    Rod Stewart could do little wrong for me between 1968 and 1974 - Jeff Beck Group, the Faces and his first five solo albums. These are his first two solo albums from the days when his own songs were very good and was also judicious in his choices when covering the work of others:

    The Rod Stewart Album a.k.a. An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down (1969)
    Gasoline Alley (1970)

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Searching my CD library today I found this CD that I have almost forgotten, and I remembered it contains one of my favorite non-classical songs ever, "Gabriel":

    Yes, a thousand yes. For those who only know his later work, put aside your preconceptions and try these.

    When the present Mrs Below par and I got serious, i.e. we combined our music collections, we only had 4 records in common and 30 years later we still don’t see eye to eye on much more than the greatness of early Rod Stewart!

    Now that the LP is a curiosity of history we have lost the joy of picking one side as our favourite. I can’t say that anyone has ever bettered side two of Every Picture Tells a Story.

    Oh Henry
    Maggie May
    Mandolin Wind
    (I Know) I’m loosing you.
    Reason to Believe

    Enjoy.


    PS when did (brackets) in song titles go out of favour?

    Coryell's 1975 album with three members of Oregon.



    Larry played at a club about a quarter mile from my house last night. It was mostly full band stuff, but he also played his orchestral acoustic guitar rendition of Ravel's Bolero. And they finished off with an interesting take on Spoonful which morphed into Wayne Shorter's Footprints.
