“Rod Stewart – Rarities” out in September

Written by admin on August 13, 2013 – 8:40 pm -

A new two-CD collection titled “Rod Stewart – Rarities” features some great early material recorded during Stewart’s early solo career with Mercury Records.

“Rod Stewart – Rarities” includes outtakes, alternate versions, B-sides, live performances, and cover versions of songs by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and The Who.

Rod Stewart - Rarities

This is a fine collection, but many big fans of Rod will have the bulk of the material already as tracks 3-9 on Disc 1 and 5-9 on Disc 2 were previously released on the 2009 4-CD “The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998” box set, and most of the rest appeared on 2002’s “Reason To Believe: The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings”. Collectors might be enticed by the promise of previously unreleased BBC Radio 1 performances of “Country Comforts” and “Maggie May,” although the latter did actually debut on the Faces’ 4-CD box set “Five Guys Walk Into a Bar” in 2004.
