Rod Stewart A Shot Of Rhythm & Blues Import 180g LP
Compilation On 180g Vinyl LP!
A Shot of Rhythm & Blues collects tracks Rod Stewart recorded during the
early part of his career (1964-1968). To those that know Stewart's later work
this material may sound unusual; this album encompasses classic blues and R&B,
far from the folk-rock that made Stewart famous. Nevertheless, Stewart's young
voice is strong and supple, and these mid-'60s standards give us a real sense of
this talented singer taking the time to find his musical identity.
The 1964-1966 cuts are assembled from a 1964 single as part of Long John
Baldry's The Hoochie Coochie Men, demos Stewart sang on with Steampacket,
various 1964 soul/blues demos, his late-1965 pop single for Columbia "Why Does
It Go On" and his 1966 third Columbia single "Shake/I Just Gome Some".
Post-1966, Stewart really starts to come into his own with richer, grittier
vocals and harder blues-rock arrangements, including the 1967 vocal duet with
P.P. Arnold "Come Home Baby" and the 1968 soul-pop single "Little Miss
Understood/So Much To Say".
