The first cd starts off with five early recordings, before moving on to three really excellent Jeff Beck Group selections. Up next are the non-album oddity "In A Broken Dream", followed by "Street Fighting Man" and "Handbags & Gladrags" from Rod's first solo album. "Gasoline Alley" is represented by four tracks, with things brought to a close with "Sweet Lady Mary" and "Had Me A Real Good Time" by the Faces. The second cd features a generous selection from "Every Picture Tells A Story", including five of the eight tracks. Then it's back to the Faces for "Stay With Me", before a whopping chunk of "Never A Dull Moment". The less-than-essential "Smiler" album provides two tracks, and the Faces' "You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything" closes the second disc.
From here on, the collection does become a bit patchier. Rod had, arguably, passed his creative peak but was about to enjoy bigger commercial success. The third cd takes material from those albums recorded after his relocation to the USA. "Atlantic Crossing" yields three cuts, including the inevitable "Sailing". Then comes a relative rarity, in the shape of "To Love Somebody". This is a collaboration with Booker T & The MG's, whose members helped out on his first two American albums.Read more ›
The Jeff Beck group is fairly well covered, The Faces only includes a few tracks which is the biggest disappointment, his solo work in the 1970s was his strongest and thankfully is very well covered here in this collection.
There is no really rare or unreleased stuff, just the hits and classics, a good set for the price for sure.
The four discs cover the period 1964 to 1990 and include all the big hits , top album tracks and rarities.
They contain collaborations with the Jeff Beck Group, Steampacket, Brian Auger and the Trinity, Python Lee Jackson ( no prizes for guessing which one !) and of course the fabulous Faces.
There is also a duet with Ronald Isley and a previously unreleased track with Booker T. and the MG`S. So a wide variety of artists and a great selection of songs. What more could you ask for ?
i believe that the contents are the same apart from a smaller booklet.
which has rod's notes on every track that are very interesting.
i would have preferred to pay a few pounds more for a modern book pack.
many of the songs are the full length album versions.
some of the biggest hits were double a sides these are all included.
no b sides are here but many were just album tracks.
the music is a great overview of his career up to 1990.
there was not much very exciting after that apart from tom traubert's blues.
rod stewarts solo albums up to 1980 and all of the faces albums are well worth having.
these should be reissued as mini cd album collections.
the later ones were quite patchy and he has only released the 5 volume american songbook in recent years.
there are a multitude of greatest hits albums that are all now redundant.
if you love good music buy this and relive rod the mod's glory years!
Thing is some of these sets and this is a good example of it were well put together covering the whole period of an artists life and on this set we start with the mid 60's R&B boom, move through those 'classic' Mercury album recordings from the early 70's, his later more disco centred period in the mid to late 70's and the 80's comeback on four well filled discs in chronological order.
The only period I'd say was bit under represented was the Faces but there's some good compilations on Warner's that'll give a decent selection of that important part as everything is well covered and for audio fans well mastered too so much so I'd take this over the later compilations which at it's current bargain £9 price is a steal and then some.
Just buy it if you love Rod but need a decent compilation on cd.
