Good stuff from the greatest voice in rock history!
Inevitably the quality of some of the recordings is better than others. The audience is pretty much inaudible in the mix in some numbers - which matters when Rod and the band are virtually silent to allow the crowd to let rip! Personally , I favour the stuff from the 70's and early 80's when the band was still clearly a rock band playing it proud and loud! As the decades roll on the performances get more polished - and Rod's voice amazingly gets stronger and more consistent - but the manic energy of the 70's gigs is missing. If you are a Rod fan you have to own this set - it will fill the empty days until he tours in a few months time!
One issue : why doesn't the record company release something similar on DVD? any Rod fan knows that hearing the gig is only half the story - the stagecraft of the man has to be seen in order to get the full Rod experience .

There is so much Rod Stewart out there it's hard to know what to buy if your a new comer, me being a avid fan from the early days of every picture tells story etc and having 95% of his output I reluctantly purchased this, and as live albums go this is not bad, better then The album RS live, stand out tracks are from the Leicester concert 1976, angel is superb, hot legs is awful in any shape or form ! If your a collector then buy it if not buy a RS greatest hits there are a million compilations out there or buy The Faces albums,now we're talking .....

It not really so easy to review a box set on first listen, but here goes anyway.Any fan will already know most of the songs and Rod is still widely rated as one of the best live acts on the scene, all the hits are here. With 58 songs covering Rod's live rock era before he took a decade break to record the American song book albums and a few slightly iffy covers albums.
Of the Highlight tracks here include "Forever Young" "Sailing" "Every Picture tells a story" "Stay with me" twice(overkill really but recorded 16 years apart). Cover versions of Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart" which is OK if not a patch on the original. There is a great version of "Baby please don't go" possibly made more Famous by Van Morrison in Them. Some songs work better than others but there is a lot of good stuff here for any fan.

Overall is a bargain at under £20 for 58 songs, get it to go with your other boxsets.

I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of these live performances. One track really stood out for me on disc 2, 'If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right' must be one of the best vocal performances I have heard from Rod Stewart ever, the man puts in an incredible effort that really stood out as I was hearing this box set.
There are even a few great blues songs such as a Muddy Waters cover. This is a great collection of some of the best live recordings Rod has recorded and performed over a 20 year period. Lots of rock and roll songs and a few of his classic ballads, it's all here, even a few Faces classics.
This set compliments the previous box - The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998
The only gripe is the very ordinary booklet included with just the bare minimum info.

Having been fortunate enough to have seen Rod Stewart in countless live performances since 1978, the one thing I have learnt is that if one goes along expecting a flawless vocal performance you'll be disappointed.
The joy of seeing Rod perform live is all about the whole experience. He is a magnificent showman who always engages with his audience and sells every song as if it's the most important thing you'll ever hear.
This collection really captures the reason why so many of us keep returning, year after year, to see Rod Stewart perform. The great music, the humour, the bonhomie and general feeling of "let's have a great time and if a few mistakes creep in... what the hell" are all here in abundance.
Great stuff!

I bought this because of the mix of classic, well-known Rod Stewart songs (that I have on other albums, but good to have them in one place) and some real hidden gems. These four discs cover a range of Rod's many different styles form the years, but are peppered with great cover versions that sets this apart from standard greatest hits fare. A few dud notes / voice squeeks as you'd probably expect from a man whose voice is unique but not exactly classically trained, but these are more than made up for by the rest of this great set. Would highly recommend for a Rod fan.

Great live album from Rod's best performances over the years, definitely worth getting if you are a fan of his. Well worth the money.

This box set covering 4 CDs and a variety of concerts is just fantastic. Yes some tracks are repeated but hey who cares. Sound quality is excellent and a good selection of songs covering a spectrum of styles is wonderful..what a cover of Bruce Springsteen's Hungry Heart is worth the money alone. I am not even going to criticise that we don not get a full show from each venue as it is such good value for money. Keep on rocking Rod.

Not the best live album I've heard but then again it certainly isn't bad. There's plenty of the stuff that people know him for and its done well. What's lacking is that 'stand out' track that makes a live performance note worthy. I don't think any real Rod fans will be disappointed.

A pleasant change, even though they claim to have never been previously released - a few have. Brilliant though, if only for the full live version of Springsteen's 'Hungry Heart'.

Sorry though guys, Rod's the REAL BOSS, but I'll give Bruce the title of 'deputy'!
