Rod Stewart Gasoline Alley 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!
No matter what era or phase of Rod Stewart you prefer, nearly everyone is unanimous in choosing the artist’s early 1970s output as his very finest. Proof comes courtesy of 1970's Gasoline Alley, his second solo outing following his 1969 debut. Featuring a rootsy, folk-blues-leaning style, steeped in traditional soul and R&B, Stewart's blend of playful swagger and modest introspection provided a complementary contrast to the raw, boozy rock ’n’ roll that he was recording in his parallel career as frontman of the seminal U.K. quintet Faces.
Rod was on a serious roll here and his one of a kind raspy voice absolutely shines and shimmers on Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now," Bob Dylan’s “Only a Hobo,” the Small Faces' "My Way of Giving" and Elton John's "Country Comfort," not to mention a trio of excellent originals of his own with "Gasoline Alley," "Jo's Lament" and "You're My Girl."
