Just Like This

Just Like This is a studio album of previously unreleased material recorded in November and December 1976 by Mick Ronson.[1] It was supposed to become Ronson's third solo album after Slaughter on 10th Avenue (1974) and Play Don't Worry (1975), but due to low selling amounts of these albums, record company RCA refused to release this third album in 1977.[citation needed]

Just Like This was finally released six years after Ronson's death (1993), on 15 March 1999, by New Millennium Music (Burning Airlines label) in a limited amount. A rare extra limited amount has an extra bonus CD with seven demos and two outtakes.[2] The release was backed by Mick Ronson's widow Suzanne Ronson.[citation needed]

Two songs from the album, "I'd Give Anything to See You" and "Hard Life" were included in the 2017 feature-length biographical documentary, and compilation Soundtrack,[3] entitled Beside Bowie: the Mick Ronson Story.[4]
