Ron Wood brought the ‘70s to a close with his third solo album, Gimme Some Neck. Leave it to Wood to assemble another top-tier cast of collaborators. All of the Rolling Stones are onboard (save for Bill Wyman), in addition to Dave Mason, Jim Keltner, Mick Fleetwood, and even R&B iconoclast Swamp Dogg. Even Bob Dylan contributes by way of "Seven Days," on which Wood channels Dylan's lusty wheeze with uncanny precision.

Gimme Some Neck is bookended by two glorious rave-ups -"Worry No More" and "Don't Worry" — rooted in the rhythm & blues and early rock 'n' roll of Chess Records, Wood's (and Richards') first love. However, Wood's persona is felt most strongly on "Lost and Lonely" and "We All Get Old," two bittersweet tunes that show the rakish author turning aged and doubtful, but never bitter. Producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Journey, Cars) gives the album a slightly colder, boxier feel than Wood's previous efforts, but he also allows for "Delia," a wonderful solo acoustic performance that ends far too quickly.
