10 Mar 2014 Island/Universal have released a two-disc retrospective of Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance. Titled Ooh La La: An Island Harvest, it includes some live tracks and alternate takes. Also, Slim Chance are re-releasing their own cd, The Show Goes On, with a bonus track, their new take on "Ooh La La", added on. Buy it here.
2 Sep 2011 Details about the new Slim Chance release: Due out September 19th (on the brilliantly conceived Fishpool label), it will be distributed via Cargo to all the download sites you prefer (iTunes, etc). It will be a two-song release featuring "One for the Road" and "Flags and Banners" Links to follow!
2 Sept 2011 We have Slim Chance touring and recording, and we also have Gallagher and Lyle tearing up the terra firma! Oh, and I think those guys in the Faces are doing something, too! The only reason for Ronnie to be angry is he's still playing dead.
