"Troublemaker" is the debut album from former
Small Facesand Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan, released in 1979 on Mercury Records. Backed by a core group of Johnny Lee Schell(guitar and vocals), Paul Stallworth(bass) and Jim Keltner(drums), McLagan's rough-hewed voice and keyboards along with the party atmosphere permeating throughout the album - especially on the lead-off "La De Da" and Schell's donated "Little Troublemaker" - make the album a late sequel to Ron Wood's 1974 debut, " I've Got My Own Album to Do", which had featured McLagan as core keyboardist. In the period "Troublemaker" was recorded, McLagan toured with The New Barbarians, and the other members of that band - Wood, Keith Richards, Bobby Keys, Stanley Clarkeand Zigaboo Modeliste- are all featured on the reggaenumber "Truly".
The album, combined with McLagan's 1985
extended play" Last Chance to Dance" and some bonus tracks, has been re-issued under the title "Here Comes Trouble" on the Maniac Records label.
