Product Overview

Coming on the heels of his departure from The Faces, A Night on the Town was Rod Stewart's first solo album. With his usual collaborator Ron Wood, Stewart gathered together an impressive group of backing musicians that included Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and Al Jackson of Booker T & The MG's, Joe Walsh, the Tower of Power horn section and multi-instrumentalist David Lindley. Dividing the album up into fast and slow sides, Stewart chose an interesting batch of songs, included some notable self-penned compositions.

Coming on the heels of his departure from The Faces, A NIGHT ON THE TOWN was Rod Stewart's first solo album. With his usual collaborator Ron Wood now a member of the Rolling Stones, Stewart gathered together an impressive group of backing musicians that included Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and Al Jackson of Booker T & The MG's, Joe Walsh, the Tower Of Power horn section and multi-instrumentalist David Lindley. Dividing the album up into fast and slow sides, Stewart chose an interesting batch of songs, included some notable self-penned compositions. These include the tragic "The Killing Of Georgie (Part I And II)," about the murder of a gay friend, and the ultra-sexy ballad "Tonight's The Night (Gonna Be Alright)." Along with a delicate rendering of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut Is The Deepest," these songs provided a perfect springboard for the more sprightly fast side. "The Balltrap" is a clever Stewart composition about a sinister femme fatale. "The Wild Side Of Life" and Gib Gilbeau's "Big Bayou" make for a perfect marriage of Chuck Berry stomp and country twang.
Professional Reviews
Q (11/00, p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...More coherent [thanhis debut, ATLANTIC CROSSING]...home to both the stunning, self-penned 'Killing Of Georgie'...and Stewart's superlative reading of 'The First Cut Is The Deepest'..."
Artist Bio
Rod StewartFor Rod Stewart, 1975 was a year of profound personal and professional change. Because of Britain's high tax rate, he moved from London to Los Angeles, where he signed with Warner Bros. Records, and left his longtime mates in the Faces to finally commit himself as a solo artist. His first two "American" albums--Atlantic Crossing and A Night on the Town--went gold and double platinum respectively, charting with signature hits like "I Don't Want to Talk About It" and "Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright)."For a limited time, Warner Bros. will reissue both albums as two-disc Collector's Editions that contain the original album remastered with a bonus track and a second disc that contains unreleased takes of every album track, plus unreleased outtakes.Along with Stewart's new home came a new producer, Tom Dowd, a man whose gifted ears led him to run sessions for some of Stewart's soul idols, including Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Ray Charles. It was Dowd's idea to record Stewart with many of soul music's legendary musicians: guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, and drummer Al Jackson Jr., known as the MGs (minus Booker T.); and the Swampers, the renowned studio band from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, who played on many of Aretha Franklin's best. This fresh beginning marks the point where Stewart left behind his frequently rustic, folk-inflected sound and replaced it with the glossy stadium anthems that would become his new imprimatur.Stewart's sixth album, Atlantic Crossing became a hit in Britian and the U.S., where it was certified gold. It contains two of Stewart's signature hits: "I Don't Want to Talk About It" and "Sailing." The latter became a 1 hit in the U.K. and a popular soccer anthem, a gratifying twist for Stewart, a rabid fan of the sport. Along with an alternate version of the album, the bonus disc also contains an eclectic trio of outtakes: the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody," Lee Dorsey's "Holy Cow," and Elvis Presley's "Return To Sender."In 1976, Stewart returned with A Night on the Town, a double-platinum success thanks to the 1 smash "Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright)," the definitive cover of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut is the Deepest," and "The Killing of Georgie" (Part I and II), a heartfelt tribute to Stewart's friend, who was mugged and killed in New York. Stewart cut the majority of A Night on the Town in Los Angeles with musicians who are credited as "The Garage Band," a tongue-in-cheek reference to the caliber of players assembled for the album: the MGs once again as well as guitarists Joe Walsh, Jesse Ed Davis, David Lindley, and Fred Tackett.
