Editorial Reviews

Out-of-print in the US. 2000 remasterd pressing. Kicking off with the swagger and machismo of one of the quintessential 70's anthems, "Hot Legs", FOOT LOOSE AND FANCY FREE is a blistering joyride, a swaggering period piece that, like all of Rod's best work, immerses itself in the prevalent style of the time-- by 1977, funk-tinged rock was all the rage, and FOOT LOOSE is a carnival of wah-wah guitars ("You're Insane"), epic arrangements ("You Just Keep Me Hanging On"), and unabashed earnestness (the nostalgic and confessional "I Was Only Joking".) FOOT LOOSE's greatest contribution to the Stewart canon has to be "You're In My Heart", a timely, sensitive classic that stirs in just enough breathy whimsy to its strangely down-home feel (bluegrass violins and U.K. football references not being one of your more common pairings in pop music) to create yet another milestone in Stewart's varied and timeless career. Warner.

I fell in love with this record the first time I heard it.
Aaron H. Leffler
There's also the great ballad "You're in My Heart" and good but unlikely covers of both "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want to Be Right" and "You Keep Me Hanging On."
Danno
I discovered this album in my brother's record collection when I was five and its been one of my favorites ever since.

Rod Stewart's "Foot Loose and Fancy Free" has so much variety, a newcomer would be excused for thinking it's a greatest hits package. There are two big radio hits here, but the rest of the CD consists of solid songs that are usually overlooked by classic rock archivists. There's 'Hot Legs' (which was a concert highlight and which features some great Keith Richards-like guitar riffing)followed by the funky 'You're Insane' (easily as good as any of the disco rock the Stones served up in the late 1970s). There's also the great ballad "You're in My Heart" and good but unlikely covers of both "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want to Be Right" and "You Keep Me Hanging On." Of course, "I Was Only Joking" is one of the finest things Rod recorded in the late 1970s. The sheer variety of material, along with the high caliber of musicianship among Rod's sessionmen, make this a very entertaining CD that holds up to repeated listenings.

Rod Stewart is usually overlooked by critics and rock-and-roll historians because he was an extremely successful and commercial force in mainstream rock music in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Almost anything he recorded before 1990 is ripe for rediscovery and reappraisal, and this CD is an excellent place to start your Rod Stewart collection.

You think John Mayer is groundbreaking? You think Sarah MacClachan can rend your heart strings?You think Evanessence' lyrics are haunting? It is difficult to imagine now, but there once was a time when Rod Stewart made soulful, daring, cutting edge music with a heart and passion that are timeless. I love "The Crossing" and "Every Picture tells A Story" but this album is right up there. What other artist uses a mandolin for crying out loud and gets away with it? I love "I Was Only Joking", I adore "Heart and Soul" but my all time favorite Stewart gem is "You Got A Nerve" a song that gets into your blood and lingers there forever. Are you a Stewart fan- buy this album! Or are you a person who's wondered why the fuss over Stewart? Buy this album and see WHY he is the legend that he is. A voice that caresses the emotions like this one comes along once in a generation.

I fell in love with this record the first time I heard it. This cd has many hits, but I enjoy the other tracks just as much. His rendition of (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to be Right is a classic. This is a must have for any Rod Stewart fan!

Rod Stewart released his eighth solo album entitled Foot Loose and Fancy Free in November of 1977.
The album came hot off the heels of his huge blockbuster, 1976's A Night on the Town. When Rod toured for A Night On the Town, Rod put himself together a dynamic new band for the album which consisted of Jim Cregan and Gary Grainger (all of whom would be in Rod's band for next decade) and Billy Peek, bass player Phil Chen, keyboard player John Jarris and legendary rock drummer Carmine Appice. Rod was so impressed with his new solo band that he and his band plus legendary producer Tom Dowd (Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers), engineer Andy Johns (work with The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and others) plus help from guitarists Steve Cropper and Fred Tackett and keyboard players Nicky Hopkins and David Foster went in the studio to record what was Rod's best solo album since Never a Dull Moment.
The album begins with the classic rocker "Hot Legs" (which was released as a single and was a huge hit) and is still a great rocker today. Next is another stellar rocker "You're Insane" which just plain old rocks out. We slow down for the hit ballad "You're In My Heart" which was an ode to Rod's love of English football (soccer to us Americans) and a great ballad and a huge US hit. Then we end the first side with another rocker out of "Born Loose" which has the legendary John Mayall on some scorching harmonica and sounds like an outtake from Rod's old band The Faces.
Side two starts with Rod's take on The Supremes' hit "You Keep Me Hanging On" which was done in the arrangement that Rod's drummer Carmine Appice did it a decade earlier when Carmine was in his band Vanilla Fudge and a great rocking version.

Dayglow glare on Stewarts face staring back at you from this album cover says it all; since his cross continental journey began three years earlier Rod Stewart had gradually become part of of the 70's LA rock sound which,for all reasons was rather being despised at the time since other musics such as punk and disco were creating much more of a stir in the music world. None of this seemed to effect Rod Stewart much. His previous recording A Night On The Town is justly regarded as one of the best overall offerings of his musical career and all of his Warner Brothers recordings in the 70's found him doing something he'd begun to leave behind during his final Mercury years: looking for new ways to express himself musically and keeping things fresh overall creatively. In this case we're dealing with one of the most lyrically and musically eclectic releases Rod Stewart ever did on the label. With musicians such as Steve Cropper,Carmine Appice and David Foster onboard this album is important because it emphasizes more Stewart orginals as opposed to exercising his talents as an interpretive vocalist. The rockers "Hot Legs",one of the best known hits from this album and "Born Loose" are quite different in flavor than Stewarts manic,fast paced rock numbers of yore. These songs have slower tempos and a sassy,happily decadent atmosphere that showcases how similar a path Stewart was taking with the Rolling Stones in terms of rock n roll at this particular time.Read more ›
