Released one full year after Slaughter on 10th Avenue, Mick Ronson 's second solo album, Play Don't Worry, was partially recorded during his brief tenure with Mott the Hoopleand it is no coincidence that the finished item reflected only half of what was really intended.
Pair it with bandmate Ian Hunter 's own eponymous solo debut, however, and it is not only Play Dont Worry - Mick Ronson - Play Dont Worry duo's own entwined future which spreads out before you, it is also an indication of just how powerful Mott could have been if that combination of players had worked out. Ronson 's epic recounting of the Pure Prairie League 's "Angel 9" was already part of Mott 's live set when they split; so was Hunter 's "Lounge Lizard" from his solo setand live recordings from the first Hunter - Ronson tour, promoting both Play Don't Worry and Ian Hunter.
Those two albums blend with one another seamlessly, to the point that only occasionally, today, do either of them actually live up to either of their makers' reputations. Play Don't Worry certainly has its highlights, however. But elsewhere, Ronson 's own dislike of the solo game shows through, and only gets louder once the album ends and the bonus tracks appended to the reissue kick in.
Only two of those tracks date from the Play Don't Worry sessions themselves: a dense and despairing version of Annette Peacock 's "Seven Days," and a lifeless alternate take on the regular album's closing "Woman.
They are interesting for a Play Dont Worry - Mick Ronson - Play Dont Worry rendition of Bowie 's "Soul Love," and a studio version of the coincidentally but otherwise utterly un- Bowie related titled "Is There Life on Mars? But compared to what Ronson had long since shown himself capable of doing, they are weary and weak, and compared to the live cuts appended to the similarly reissued Slaughter on 10th Avenue all taken from the still unreleased live album taped at his first solo London gigthey hardly bear repeated plays.
