Overview:
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!

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.
Rounding out the tracklist is a piano tribute to Mick Ronson from David Bowie’s piano-man & band alumni Mike Garson.
The soundtrack is available on CD & LP, includes extensive essay & liner notes.
Exclusive limited edition coloured vinyl pressing coming as a D2C & Retail exclusive.
The Film -

Also coming June 8th, the home-video DVD & Blu-Ray release of the acclaimed documentary film BESIDE BOWIE: THE MICK RONSON STORY from producer/director Jon Brewer.
Music icon David Bowie narrates this unprecedented celebration of the life and works of guitar virtuoso Mick Ronson - a rock hero virtually unknown despite his direct contribution and involvement in countless compositions, lyrics and recordings that changed the face of music forever.
His humble beginnings in Hull, England underpinned the values and modest, unpretentious personality of Mick Ronson, who worked with the city's council while he pursued his craft with consummate dedication. Soon word of his talent reached David Bowie, who grabbed at the chance to work with Ronson, in what would become a career-long association, alongside collaborations with other greats such as Bob Dylan, Ian Hunter, Lulu and Lou Reed.
Sadly in 1993, while working on a solo album, Ronson passed away before receiving the recognition he so richly deserved or before taking that final bow. Now, with unprecedented access to archival backstage footage - never before released - and iconic imagery from superstar photographer Mick Rock, this fascinating and at times controversial special reveals the ultimate authentic chronicle of the career of a cornerstone of rock.
The DVD & Blu-Ray release of the documentary includes exclusive bonus material.
The DVD & Blu-Ray release is cleared for UMG World ex. US & Canada.
The broadcast & theatrical rights are being worked externally of UMG, with Amazon Prime & Netflix deals already secured.
