Sunday's Disc - Rod Stewart - Every pictures tell a story (Mercury 1971)

I love finding and sharing superior quality - both musical and sonically - discs...

Brand-new or decades old, I don't care, as best music is timeless as it can be...

Today I gave a spin to a disc I didn't listened in eons: Rod Stewart's iconic 3rd album from the '70s on Mercury.

... and it is a truly great disc!

It's full of life and great musicianship... the musicians are top and Rod's young gravel voice is far from the later stardom-tinted over-productions and lesser waxes.

A lot of nice acoustic guitars, six and twelve strings, and slide guitars... bluesy, some songs, a Bob Dylan's cover... Danny Thompson on double bass as guest-artist in one track!

A nice °Amazing Grace" version for slide twelve strings guitar and... one of the MOST CONVINCING drums kit I ever listened to, period!

The '70s recording skills, ahem... art was truly remarkable and this old disc is a truly well kept secret and a demo quality disc with music to par!

Enjoy as I enjoyed, folks.

P.S. - it was also issued on Mobile Fidelity Super-discs... even better, if possible!
