Ten star album
on 30 January 2004
There are very few albums which are indispensable. The Beatles Revolver, Stones Exile on Maine Street and the like. For me, truly great records capture a moment. You listen to them, and they transport you to another place.
The Faces and solo Rod Stewart were never as good as this before or since. From the opening 'Miss Judy's Farm' which is awesome, the songs just get better and better. Their interpretation of Chuck Berry's Memphis Tenessee followed by 'Too Bad' followed by 'That's all you need' will make you feel grateful that you're alive. That's the thing with 'A Nod's as ...'- you feel so alive.
I dug this out of my garage the other day, put it on for the first time in five years and was dumbfounded. How could I leave it in my garage? How dare I deny myself its energy, humour and atmosphere for that long? Shame on me! Shame on you too if you miss out on it.
Buy it, forget about Rod Stewart warbling Tom Waits songs, turn the volume up and listen to a great rock and roll band sitting at the top of the tree!
