This is the first Rod album I bought (when it was first released) For the London fan's info. it is also known to be Rod's favourite. Lady Day & Jo's Lament are haunting ballads while the duet with Elton John on Country Comfort is splendid. Anyone who only knows Rod from Atlantic Crossing onwards doesn't realise what a fine body of work they have missed.

Having revealed his folk influences on his debut solo album, Rod Stewart explored the genre further on his 1970 follow-up. The gutter-and-grime sleeve art is relevant to much of the material, which tells stories of people who either rise from the social basement or sink deeper into it. The magnificent acoustic title track recalls humble origins and leaves you with a breathless aftertaste. Apart from this, there are only two other original songs. One of these, 'Lady Day,' in similar style, tells of a girl whose rise in society leaves a less fortunate lover behind, while 'Jo's Lament' charts the broken relationship of a down and out. Stewart also covers one of Bob Dylan's observations of injustice from 'John Wesley Harding,' 'Only A Hobo.'
Elsewhere, there's a rousing version of 'It's All Over Now' and a typically perky Small Faces song, 'My Way Of Giving.' Stewart's version of an old Eddie Cochran hit, 'Cut Across Shorty' is typically unexpected, an acoustic rock reading complete with fiddle. Taste in choice of material and interpretation are two of his biggest strengths and his take on Elton John and Bernie Taupin's 'Country Comforts' from John's old West-preoccupied 'Tumbleweed Connection' is just such an example. The album closes with a funky rocker, 'You're My Girl,' completing a second successive classic Rod Stewart album.

Like many others, I would imagine that I got this album (in 1972) after the world-wide runaway success of "Every Picture Tells A Story" the previous year. In summary, this is a wonderful album of originals and covers from Stewart and which acted as a fine template for "EPTAS" and though over 40 year old (as I write this), it still stands the test of time.

The opening title track "Gasoline Alley" is the first of many Stewart/Wood compositions in their status as Faces or solo-Stewart musicians and is one of Stewart's `road/going back home' songs so prevalent in his early career. It also gives Ron Wood free rein to lay down some multi-tracked guitars, namely acoustic 12 string, bottleneck and electric lead blended together in some lovely melodic guitar runs.

A cover of the Rolling Stones "It's All Over Now" (Bobby & Shirley Womack) is so loose, it's almost shambolic but oh so good. Wood adds bass guitar to his electric guitar credit here.

Stewart's first ever career Dylan cover (and with Stewart they're almost always obscure covers), "Only A Hobo" follows and is a complete contrast to the previous track. Apart from Wood's bottleneck, entirely acoustic, it features Stewart and Wood on acoustic and Martin Quittenton on classical guitar. Quittenton's guitar runs and the complimentary stand-up bass lines are superb and along with gorgeous violin from the legendary Dick Powell (who, along with Johnny van Derrick, must rate as one of Britain's best-ever session violin players). Wood again here, adds double-tracked bottleneck guitar, which dominates the mix along with Powell's violin towards the coda. Micky Waller adds a lone, but sympathetic syncopated hi-hat as a sole contribution to percussion.

Superb 2nd studio album from Rod Stewart which should find favour with lovers of blues and rock. The title track, co-written with Ronnie Wood, is a classy opener and Stewart's original compositions 'Lady Day' and 'Jo's Lament' are pretty impressive too. 6 of the 9 tracks here are covers with Bob Dylan's 'Only A Hobo' and the lively 'Cut Across Shorty' grabbing the attention with 'My Way Of Giving (Steve Marriott/Ronnie Lane) and 'Country Comforts' (Elton John/Bernie Taupin) demonstrating a wide and interesting range of material. 'You're My Girl', which completes the set, is another punchy rock number; for me, the only slight downside is the inclusion of 'It's All Over Now' which simply goes on too long and doesn't add anything to the Stones' version. Even so this album is well worth buying along with his other early releases.

I had forgotten early Rod until I purchased this album and why I loved his music so much back in the very eary 70s . Okay it doesn`t have the massive production sounds of todays work but nonetheless this is Rod at his best and before hedumped the Faces and sold himself out to LA and all that empty shallow big headed lifestyle many stars of his current status lead( Im convinced it shows in the mind numbing music he is croaking out today) . Still this is the old ass kicking Rod on this album and a seer joy to listen too ,

Arguing the merits of Rod Stewart's 'Mercury Records Years' albums (1969 to 1974) is like saying a few of the Beatles albums from the Sixties were 'pretty good' and you should 'probably' buy some. What I'm getting at here is 'which' version of "Gasoline Alley" should you buy? And while I'm at it what about 1971's "Every Picture Tells A Story" or 1972"s "Never A Dull Moment" or even the lesser-seen "Sing It Again Rod" LP compilation from June 1973 that went to No. 1 but never seems to show on CD? I want to argue that the whole period was magical musically (even the disappointing "Smiler" from 1974 had its fab moments) and this is one of those occasions where you should forego the individual purchase and buy the bleeding lot.

There's a Remastered stand-alone CD for "Gasoline Alley" from 1995 with just the 9-tracks and the gorgeous UK artwork inside and out – an expensive but audiophile Mobile Fidelity Gold CD release from 2011 and a beautifully done Japanese SACD from 2014 - as well as a dizzying array of '5 album collection' Mini Box Sets - most of whom use the 'US' artwork. But I say go for this instead...

US and UK released in November 2002 (reissued January 2005) – "Reason To Believe: The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings" by ROD STEWART on Mercury/Universal/Chronicles 440 063 422-2 (Barcode 044006342221) is a 3CD set of Remasters that offers fans all six albums from the period along with rare 7" single edits and five outakes first released on a 1995 2CD retrospective.
