Rod Stewart Smiler 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. 1974's Smiler served as Stewart's fifth solo release in just five years and yet another U.K. No. 1 album. It was also his fourth straight album with a Bob Dylan cover ("Girl From The North Country").
Along with a trio of originals ("Farewell," "Sailor" and "Dixie Toot"), Rod offers up archetypal performances of material from Chuck Berry ("Sweet Little Rock 'n' Roller"), buddy Elton John (""Let Me Be Your Car"), Sam Cooke (“Bring It On Home to Me/You Send Me”), Carole King ("(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Man") and Paul McCartney ("Mine for Me").
