4.0 out of 5 stars No Previously Unreleased Maggie May, 9 Sept. 2013
By 
This review is from: Rarities (Audio CD)
I downloaded the 'previously unreleased' BBC performance of Maggie May, only to find that it is exactly the same one as appears on the Faces 'Five Guys...' box set released in 2004. The only genuine rarity on this release therefore is the BBC 'Country Comfort'- which is OK but a little plodding compared to the studio version from 'Gasoline Alley'. The BBC Maggie May is a gem though - previously unreleased or not!

Otherwise this release is a bit of a mixed bag with a couple of well known singles, a few good out takes and 'alternate' versions, and some rough 'early' versions with very undeveloped lyrics.

If you're interested in Rod's classic 'Mercury' years then this is a good way of obtaining the Mercury material from the 'Sessions' box set without having to pay a 4CD price. It also collects together a number of other loose ends from that period.

Probably one for hard core fans of early Rod only - but interesting nevertheless (presuming you haven't already got this stuff elsewhere.)
