On a break from the Rolling Stones, Ron Wood worked on a solo album in 1992, recording “Slide on This” and releasing the album in September of 1992. The album was recorded in Dublin, Ireland where Wood was living at the time. Recording was done in both Ron Woods home in St. Kildare Ireland, and Windmill Lane Recording Studios in Dublin. Ron Wood took advantage of his Dublin location to invite some locals to play on tracks, including U2’s The Edge, and the Hothouse Flowers. The album was Ron Wood’s first solo project in twelve years. The first single from the album, “Show Me” was released in advance of the album, and featured The Edge performing additional guitars, and Joe Elliott of Def Leppard providing additional vocals. Drumming on the track was done by Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones. This was one of three tracks from the album that The Edge was involved with. He was not involved with the b-side of the single “Breathe on Me”.
This single was released in a digipack with artwork by Ron Wood on the cover. The main commercial release featured a white cover, with a self portrait of Ron Wood on the cover with his name and the single title in gold. In the UK a very limited, version of this single was released, also in digipack, but with a black background with the self portrait of Ron Wood done in gold. The sleeve of this limited release was tied closed by using a black ribbon. The digipack contained four numbered and personally autographed prints. This limited pressing was limited to 600 copies. The track listing was the same.
The version of “Show Me” available on the CD single is the same version that is used on the album, with the exact running time.
