Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance
Reviewed by - Chris Ingram in Mojo Magazine, August 1996 (Issue #33)

This 1975 album epitomises Lane's uniquely British hobo-billy blend of folk, rock and country and Cajun drinking songs. Mandolins, accordions, violins and barrelhouse piano happily collide, sounding like they were all thrown together on a couple of glorious, tipsy afternoons. But, what an extraordinary voice Lane had. Like a melodious wino doing a whimsical Dylan, when he sings "I got silver in the stars/and gold in that morning sun", from his gorgeous reading of Country Boy, he's a wise simpleton, moving and entirely credible.
