Editors’ Notes

The Best of Rod Stewart sums up the first half of Stewart’s ‘70’s output when he was a rough-and-tumble R&B-inspired rock singer. He’d recorded five studio albums and been the lead singer for the Faces over that time (only one track with them is featured here, “Jodie”), wracking up a few key hits (“Maggie May,” “Every Picture Tells A Story”), but mostly making his reputation as one of the finest singers of his generation. This collection featured the first LP appearances of “What’s Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser out of Me),” Goffin and King’s “Oh No Not My Baby,” and his contribution to the rock opera Tommy, Pete Townshend’s “Pinball Wizard.” All sit comfortably aside such stellar company as Mike D’Abo’s “Handbags and Gladrags,” The Rolling Stones’ “Street Fighting Man,” Bobby Womack’s “It’s All Over Now,” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Angel,” tracks that illustrate Stewart’s unparalleled gift for interpretation, as these songs often become his property once he claims it.

Customer Reviews

This is a Great Album

I'm a 27 year old male buying Rod Stewart! What's wrong with that? Nothing if this is the album you get. You get so tired of the "Pop-Star" Rod Stewart that you forget he was a rocker before the 80's. I've heard all the classic rock that I need to hear from the groups everyone's familiar with like Led Zepplin, Rush, the Stones. It's nice to listen to some "new"(for me) classic rock that's just plain great stuff. I love this album.

Over the course of his career, Rod Stewart has had it all. He's been lauded as the finest singer of his generation, he's written several songs that turned into modern standards, he sang with the Faces, who rivaled the Rolling Stones in their prime, he had massive commercial success. Stewart also saw his critical respect slip away during the '80s, when he recorded lightweight pop and although he did record some terrible albums -- and he would admit that freely -- Stewart will always be remembered...
