Ron Wood – I’ve Got My Own Album To Do

      ‘I’ve Got My Own Album To Do’ is the first solo album by Ron Wood, released in September 1974. An all-star project recorded outside of his activities with the Faces, the title was a dig at Rod Stewart, who appeared to be more committed to his solo career than to working with the Faces. Wood has said that the album title originated from contributors such as George Harrison and Mick Jagger ‘nagging me to let them go home’ and finish their own projects. During this period, Wood assisted Jagger in writing and recording the Rolling Stones’ 1974 single ‘It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll’, while Jagger reciprocated by helping Wood with this album’s opening track, ‘I Can Feel the Fire’. Keith Richards was another participant at the sessions, in addition to performing concerts in London with Wood to promote the release. Wood’s collaboration with Harrison, ‘Far East Man’, was re-recorded by Harrison and appeared on the former Beatle’s ‘Dark Horse’ album three months after the release of ‘I’ve Got My Own Album To Do’. Other musicians on the record include Rod Stewart, fellow Faces Ian McLagan and Kenny Jones, Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones, and the all-American rhythm section of Willie Weeks and Andy Newmark.
