In A Broken Dream – Python Lee Jackson, Rod Stewart – This is the one that gave A$AP Rocky the sample for “Everyday”, recorded in 1972. I know Rod pretty well but it completely passed me by when he finally included it on the The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998. Here it cashes in on A$AP’s hit, just like it should do – B+

Nice mix and match here, classic rocker Rod, the return of Adele, two new and good rock bands, a metalcore speed punk band, some dream rap and all of it good stuff. You’ll enjoy it -a good week of sounds.

I’ve heard the Dave Gahan album and if you are a Depeche Mode fan you are in for a real treat, as for the rest of us? we aren’t in for a real treat. Joanna Newsom is the last woman standing when it comes to “no streaming please”. Bully for her but I’m not gonna pay to hear her. 5SOS? Not so much. Carrie Underwood? Nope. I am going with Rod Stewart.

Oldies But Goldies: Rod Stewart As Serious Rock Star

By Iman Lababedi | September 17, 2015

This dates from 2009, and right now it reads a little like we take these truths to be self-evidently but at the time I thought Rod Stewart’s greatest achievements were more or less forgotten. So in a vail effort to rectify the situation… I wrote what everyone knows!

The A+ List: 8-23-14

By Iman Lababedi | August 23, 2014

Underage sex, alcoholism, threesome, and a quick wit. A gorgeous melody, great anthem. If this was released today Scotland Yard would have him in handcuffs, be searching his mansion, and wanting more information about his friendship with late Jimmy Saville, and 50 year old alcoholic women would be suing him.

1971: The A+ List

By Steve Crawford | May 15, 2014

1971 was a great year for what we now call classic rock – Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who all released indispensable albums. Boiling down 1971 to 20 A+ tracks was no easy feat – my apologies to the Chi-Lites and the Stylistics, among others.

Rod Stewart Live Box set To Drop March 18th, 2014!

By Iman Lababedi | March 6, 2014

Why the late 1976 start date? Where are his peak early 1970s years? It is truly bizarre his label Rhino are not including them and I can only hope that the reason is because they are holding back for one more release. But till then this will do.

Not much of a week for new material, indeed nothing actually made it and that’s a first outside of a Christmas or New Year’s week. And what there is tends to be there because of a concert I’ve seen or am seeing, except for two hit singles!

By Iman Lababedi | December 11, 2013

There is still no crime in giving people precisely what they bought and there is no crime in growing old and missing a step and Rod Stewart did exactly that in his “Live The Life” concert at Madison Square Garden, Monday: he gave the people what they wanted and he missed a step

Hear Ye: what rock nyc is listening to 12-9-13

By Iman Lababedi | December 9, 2013

This is what David Fricke wrote about this terrible song in Rolling Stone: “”It’s about the seeds of dreams, and U2 play it perfectly: down-to-earth, while looking up.’. The truth is, the lyric, apparently taken from Nelson Mandela’s love letters to one of his wives, is asinine and the track is a Church organ in search of a song and not finding it
