EDITORS’ NOTES

For the sixth album of his songbook era, Rod Stewart softens his trademark rasp while paying tribute to soul music. He lovingly tousles the Sam Cooke hit “Wonderful World” and recasts the Motown snap of “It’s the Same Old Song” as a torchy ache before tapping its party potential. Stewart also teams up with some of the original songwriters (Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson) and turns in silky duets with Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson. He even dabbles in disco with the effervescent “Love Train.”

I just love Rod Stewart. He's like a good wine and only gets better with age. His voice and the arragements are fantastic. This is a great selection to add to any music library.

Rod could sing the yellow pages of the phone book and it would be great. And as others commented, once you see him in concert, you can imagine watching him sing ANY song.

It's too bad that they stopped his kicking soccer balls into the audience (liability issues). Man he could hit the upper seats in a stadium!

Great album! Rainy Night in Georgia is the best!
