Mark Ronson Adds Simon to his Record Collection!

September is winding to an end, and one thing I tend to remember about this month is that a few years back, I went to go see Mark Ronson & The Business Int’l at Club Nokia in LA. It was on this day in 2010 that the album Record Collection, which featured Simon LeBon (on the song of the same name), was released.

At the time, Duran Duran had not yet released All You Need is Now, and fans were chomping at the bit for any piece of new music they could get their hands on. They weren’t alone, as I listened to Record Collection over and over, and yes—even the song was on repeat.

Ronson’s show at Club Nokia was great. It was the first time I’d ever seen Mark live, and I also got to see MNDR that night as well. Who knew that several years later, I’d see her again when she stood in for Nick Rhodes and performed with Duran Duran?!

BTW – I completely screwed up yesterday’s blog, and I apologize for that. I have no excuse, other than I thought I was reading dates for September on my calendar, and instead, I was knee-deep in August and didn’t even notice. I’ll try to be more careful.

One thought on “Mark Ronson Adds Simon to his Record Collection!”

  1. I can remember this date very well.
    Mark really is one of their best producers, the one guy who is able to be a fan and a lucid, neutral referree in the Studio, at the same time.
    Record Collection was one of my “two weeks albums” in that period: to recall you my 2 weeks albums are the ones I keep playing on my mp man for two weeks consecutively, to then making a review (on my DD TV Page and on Twitter, … using 140 characters, Yay!). I loved that album, it sounded funny, dance-y, rap-y
