12 Songs, 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With the ‘80s finally over, it was as if a stylistic fog suddenly lifted. While Rod Stewart wasn’t about to return to the raw bleeding guitars and organs of his earliest work in the ‘70s, he did begin to pay more attention to the songs he was writing and interpreting. The sound is similarly charged, still instilled with certain smooth touches but not without its necessary grit. “Rebel Heart” features true aggression with its electric guitars. “Rhythm of My Heart” rolls with an extra skip in its step. Robbie Robertson’s “Broken Arrow” takes on a harrowing, lonesome vibe. Van Morrison’s “Have I Told You Lately” lights the necessary romantic candles. ”The Motown Song” pushes all the right nostalgic buttons to become a hit single. Stewart’s duet with Tina Turner for “It Takes Two” experiences a sweet synergy as their blessed voices intertwine. “No Holding Back” and album closer “If Only” are worthy ballads that highlight Stewart’s still natural wonder of a voice after all the years.

Jeff Porcaro All around drummer and percussionist

When it comes to laying down a great groove on the drums. Jeff Porcaro knows what to use He utilizes everything.I especially like his percussion sounds on the song Africa by Toto. Kind of primitive and tribal.It's like a hybrid a cross between maybe African and Brazilian.It is so interesting to hear all the different kinds of rhythms from those countries. As usual whatever he did was nothing short of superb technique and musical virtuosity.So that's why so many different musicians and singers wanted him as their session drummer.He is without a doubt my favorite and still the best.
