(1975)

I've Got My Own Album to Do is the first solo album of Ronnie Wood. It reached number 27 on UK's New Musical Express chart. The title was a dig at Rod Stewart as he was more focused with his solo albums than with The Faces. The album title originated from contributors such as George Harrison and Mick Jagger "nagging me to let them go home" and work on their own projects. Wood assisted Jagger in writing and recording the Rolling Stones' 1974 single "It's Only Rock 'n Roll" during this period, while Jagger helped Wood with the album's opening track, "I Can Feel The Fire". The Faces worked "I Can Feel The Fire" and "Take A Look At The Guy" into their setlists for a 1974 UK tour and two US tours of 1975, while Wood has performed "I Can Feel The Fire", "Far East Man", "Mystifies Me" and "Am I Grooving You" in his solo shows between 1979-2012.
