Just For A Moment: Music 1973-1997 is a six-CD box set that focuses on the solo career of Faces/Small Faces legend Ronnie Lane. Lane is one of the finest songwriters the UK has produced. He created a sound that was unique in British music – a style that leaned heavily on an array of influences particularly folk, country music and later R’n’B. This is the first time that a fully comprehensive look at Ronnie’s post-Faces career has been undertaken.

The box includes Ronnie’s four solo albums – Anymore For Anymore (1974), Ronnie Lane’s Slim Chance (1975), One For The Road (1976) and See Me (1979). Each of these four CDs have bonus tracks including singles, B-sides, alternates and tracks from Ronnie’s Mahoney’s Last Stand album with Ron Wood and Rough Mix with Pete Townshend. CD 5 features highlights from a Rockpalast concert along with various sessions and rarities, while the final disc offers more rare and unheard material focusing on Ronnie’s time in the US, with live highlights and studio tracks never previously released.

The set is curated by longtime musical associate of Ronnie’s, Charlie Hart, and sleeve notes are in three parts, handled by a trio of writers: Paolo Hewitt, Kris Needs and Kent Benjamin. Additionally, it comes with a book of Ronnie’s lyrics and an A2 fold-out poster.

As Pete Townshend surmises, “Here, in these songs, collected with such love and care, he is found again. Probably at the height of his rebellious and chaotic powers, where music had to be immediate and uplifting, or else heart-breaking – but always real.”
