I don't know, man. Rod Stewart. He's just... Rod Stewart. He's nothing special and he's never been something special. He's just a dude with a scratchy voice who can play piano but is only so-so when it comes to songwriting. This debut album... it's 110% a product of the time and hasn't aged well. I find it inoffensive with nothing realy exciting to recommend it. A little on the boring side, honestly. Just really middle-of-the-road background rock.

This is Stewart's golden era. Given the personnel and the sound it is basically a Faces record. And that is a good thing.

What do have against Rod Stewart? What did he ever do to me to deserve such ire (I think it was the feathered bleach tipped short hair like an Arizona golf retiree lady)? Anyhow, this album is great. Jumps back and forth between genres, folk, rock, a little blues, a little funk. Most impressive is the layering of string instruments, namely guitars. It seems almost all the songs have a depth imbued by the layers of guitars, 12 strings and mandolins, a few songs create a soundscape without a rhythm section. Every now and then he’ll throw in a rocking song with a bang in’ breakdown. Then at the end, sticking out like a sore thumb amongst all the folksy vibes is a funky electrified rock song to add a period to the album. Only strike against it is I found the lyrics a bit milk toast. It pains me to say it, but this album was dope. Giving it a well deserved 4.

Stewart’s voice is a great rock voice, for about half a song, then it starts to grate.

It's a music theory exercise solved in an uninteresting way. You can see flashes of cleverness in the way he covers songs, but once you get past the novelty, who cares? Best track: Only A Hobo

With a name like Rod Stewart, a raspy voice, and a rowdy personality, Rod Stewart is very rock-'n'-roll. I discovered him as a soft-rock figure, however. Kinda like Barry Manilow and Elton John. I discovered his popular live videos in Youtube such as his versions of "I Don't Wanna Talk About It" and "Sailing". This album is his second. Early Rod Stewart. Bland and generic Rod Stewart. To be fair, I didn't really expect anything surprising when I saw that cover. I expected it to be boring, and it is. Country-folk covers of "rock-'n'-roll" (according to critics) tracks. A few interesting instrumental feats here and there. Rod's raspy voice. I didn't find it captivating at all. It's dull, it's uninteresting, and I could die without listening to this album.

I was quite bored by this. It's the typical early 70s "rock" sound. The songs are nothing to write home about, except for Country Comfort, which is a cover. 2/5

Discazo. Desde los primeros acordes de "Gasoline Alley" al crudo retrato en "Only A Hobo", pasando por ese final de "My Way of Giving" y el desenfado de "Cut Across Shorty", disfruté todo lo que escuché. Más pretencioso, acaso, diría que me gustaron todas las "texturas". La canción final estaría cancelada hoy, pero qué bien suena, por cierto, este cierre de repente me dio vibras de los RHCP. En fin, un renovado respeto por Rod Stewart y su peculiar voz rasposa. 10/10

2nd Solo album for post faces Sir Roderick. A lovely mix of raucous blues and Mandolin tinged songs that touch his personal experiences. Lovely version of Womack & Womack's "It's All Over Now" which I think is better than the 'Stones version. Ronnie Woods guitar throughout this album is spot on and some lovely stuff throughout. Outstanding tracks the aforementioned "It's all over now" "Cut Across Shorty" and the eponymous "Gasoline Alley"

Same folky sound you attribute to Stewart. There's a retrospective feel to this, which is unexpected for a 1970 album by a guy who has made only his second solo album. The writers on this thing are epic though, Ronnie Wood, Bobby and Shirley Womack, Bob Dylan, and Elton John/Bernie Taupin. So cool! The album moves and feels like a compilation. That comes at the cost of cohesiveness, but it's still a great listen and great collaborations.

Sabía que debía haber algún álbum de Rod Stewart, pero se me hace curioso que sea este (de entre los 32 discos de estudio que tiene) porque, aunque es muy representativo de su primera época, no tiene más que quizá una de sus canciones realmente populares: Country Comfort (que por cierto es de Elton John). El disco en general me gusta mucho, pero imagino que debe ser un gusto adquirido porque esa voz rasposa que tiene desde hace 50 años no a cualquiera, y lo mismo el acompañamiento con mandolinas, pero creo que es justo lo que lo hace especial. Lo que no sabía a detalle es que en realidad casi todo son covers… Y de hecho así es en un montón de su discografía.

-Generally solid rock+ piano with a nice blues feel -Generally solid tracks with good energy dynamics (maybe a little low for my taste) up until "Cut Across Shorty" -"Cut Across Shorty" is probably my favorite track on the album. Really high energy with a great guitar/piano riff/jam -Right after "Cut Across Shorty," there was "Lady Day" and Jo's Lament" which were both mega boring and slow -Luckily the album finished off well on "You're My Girl (I Don't Want To Discuss It)," which is second best to "Cut Across Shorty" -Probably not as strong as the other Rod Stewart album I had, "Every Picture Tells A Story" -Probably a sketchy 4

It's been a while since I've been served up a good old rock and roll album on here, and this was such a refreshing change. This album is vintage Rod, laid back, warm and bluesy. It's a joy to listen to. Stewart is in perfect voice and has an outstanding band backing him up, including all of his mates from the Faces. I mean really, this sounds like a Faces album. No complaints here. Gorgeous sound, with some top notch guitar and mandolin work. Fave Songs: Gasoline Alley, It's All Over Now, Jo's Lament, My Way of Giving, You're My Girl (I Don't Want to Discuss It), Cut Across Shorty

I dunno, that 70’s blues rock sound still does it for me. And it helps that Rod’s still largely backed behind the Faces, who are a great band. The less plugged-in tracks don’t do much for me, but when Ronnie kicks in his iconic tone, this is a good time. B-

Stewart at his most soulful and before he become so calculated. From what we know now, the earnestness can seem like a put-on, but maybe that's just one beign jaded. Four very good songs – title cut, "County Comfort," "My Way of Giving," and "Lady Day" – the soulful ones basically. Much else feels disposable, replacement level rock of the era. His tone and phrasing are authentic, as the long-ago RS review had it, and well-judged, but few – if any – singers have had a voice better suited to rock. And to his credit, he works it well and versatilely and in many different styles. Perhaps that makes him a bit too chameleon-like but here the effect is coherent because of the marterial and mostly effective.

I like a the juice. I know Rod is English but something about this feels like Americana. Great title track, final track of the album reminds me of "I'm Losing You" by the Faces. Good old fashioned guitar driven rock. Rod's raspy voice is iconic. Country Comfort had me thinking I actually like the country for a few minutes. I want to give this a four... but can't imagine revisiting this. As we dig into this I think to get a four it has to be something I'm going to come back to...

I have always enjoyed rod stewart and the faces but haven't listened through their albums much. I'm especially excited to be listening to an unknown album from 1970, an excellent year for rock albums. Immediately this sounds more like the 70's then the 60's. Which makes sence to me when I see Ronnie Wood listed on guitar. He was so important for giving the stones their sound in the early-mid 70's. The acoustic and sometimes irish folk sounding song really remind me of Led Zeppelin 3. I thought most of the fast songs sounded like 3am drunk music to stammer to. They all have that driving drum beat and piano banging away.

Es desigual. Tiene unas 3 o 4 canciones bastante olvidables. Pero las otras, las que están bien, están muy bien. Es como country y blues, la voz rasposona de Rod es increíble, muy efectiva. Singular.

Took this one in on i5 to Skamokawa and am perplexed by the heavy traffic during COVID, and how this album made it among the 1001. Perhaps I don't grasp how truly big of a number 1001 is. There must be so many albums that do folk, do folk rock, do ballads, do the James gang thing on the last track, and do it better. We're gonna see so many more British white guys doing this and doing it better. Rod himself did it much better on his next album, for which I will throw down ample stars. Only a hobo is a great song. Maybe I just get grumpy in traffic. B-

Kurz überlegt, so beim ersten Song, ob er wohl auch mit 18 im Düsseldorf rumrannte. Oder uns wohl im weiteren Verlauf den britischen Bruce Springsteen geben will. Aber nichts davon manifestiert sich danach besonders. Statt dessen satte Produktion (die Drums und Gitarren - fantastisch aufgenommen, oder?), schöne Mischung aus stones-ig groovendem Bluesrock (Gasoline Alley (Kunststück, Ronnie Wood hört man natürlich raus) It’s all over now), Balladen, und weiterer, teilweise einfach sehr stilistischer ausgeborgt und gut abgehangener Weisheit (Country Comfort) und, ja wie soll man das nennen, prä-Americana? Mit den Eigenkompositionen gegen Ende (Lady Day, Jo‘s Lament) wurd‘s dann für meinen Geschmack bisschen zu folkig, aber dieses präzise groovende You‘re My Girl reißt auch das wieder raus. Schwankt um die 3,5 - am Ende isses Stewarts für mich an manchen Stellen leicht zu rauchig/harzig klingende Stimme, die noch höhere Weihen verhindert. Aber echt nur knapp.

So schnell ich das hier abhandeln wollte, lässt sich Roddy dann doch nicht abwickeln. Wirken die meisten Songs gerade zu Anfang wie eine gute Barband am Freitag Abend, wurdest im Verlauf dann doch intensiver. Schon diese traurig-schönen langsamen Nummern („Only A Hobo“, „Country Comfort“) sind es wert, dem Album sicher noch so manches Airplay gönnen. Vor allem auf entspannt sonnige Autofahrten. Was „Cut Across Shorty“ anstellt, belegt, warum es sich manchmal lohnt, zu warten. Könner 3.1

"Gasoline Alley" world almost as a companion piece of the discography of Rod Stewart band, Faces. It has contributions of almost every member in the band at the time, but the result is a little more folk and roots rock then the general Faces sound. It's a mix of Stewarts own compositions mixed with interestingly arranged covers of rock and roll classics like "It's All Over Now" and "Country Comfort". It's a competent record, as most things Stewart did at the time, but not as historical for pop music as some would sugest.

I went many years thinking I didn’t like Rod Stewart because I hate Sweet Caroline, and only a few years ago found out it’s actually Neil Diamond that I don’t like. Another reason I thought I didn’t like him was because I don’t like the song Mandy, but again came to realise my dislike is for Barry Manilow. So let’s give Rod his fair chance! Songs I already know: none Favourite after listening: Only A Hobo, Country Comfort Overall: 5/10 This was very middle of the road old-man-rock music. It doesn’t try anything interesting, but also doesn’t do anything terribly. It’s the kind of album where you just stop paying attention and forget you’re listening to anything. You’re not anticipating the end so so can stop listening, but at the same time you’re also not invested while listening. It’s very fitting that the main colour on the album is beige, because this album could not be more neutral. Side note, the two tracks I thought were best are covers of Bob Dylan and Elton John, so he shined brightest for me when performing music where somebody else took the wheel with the actual writing.

Dona la sensació que en aquesta època primerenca Stewart encara no havia solidificat la seva personalitat. Semblant al rock suat i belicós de The Faces, aquest segon disc en solitari no està entre el top dels millors discos del cantant. Malgrat això, sempre podem trobar grans moments, com la versió de 'Country Comforts' i un dels temes que passaran al seu llegat de grans èxits, 'Cut Across Shorty'. La resta és rock de batalla, poderós i amb una veu única, però no imprescindible

I would classify this album as blues rock. The album starts off strong with gasoline alley. Cut Across Shorty has great blues guitar solos. Otherwise filled with Rod Stewart's raspy voice, which I don't care for. I have a feeling this album won't be too memorable on this list.

It’s ok but to me it’s kind of like background music I would throw on and not pay attention to.

Middle of the road music for the masses. Not offensive, but not very interesting either. 5/10

Fone: Grado Sr60e Não escutei muito para definir uma música predileta No geral gostei muito das guitarras, Rod com uma voz de véio já nos anos 70 Agradável mas não me cativou

A decent album. Stewart has an undeniably distinctive voice and takes control of all the songs. However, a full album of his froggy rasp is a bit jarring. Best songs: Country Comfort & Cut Across Shorty

Nothing to see here. Every song sounds like a Rod song.

1. Gasoline Alley- A simple song about going home. Has some kind of country influences to my ears. 2. It's All Over Now- I like this one a little better. It reminds me of something that would be played at a honky tonk bar. It's a long song though! 3. Only a Hobo- I think this is a Bob Dylan cover. Very depressing song. 4. My Way of Giving- Another country-rock type song. Not very memorable imo. 5. Country Comfort- Kind of reminds me of an Elton John song (not sure if this came first). I guess it's just a song about life in the country. Not bad- nice to listen to. Lyrically better than some others so far, I think. I think the end drags on just a little bit though 6. Cut Across Shorty- A good old story-type country song. Like some others on this album, I think it suffers from being too long. 7. Lady Day- Nice little shorter song. Pretty background guitar. 8. Jo's Lament- A sad song. A slow song. One of the better ones on the album I think. 9. You're My Girl- Upbeat closer to the album. Lyrics haven't aged very well. I don't think this is a bad album, but I would never listen to it in my leisure time. If someone else is listening to it in the background, sure. It's not very memorable to me- it's Rod's first album ever so it makes sense.

lyrics and vocals weren't that great but the instruments were really varied and nice to listen to. Nothing really here really sticks out to me as great, like if I wanted this albums vibe I could listen to people who have done it better.

It’s okay folky rock. The story songs wear a bit thin after the first few tracks. Nothing super memorable or great to latch on to.

Alright but kind of forgettable. Best song was a Dylan cover and I probably would enjoy the original more.

Rod Stewart's second album is a rock album from the 70's with a collection of covers & originals. The music is beautiful, but I can't help to feel like it's background music.

Wasn't bad, but I prefer a lot of Rod Stewart's other music. 2.5/5 stars.

The interesting thing about Rod Stewart is that it sounds like he has a sore throat.

Country met rock'n'roll invloeden. Klinkt niet slecht maar ik ben ook niet echt onder de indruk. Gewoon niet heel bijzonder eigenlijk.

Quite liked the title track. Scratchy Rod didn't really do it for me after that

The heavier tracks are really good. Not here for the chilled out stuff though, it doesn't suit his voice. I also don't see the point of the tracks where you can't hear him over the instrumentation, but maybe that was cool back in the day.

This sounds less like a cohesive album, and more like Rod Stewart throwing various songs and genres at the wall to see what sticks. I've never been a huge fan of Rod Stewart, this isn't doing much to change that. Favorite track: "You're My Girl"

Good to know that Rod Stewart has been cranking out songs that sound indistinguishable from one another for 50 years.

A very middle-of-the-road album - it seems like Rod Stewart was made to play in the background of a shop? My top pick is 'Country Comfort' but upon looking it up, it's an Elton John original (who did it way better). I have nothing good to say, nothing bad to say.

I've heard a few Rod Stewart songs before, but never really got into his music. The old blues/classic rock ballads are dated, uninteresting, and quite frankly do nothing for me. While the music is nice and performed well, it's just a bit boring for my taste.
