A new soundtrack devoted to the life and legacy of rock hero Mick Ronson. Ronno’s unparalleled credentials as a solo artist, supporting guitarist and producer alongside the likes of David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter, Elton John and Queen shines bight in this new 14-track collection. First official career encompassing compilation for the guitar virtuoso. As well as key tracks from Ronson’s solo records, the compilation includes material from his key collaborations with David Bowie, Elton John, Ian Hunter, Queen and Michael Chapman. Also includes a previously unreleased cover version of This Is For You by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott. The track originally appeared on Ronson’s 1975 solo album Play Don’t Worry and has been reappraised here by his long-time friend and collaborator. Rounding out the tracklist is a piano tribute to Mick Ronson from David Bowie’s piano-man and band alumni Mike Garson.
