my favorite album of his ( and I wore out several copies) was Gasoline Alley
Yes, there's a thing said about Rod. If he'd had drank himself to death in the early 70's he'd be remembered along with Steve Marriot as one of England's greatest Rn'B singers. Sadly, he turned into a gigantic p*ick and blew it.
Actually, I still love his stuff. He can do no wrong by me.
This thread was prompted by me having a discussion with a friend who knows a bit of Faces stuff and the Rod disco sex symbol stuff.I suggested he check out Rods first three records in particular plus his stuff with Beck, because it’s freaking awesome. He has a whole new appreciation of Stewart now.
Handbags And Gladrags from Rod's first album is one of my all-time favorites.
I'm a big fan of The Faces when Rod and Ronnie Wood hooked up with the remaining Small Faces.
I've always loved Rod, but in a lot of circles where people only know the disco stuff, that's not cool to say.
Great to hear from some real fans.
"Sing It Again Rod" is probably my favorite, but there's lots to choose from.
If you consider his career up to 73 there’s the two Beck albums, 4 solo records and 4 Faces records. All of the are absolutely fantastic records. That’s a heckuva run.
I saw him in the '70s when he was wearing those striped pajamas at every show. Ron Wood and Jesse Ed Davis on guitars. Really great show!
and he builds a great structure...
hers a treat for you
And I still listen to Every Picture almost weekly.
I've never understood his claim to be Scottish either. He was born in Highgate, North London.
the only thing negative i can say about him is I dispise "Do you think I'm Sexy ?"
except for this version
There's a box set from Mercury of his early stuff that's worth looking for, if it's still available.
I believe his father was half Scottish IIRC. He mentioned it in his bio.
The RevCo version Is the best cover.
This one? Excellent collection of his first solo albums!
How could someone so in-tune with such great music (soul, r&b, folk, country & rock all blended so perfectly) lose it all and become such a ....?
And went to the same secondary (high) school as Ray and Dave Davies, which is called Fortismere now and is really hard to get children into--you have to live very near to it. I think Rod was captain of the football (soccer) team there as well.
Everyone knows he was born in Gasoline Alley . . . wherever that is.
I'm a huge Stewarty fan. Love all the Faces stuff with Ronnie Wood. He made some truly great music. I highly recommend the live Faces album "Coast to Coast". Ronnie Lane had left by that time, but it is Rod at his zenith.
All are covers, but Rod is a great stylist, so it's fine.
