5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten how good he was!, 2 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998 (Rarities/Sessions Box) (Audio CD)
This is a truly amazing box set comprising a mixture of unreleased early versions of songs, and some unreleased mastrerpieces.

The early version of Maggie May keeps the same tune but the lyrics are totally different.
Highlight of the first disc is a pared down version of I'd Rather go Blind which, along with many other tracks, demonstartes what a great soul singer yer man is.

On disc 2 there is an unreleased track, Innocent, which is a sequal to Killiing of Georgie which looks at the events from the killers point of view and what happenned next to him.

Other highlights include an all star recording of In a Broken Dream including Dave Gilmour and John Paul Jones. There are also some great stripped back tracks such as Scarred and Scared and a lovely version of the late John Martyn's May You Never.

This is a must for not just Rod Stewart fans but for anyone who wants to hear a true rock legend in his prime and without many of the bells and whistles that later producers added to the tracks.

The lyrics to Maggie May are different probably because Rod regularly forgot them.
