5.0 out of 5 stars They Wont Make Many More Like This..., 16 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Story So Far: The Very Best Of Rod Stewart (2CD) (Audio CD)
As a nineteen-year-old guy with a love for music I have bought many compilation packages in the past - admittedly, most are worthy of being nothing more than just another moneymaking spin for the record company. But then every once in a while a real treasure comes along & The Very Best Of Rod Stewart is probably the Very Best Of them all! Id never call myself a fan, I mean Rod Stewart? Come on, my mother used to listen to him - that just doesn't do for being cool!
I apologise now for such dumb thoughts - the music that I hear on these two disks is beyond cool! Disk one is called "A Night Out" (Rather, cheeky, sexy & flamboyant!) Its got Maggie May, Baby Jane, Hot Legs, What Am I Gonna Do? (Woa so groovy!), Rhythm Of My Heart, Downtown Train, Oh La La (with The Corrs), It Takes Two (with Tina Turner!) & many more. I had a no idea I would love each & every song - & I had no idea just how many Rod Stewart songs I know!
The second disk is called "A Night In" & it has got those gut wrenching ballads, including: Sailing, I Don't Wanna Talk About It, The First Cuts The Deepest, You're In My Heart, Every Beat Of My Heart, Ruby Tuesday (Always admired this song - but this version is even more awesome!), Waltzing Matilda, All For Love (with Sting & Bryan Adams) & one exceptionally beautiful track called The Killing Of Georgie, which pays tribute to a young gay guy - & all he endures until his death at such an young age - very, very moving.
On a personal note, I am Scottish & some of these songs remind me about certain things. But more so, they all remind me about all the things that matter most in life - companionship, loyalty, love, going home ...(& timeless rock songs!) I can't help noticing that most of these magical songs are written by Rod himself.
Its easy to throw five stars about - I've done it in the past - but I promise that this title is most worthy. All the tracks seem to be the originals & they say "Digitally Re-mastered" - another plus. The package has even got half decent sleeve notes - unusual these days. If you want a criticism then I say that one song that is missed from this compilation is When We Were The New Boys (1998) - it really sums everything up; but the disks run for almost 80 mins each - no room for more I guess!
PURE ENJOYMENT >> A MUST HAVE!
(In my humble opinion...)
