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.
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.Read more ›
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...
