Biography

“Rarely has a singer had as full and unique a talent as Rod Stewart – a writer who offered profound lyricism and fabulous self-deprecating humor, teller of tall tales and honest heart breaker, he had an unmatched eye for the tiny details around which lives turn, shatter, and reform -- and a voice to make those details indelible. His solo albums were defined by two special ... Read more in Amazon's Rod Stewart Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The fourth Rod Stewart album to contain his trademark acoustic-electric mix of instruments and bluesy vocals, Never a Dull Moment feels anything but formulaic, kicking off with the aw-shucks modesty of "True Blue" and rollicking on through the enduring original "You Wear It Well". Some of the best tunes here are covers--Bob Dylan's searching "Mama You Been on My Mind," a soulful reading of Sam Cooke's "Twistin' the Night Away," and a scorching take on Etta James's "I'd Rather Go Blind"--but, as always, Stewart manages to make them sound of a piece with his own compositions. Unlike the promises proffered by some album titles, Never a Dull Moment (ironic though it was, given the cover painting of a terminally bored Stewart) proved to be dead-on. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars Rod's Finest Hour 27 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Banish the memory of a spandex clad clown strangling 'Do ya think I'm Sexy', obliterate the image of the white tie and tails churning out The Great American Songbook Vol 73 - this is Rod's finest hour, no question. Backed by the sort of ramblin' shamblin' band that brings out the best of him, Rod presides over one of those rare albums where every single track is a winner. True Blue, Los Paraguayos and Italian Girls all possess the trademark feelgood swagger, whilst You Wear It Well carries the singles gold standard with ease. But it's the closers that clinch the deal: a smouldering I'd Rather Go Blind, followed by an incendiary version of Sam Cooke's Twistin' the Night Away, with Rod's raspy vocals duelling to the end with Ronnie Wood's fizzing slide guitar. Some say this album doesn't quite match the excellent Every Picture Tells a Story - they're wrong...

Format:Audio CD
The first vinyl album I ever bought. On holiday at Uncle Albert's, Streatham, London, England. Wearing green cord loons, drinking shandy circa 1971. Uncle Albert would only let me listen to it at half volume on his radiogramme. But it still sounded good. Listening to it 30 years later on my modern hi-fi I can stll remember the excitement it caused way back then. Rod wore big trousers on the cover, looking into the mid-distance and we all wondered where he was going. I love the glumness and self preoccupation in the album. Who hasn't sat back in the evening, bored, or on a rainy afternoon and thought about how things might have been? That's what these tracks are about......Rod looking back at the last few years and ruminating, chewing the fat and thinking; what if? Perhaps different musical styles? (Lost Paraguayos or Italian Girls) Rock and Roll? (I'd Rather go Blind, Twisting the Night Away) A tribute to Jimi Hendrix? (Angel) or Faces inspired tracks? (True Blue and Mama You Bee on my Mind). The single that sold the album is You Wear it Well. The collection is every bit as complicated as the artist, laid down at a crossroads, breaking away from Mod days and becoming a human being in his own right. Carefully chosen musicians, pictured beneath football posts, support Rod's croaky, soulful vocals during a coach trip to different musical styles. For the early seventies the recording wws crystal clear, even on the original vinyl and Rod Stewart was a perfectionist at this time about the sound quality of his albums and running times suffered as a result. This album is an absoloute classic of differnet styles, perfect reproduction and Rod at his brilliant vocal best.....

5.0 out of 5 stars There was a time. . . . . . . . . 24 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
When you are young it is the little things that seem so important and pop music plays such a large role in your life because it provides the soundtrack to your love life, your philosophy and your whole lifestyle.

For many working class youth who wanted a break from dancing but couldn't be arsed with the po-faced head-wanking of the likes of Pink Floyd and ELP, Rod the Mod provided us with everything we could wish for: He wasn't particularly good-looking but he managed to bed all the best looking women. He sometimes sang about a life that was beyond us, but one that we could wish for:

Daddy says he'll buy me car
to drive just as far as I need
He wants me back at any expense
He's got a lot more money than sense
(True Blue)

His singing range was well within the grasp of any of us who could hold a tune and he was a bloke that many hetro young males could actually be in love with without being accused of being gay.

Rod seemed to sum up life for us: Football (when it actually meant something and was not something for middle-class kidults to read about in the Guardian and force themselves to watch boring friendlies on Skysports), girls and money (or lack of). He was one of us: a kid; though his voice sounded as if it knew so much of life.

Rod was one of those who wrote simple lyrics that sounded more profound than they actually were:

She was tall, thin and tarty
and she drove a Maserati
faster than sound
I was heaven bound

(Italian Girls)

He could make other people's songs his own, think Angle. Each Faces period album had a song by Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan and like most Dylan songs they sounded much better when sung by someone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last of the classic quartet 20 Nov 2007
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the peerless 'Every Picture...' album, Rod Stewart perfected his acoustic-based rock style. Here, he uses the same template to much the same effect on some tracks, but 'Never A Dull Moment' goes more electric on other songs. The Faces-like 'True Blue' is one of the electric songs, a pleasing rocker, and opens the album. 'Lost Paraguayos' goes back to the acoustic style, the roguish singer explaining to his lady that he has to go abroad. 'Mama...' also employs the acoustic style. The hit, 'You Wear It Well' is the other example, beginning in much the same way as 'Maggie May' before developing a life of its own.
The slow, electric swagger of Hendrix's 'Angel' is another highlight, but each track is strong. Stewart's cover of the slow 'I'd Rather Go Blind' is beautiful and his band energise Sam Cooke's 'Twistin' The Night Away' to close. Soon, he would dispense with Ron Wood and co in favour of an American band of star names who, under Tom Dowd's production, would make tidy but dull music. This album and its three predecessors represent Rod Stewart at his artistic height.
