JDIZZY's 365 # 133: Gasoline Alley

Gasoline Alley - Rod Stewart (1970)

I don't even know where to start with Mr. Stewart. When I was a kid, I thought he was a new artist on MTV with his '88 comeback hit "Lost In You". Then my patient parents set me down with the Every Picture Tells A Story album, and there was no turning back. I, unlike most of his fans, appreciate all of his work across the decades, but you really can't touch those first five albums for Mercury. Gasoline Alley is my sentimental favorite, and the title track is perfection incarnate! As my girlfriend's mom would say, "Sing to me Rod Baby!".

Hmmm, well her vocals are awesome.
