Ronson was much, much more than just Ziggy’s guitarist. A natural and bold musician, his contribution to rock throughout the Seventies and onwards is only recently being fully acknowledged, the film and its diverse, dynamic soundtrack playing a major part in this overdue reappraisal!

The Soundtrack -

    • 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 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’ & has been reappraised here by his long-time friend & collaborator.
    • Rounding out the tracklist is a piano tribute to Mick Ronson from David Bowie’s piano-man & band alumni Mike Garson.
