Ian "Mac" McLaglan & the Bump Band: Best of British (2003)

(As published in the Times of Acadiana ... )

Ian “Mac” McLagan and the Bump Band
Best of British

One could be forgiven at this late date for not expecting too much from this ex-Face keyboardist and Stones sideman, but, really, this is the least mossy-sounding bit of Stonesiness to roll down in longer than most of us who can remember would like to. Ron Wood guests twice and Billy Bragg once, but it’s McLagan’s writing and singing--both looser and funnier than the recent work of his legendary mates--that put this one over, with “She Stole It!” and “This Time” bordering on vintage. Rating: Four ooh-la-la’s out of five.
