "life's a river" to name but a few tracks from his last studio release. after listening to this i can't help but always ask, what if. it's like when tommy bolin released "private eyes" and then died within six months. you were left wanting more and wondering what if. mick's guitar is silent now, but thankfully we have his swan song preserved for all that have the ability to listen and the desire to hear one of the very best guitarists of all time. his gorgeous music can be heard from "heaven and hull".

Mick Ronson was a great guitar player who never really got the recognition he deserved. He never showed alot of flash in his playing, which is why he didn't reach the heights of some of those other guitar heroes of the 70's. But this guy was on the most wanted list when it came to being a guitar player/producer for hire. He propelled David Bowie to super-stardom during his 1972-74 Ziggy Stardust days. He produced Lou Reed's comeback album. He was a member of Bob Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue. And he collaberated with Mott The Hoople and was Ian Hunter's guitar player for years. Some of these friends he helped along the way, he gathered for this all-star solo release, which turned out to be his own posthumous tribute album, which was released a year after his death. Special guests on here that do most of the vocal chores are David Bowie, who does "Like A Rolling Stone". Chrissie Hynde, who does a nice vocal duet with Ronson on "Trouble With Me". John Mellencamp, vocals on "Life's a River". Joe Elliott from Def Leppard, who had a big part in making this album happen, does the vocals on the great opening tune "Don't Look Down". And his longtime friend Ian Hunter, who does vocals on a little more rocked up version of the classic "All The Young Dudes". Ronson shows some of his best fretwork on the rockin' "Colour Me", and the beautiful instrumental "Midnight Love". Except for the first cut "Don't Look Back", there's nothing here that absolutely knocked my socks off. But it's still a good solid effort that I liked better than his 2 mid-seventies albums that were critically praised, but sounded like they were a little bit too much on the David Bowie glam rock side for my taste. Heaven and Hull is a good addition to the Ronson catalogue.

Well the lead off track "Don't Look Down" is very cool because it rocks hard and rides free thanks to Joe Elliott who seems to have helped give the music a modern edge. Ian Hunter/Elliott on "Take A Long Line" thunders with rage and anger!

Hyde from the Pretenders is great as well. BUY THIS ALBUM!!

Before buying "Heaven and Hull," I knew little about Mott the Hoople, and even less about the band's later-added guitarist, Mick Ronson. In fact, the main reason I picked up this album in the first place was because Joe Elliott of Def Leppard contributed vocals and played a big part in getting it recorded. There are several other worthy artists who make "Heaven and Hull" special: Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, John Mellencamp and David Bowie to name a few. This album was dedicated to Ronson, who died of cancer and seemed to have many dear friends in the rock `n' roll world who were intent on carrying on his name.

I like the workmanlike, old-fashioned feel to these songs that contains elements of both sturdy rock and roll and a touch of glam to give them sparkle. Of the ten tunes, Ronson had a hand in writing six of them. One of the best songs on the CD is the first one, "Don't Look Down," where Elliott's double-tracked vocals are refreshingly understated. Right off the bat one gets a sense of Ronson's fluid, shimmering guitar playing that seems to melt off his ax like butter. Ronson was also a good singer, and his vocals are paired well with Sham Morris, Hynde and Mellencamp on three different songs. Hynde offers her tough-as-nails voice on the bluesy, down-to-earth song "Trouble With Me," while Mellencamp's equally hardy vocals help qualify the inspirational rocker "Life's a River" as one of the best tunes on the CD. Another cool tune is the gritty but poppy "Colour Me," where Elliott and Bowie each lend their talented background vocals. Toward the end of the CD, "Take a Long Line," featuring gritty vocals by Elliott, Ian Hunter and Ronson, takes the award for the CD's most rollicking, rocking tune.
