Rod Stewart An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down on 180g LP
With his soulful and singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has paved one of the most iconic and successful musical careers of all time. From his time in the Jeff Beck Group to The Faces to his ever evolving solo career, the two time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has been at music's pinnacle for more than five decades!
The majority of Stewart's solo debut was recorded during a white hot time of his blossoming career when he was still officially a member of the Jeff Beck Group and was on the brink of joining The Faces. It was issued in the U.S. at the end of 1969 under the title The Rod Stewart Album and in the U.K. in early-1970 as An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down.
The auspicious 8-track offering features all the signposts of a vital artist in the making. Successfully incorporating elements of folk, blues and rock & roll with aplomb, Rod tackles the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man," Mike D'Abo's "Handbags And Gladrags," Ewan MacColl's "Dirty Old Town" and shows off his songwriting acumen to boot with the four outstanding originals "Blind Prayer," "An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down," "I Wouldn't Ever Change a Thing" and "Cindy's Lament."
