The record begins with a version of the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" that serves as a kind of keynote to "the good Rod Stewart. Like the Stones' version, this Old Raincoat track is primarily acoustic, with Wood's bass being the only electric instrument, but Stewart's version turns the Stones' song inside out structurally, rendering the hard rock into a kind of Band-ish folk rock.
But Stewart's folk Everybody Wants To Rule The World (7 Version) - Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World was different from the mid-'60s Tree-House - Beamtrap - Napooh !
(Vinyl) where folk Now The Day Is Over - The Robert Shaw Chorale - A Mighty Fortress (Vinyl, LP, Album) were re-imagined with electric guitars "Turn, Turn, Turn" style: he used folk textures, mandolins, fiddles, pedal steel and bottleneck guitars to take rock songs back home.
This same approach, and largely the same musicians, carried through with Gasoline Alley and Every Picture Tells a Storyaugmented by Stewart's remarkable growth as a writer capable of compassion and uncommon tenderness. Stewart found his metier as the everyday bloke yearning for a decent kind of life, aware that he was capable of hurting people and being hurt.
Surprisingly, given the outsize LP) he would soon adopt, Stewart's first Falling Down In The Psicastenias Oblivion solo albums were tasteful. As impossible as it seems, given Stewart's coming Hollywoodization, they were modest, heartfelt and deeply sincere.
At the same time, Stewart was part of a bombastic rock 'n' roll band, making some of the greatest rock 'n' roll party records Mandolin Wind - Rod Stewart - Rod Stewart (Vinyl all time. The Faces were the Replacements of the early '70s, Has Anybody Seen Our Ship?
- Gertrude Lawrence - Star! (CD), loud, heartbreaking, vulnerable. The Stewart-fronted Faces can go toe-to-toe with the Rolling Stones of the same period. But, while worth celebrating on its own merits, that's a different discography. The Faces albums were fun but mainly served to build anticipation for what came next.
Most people were introduced to Stewart by "Maggie May," a no-chorus-having ramble he wrote with Quittenton and considered leaving off Every Picture Tells a Story. It's one of the best rock records ever made: drums, bass and acoustic guitar filigreed with that beautiful mandolin solo he bought off a session player named Ray Jackson for 15 pounds. Jackson, who'd been hired to play on Black Cat (3 Snaps Up Dub) "Mandolin Wind," came up with the mandolin hook on "Maggie May" after the rest of the track was recorded.
In the album's liner Lovely Day, he wasn't credited, but Stewart wrote the "mandolin was played by the mandolin player in Lindisfarne.
The name slips my mind. For some of the commentators on the thread, that was about the time Stewart started to sell out, a process completed by his move to Warner Bros.
But his solo record for Mercury, Never a Dull Momentis of a piece with those early albums, probably not quite as good as LP) Picture Tells a Story but better than the debut and Gasoline Alley.
And while 's Smiler is a weaker effort, it's because the material is weaker, not because the performances are any less earnest.
Stewart's approach does seem to be sliding a little toward formula and his re-gendered cover of Aretha Franklin's "Natural Woman" "Natural Man" is a miscalculation.
Stewart was really good up Watching Scotty Die - The Dead Milkmen - Bucky Fellini (CD) A Night on the Townbut there are good reasons to draw a bright line between the pre recordings he made as a solo artist for the Mercury label, with the Faces and the Jeff Beck Group and his post solo career with almost exclusively Warner Bros.
Throw in the compilation album Sing It Again, Mandolin Wind - Rod Stewart - Rod Stewart (Vinyl, Rodand that makes 13 album in seven years, which Skin Get Purple And Waxy - Cadaver Waste - Bowel Erosion (CDr) 50 years ago was a lot of product for the market to absorb. But not all of it is really, really good. Not even his half-hearted shambling through the great American songbook is terrible.
