1964-1969 (2 CD set)
This set contains Rod Stewart's work as a session man.
For some inexcusable reason this set does NOT have a proper booklet and contains NONE of the information you need to figure out what year each song was made and what band was involved. The only information is on the back of the case that lists a few `featured' artists.
Disc One has two songs featuring (?) John Paul Jones and several other songs featuring (?) Long John Baldry. The songs on disc one are not very good, but it does show the kind of session work Rod was doing in the early 1960's.
Disc Two is much better than the first one. There is one cut featuring Peter Green and one with Keith Richards and Keith Emerson, which is produced by Mick Jagger. The best song of the set is "In A Broken Dream" which Rod sang for the Australian rock band `Python Lee Jackson' (but you would never know this by reading the disc info). "In A Broken Dream" rarely shows up on Rod's `hit' CDs and so this set is a good place to get it.
Disc One rates 2 Stars
Disc Two rates 4 Stars
Overall, this set gets 3 Stars.
