Coming on June 4th is a new LP box set of Rod Stewart's first four Warner Bros. albums, titled, Rod Stewart 1975-1978. The collection also includes a bonus album of rare and unreleased studio outtakes from those albums: Atlantic Crossing (1975), A Night On The Town (1976), Footloose & Fancy Free (1977), and Blondes Have More Fun (1978).
Rod Stewart said in the collection's announcement: “It's extraordinary for me to look back on this era of my career. I think fans will enjoy experiencing these songs on vinyl. I know I did.”
Rod Stewart admitted to us that he recognized early on that it was his voice above anything else that drew fans to his music, both with the Faces and on his own: “I know that's what got people's attention. With my first couple albums, it wasn't necessarily my songwriting. It was my style of singing, and the odd cover versions I did on my first two albums — the covers and the wide range of material that my voice would allow me to cover.”
