..., Rod - Atlantic Crossing None of Rod Stewart’s many self re-inventions has been half-hearted, least of all the full-fledged adoption of the full-on electric rock of 1975’s Atlantic Crossing . This album saw Stewart moving past the folk and blues of some of his past work, trading it in for some brash saxophones and jumpy R&B-tinged rhythms. The transition at the heart of Atlantic Crossing was a radical musical departure. ‘Three Time Loser’ was a slick rock number, filled with ripping leads, saxophones, and explicit sexual subject matter. From the reggae...

..., Rod - Gasoline Alley Joined in the studio by drinking buddies and Faces members, Rod Stewart made this breakout hit album. The marriage of bottleneck guitar and mandolin, abundant barrelhouse piano and passionate rasp were the beginnings of an identifiable sound associated with Stewart up through the mid-70s. After covering the Stones, Ewan McColl and Mike D’Abo on his debut album, he included tunes by Dylan (‘Only A Hobo’), Bobby Womack (‘It’s All Over Now’) and Elton John (‘Country Comforts’) for this follow-up. Although songs like the Stewart-penned...

..., Rod - Never A Dull Moment Never A Dull Moment picked up where Every Picture Tells A Story left off... more raucous rock ‘n’ roll with healthy dollops of soul and twang thrown in for good measure. Always looking for a good songwriter to cover, Stewart’s honourees here included Jimi Hendrix (‘Angel’), Dylan (‘Mama You Been On My Mind’) and personal hero, Sam Cooke (‘Twistin’ The Night Away’.) Sidling up nicely next to these heartfelt interpretations were some of Stewart’s finest original songs. Teaming with spiritual brother Ron Wood, Stewart offered...

..., Rod - Unplugged ... And Seated By the time MTV got around to taping an Unplugged special with Rod Stewart, the singing soccer fanatic had spent most of the 80s and early 90s churning out albums full of glossy pop songs. Unplugged...And Seated found Stewart going back to his earlier material where soul, folk and rock blended together into something special. Stewart made these chestnuts more authentic by reuniting with old mate Ronnie Wood. Backed by a string section, vocalists, and a couple of pianos, Stewart dug deep into his catalogue for...

..., Rod - Every Picture Tells A Story Rod Stewart’s third solo album brought the singer long-awaited commercial success. Its combination of strong, original songs and plum cover versions was finely judged as the artist paid tribute to mentors and declared his own craft. Members of Stewart’s regular group, the Faces, provide intuitive support without the sense of compromise apparent on their own recordings. The singer’s voice was rarely better; his interpretation of the Temptations’ ‘(I Know I’m) Losing You’ brought new dimensions to a Tamla/Motown classic....
