Editorial Reviews

Mick Ronson is best known for his work with David Bowie as one of The Spiders from Mars. He can be heard on legendary albums like The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and Aladdin Sane. He was also a busy session musician who worked with artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison & Morrissey. In 1974, one year after leaving Bowie's entourage, Ronson released his solo debut album Slaughter On 10th Avenue. It features his version of Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender", two tracks written by David Bowie as well as Ronson's most famous solo track "Only After Dark".

The music is hard to describe.

All in all, I would recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of rock and roll and definitely is a must have for any fan of Mick Ronson.

A couple of good Bowie-esque tunes on side one but I find Love me Tender to be embarassing.

I give this album a qualified 5 stars simply because of the weakness of side one. However side 2 is another story. This absolutely blows the doors off anything else by this flamboyant 'glam' guitarist. From I'm the One,,,Pleasure Man/Hey Ma get Papa to Slaughter on 10th Ave. this one cooks. With help from Brit stalwarts this side slides from one tune into the next seemlessly and after 20 minutes (+/-) you are left breathless and wanting more. Not just guitar either - great piano, sax and drums-almost free-form jazz-rock fusion. Just play this side over and over. I have this since it's release and still play it regularily. A couple of good Bowie-esque tunes on side one but I find Love me Tender to be embarassing.

I still have the plastic version of mick ronson talking about this album with love me tender and Slaughter on it. it came in a magazine circus or crawdaddy. But the album itself i used to listen to doing homework. Amazing stuff. My mom loved the slaughter on 10th ave song which i had no idea was a movie. Mick is sorely missed. So i`m going to download this and next month get his 2nd album in mp 3. i do have Heaven and Hull.

The sonic excellence, a few pretty strong songs, Mick's boffo guitar stylings, and his astonishingly Bowie-like vocals (hey, the guy sang back-up for him for some five years, whatt'ya expect) keep this mid-seventies release from being a 'guitar player goes it his own' blemish on the long unappreciated guitarist. Still, it's easy to see why Ronson's solo career didn't take off. A few songs are ridiculous in the glam-vein, and the superfluous bonus-tracks are just that. I believe fans of 'Transformer', as well as Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust' and his early days might interested in hearing this long-buried album from this extremely talented legend.

I have been looking for a long time for this CD, Mick Ronson's first solo effort. I owned it years ago on vinyl but wanted it on disc to round out my collection. It is an excellent album which really showcases Micks superb guitar work, especially on songs such as the title song. It also shows of Micks vocals which aren't half bad. He never got a chance to prove he could sing when playing with Bowie. All in all, I would recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of rock and roll and definitely is a must have for any fan of Mick Ronson. Leave it to Amazon to once again come through with a hard to find title.

An amazing, odd, over-produced masterpiece. The music is hard to describe. The sound is very Aladin Sane era Bowie, but at the same time, it's not like Bowie at all. Mick Ronson had a raw erotic power that was missing from Bowie's work. The production has a very grandious sound and god-knows what all the fuss really is about when you actually listen to the lyrics. But it works and it is a thrilling and unique work, unlike anything else I've ever heard.

This album is just amazing from the beggining to the end and have very great covers like "Love me tender" of Elvis Presley and original like "Growing up and im fine" godddd gorgeus song or "Only after dark", with a hard riff and great arrangements. Honestly if you are a fan of nice music, just buy it you'll not feel disapointed.

this is the very best of the very best.. inspiring to say the least, depressing because he's not around to make more. Mick produced L.A. roc en espanol band Los Illegals (A&M Records) in the early '80's, pretty visionary.. an absolute masterpiece: should be played over and over.

Mick is my guitar hero. Plain and simple. At the time, Bowie had disbanded the Spiders (see Ziggy the Movie) and things were in flux. Mainman and Tony DeFries wanted to milk the cash cow of Bowie to the ummphh degree, hence the first solo record for Mick.

Sure things were rushed to get this out but some of the songs are KILLER.

The standout track is obviously Slaughter on 10th Ave. An instrumental of a song from a bad 50's movie. Remember that the backing musicians were the Spiders except for Woody Woodmansey, who was replaced by Aynsley Dunbar!!

To hear Mike Garson do his jazz/rock tingling on the ivories in this song is to die for.

Bowie provided Mick with the song 'Growing Up and I'm Fine' as a final farwell.

This song is as out of place on this record as 'All The Young Dudes" is on Mott The Hoople's record of the same name---all production----granted it's soooooooo Bowie and worth the price of admission, but it's not what the album is.

Mick was in charge of everything--production, arranging and conducting. He was IT. Everything was on his shoulders and he basically pulled it off. Not the greatest of albums like Ziggy, but you have to take everything into consideration. 'Pleasure../Hey Ma..' is vintage Mick making that Gibson guitar talk in the solo slot.

Love Me Tender is better live--a little forced on the studio version

All in all, a GREAT LP/CD/CS

FYI- Mick is uncredited on a John Mellencamp LP and single that was was a HUGE hit---guess what it is!!
