Another hits collection but still missing songs. Will there ever be a complete Rod Stewart collection. Missing are: Crazy About Her, Having A Party, Your Song, Don't Come Around Here, Lost In You, People Get Ready (w/Jeff Beck), Broken Arrow, That's What Friends Are For and So Far Away (the Carole King tribute). A fan can have a better collection with Rod's Greatest Hits CDs Vol. 1 and 2.

Gotta say it, 'cause no one has said it so far, the previously unreleased track "Two Shades of Blue", makes this set worth buying if for just that one track. Gently swaying but percussive and with one of the most inventive and memorable orchestral backings ever, this song is just gorgeous. Rod wrote the lyrics, which cut write to the heart. Who says sad songs can't hurt so good? Just beautiful. Unbelievable that this was a leftover track from the 1998 sessions for the album "When We Were the New Boys".

I got the DVD + 2 CD version. I love all the songs and the remastering is gorgeous which makes the old songs come to life. The DVD has videos on it that were left off the "Storyteller" video set. And the videos on this set are more rare. Some I'd never seen before. Some of the videos are not very creative but it's still good to see them. One of my favorites is "If We Fall In Love Tonight" with Rod the studio photographer lovingly taking photos of many friends, families with babies and lovers. What really makes it for me as this is one my most favorite Rod songs. There are many faves, but "If We Fall In Love Tonight" has many unique textures - from the piano fills which sound like gentle rain, to the rhythmic scratching to the uniquely placed background vocals placed just ahead of the lead singer and which contrast nicely with Rod's vocal. The track is one of Jam and Lewis' finest productions ever.

After a hard week I come home some Friday nights, turn out the lights and blast the tunes "If We Fall In Love Tonight" and "This" (from Rod's "A Spanner In The Works"). All the while I sing my heart out. Sure beats the bar. "Two Shades of Blue" is bound to be added to my set list.

While Rod Stewart was never really one of my favorite artists I certainly cannot deny that he has been among the most popular and prolific recording artists of the past 40 years. Ever since the release of his debut LP "Every Picture Tells A Story" and the double sided smash single "Maggie Mae/Reason To Believe" back in 1970, the music of Rod Stewart has been fixture on lierally thousands of American radio stations. Even today, whether you gravitate to classic rock, enjoy oldies but goodies or prefer adult contemporary you are likely to hear a Rod Stewart tune on your radio in the not too distant future. Over the years the folks at Mercury and Warner Brothers have issued any number of "Greatest Hits' packages. But never has there been one as comprehensive as "The Definitive Rod Stewart". This extraordinary 2 disc set features 31 of Rod Stewart's biggest and best hit singles from his days at Mercury records in the early 1970's right on through the mid 1990's at Warner Brothers. If you have been in the market for a Rod Stewart collection then believe me this is definitely the one you want!

"The Definitive Collection" kicks off with a handful of Rod's earliest Mercury hits. I have always been of the opinion that this stuff has stood the test of time and remains among his best work. Despite the fact that "Maggie Mae" was played to death throughout the 1970's and beyond this one continues to be one of Stewart's most popular recordings. It may surprise some of you to discover that it was the actually the flip side "Reason To Believe" that was originally released as the single. To this day "Reason To Believe" remains one of my very favorite Rod Stewart recordings.

It has been 40 years since Rod Stewart finally made his way into the hearts or music fans all over the world. Yet, with all his highs and lows, his music has never lost its edge. But, there have been some moments where people weren't interested in his voice because of the next big fad. Still, that hasn't stopped Rod from making great music, and having a delightful sense of humor. Yet, with his 40 years, he hasn't really had a definitive hits collection that showcases just about everything from his delightful voice. Now, to celebrate all those years Rod Stewart had proclaimed if you think he is sexy, a new anthology showcasing Rod's highs and lows is released. but does it actually do enough to appal to fans young and old?

The 2008 Definitive Rod Stewart is a double album reflection of Rod's biggest rock staples throughout his eras with Mercury and Warner Brothers in the 70's, 80's and 90's. The double album includes a lot of Rod's hard core staples that have withstood the test of time, and are still enjoyable to listen to after all these years. The songs have all been remastered well, and includes his biggest staples including Do Ya' Think I'm Sexy, the definitive and youthful Forever Young, to his best moments of the 80's and 90's like Some Guys Have All the Luck, and Reason To believe which brought fans to their knees from his 1993 performance on MTV Unplugged. While the double album fares well, what really surprises me is the DVD too, which includes off-shoots and lesser-known tracks that could've had the light of day on the album like the overlooked Ooh La La and If We Fall In Love Tonight. Not only that is a disadvatage, but I was also hoping that on the DVD there was also videos of his hits Forever Young and the colorfully animated The Motown Song. Not only that.
