Editorial Reviews

When Rod Stewart signed to Warner Bros. in 1975, the deal coincided with his move to the States, and his coming into his own as a reigning global superstar. Stewart's debut for the label, ATLANTIC CROSSING, was his sixth solo LP and his first without any of his mates from the Faces, who disbanded in '75. Produced by the legendary Tom Dowd, it made Billboard's Top 10, and charted with the now-classic hits 'Sailing' and 'This Old Heart Of Mine.' A NIGHT ON THE TOWN followed in 1976-Stewart's first platinum release, it delivered the #1 smash 'Tonight's The Night.' Both albums mixed covers and originals split between fast and slow sides, and both were recorded in Muscle Shoals and Los Angeles with session luminaries including the MG's. The pleasure of each title is now doubled with 2-CD COLLECTOR'S EDITIONS, and a wealth of previously unreleased tracks.

First of all, the original album is one of Rod Stewart's best. Chances are you know about the singles--Tonight's the Night, First Cut is the Deepest and the underrated "Killing of Georgie" but the rest of the tracks are all as good, with the exception of "Trade Winds." The rockers are high energy affairs with Rod wrapping that magnficent voice around amazing guitar work by Steve Cropper and other great studio musicians. And "Fool for You" is something of a forgotten Rod Stewart classic.

But the real treat here on this limited edition is the second disc. Starting with a never-before released song, "Share" which maybe a little weak lyrically but is still a vital track due to Stewart's delivery. The disc then features alternative versions of the entire original album. "Tonight's the Night" features a different third verse, and this new unearthed version of "First Cut is the Deepest" may actually be better than the orginal.

All of the versions of disc 2 are unpolished wich provides a unique listening experience that I highly recommend to all Rod Stewart fans. If you EVER liked a Night on the Town, you will love this limited collector's edition. But get it quick as it won't be around for too long!

This review is for the 2009 2CD Limited Edition (catalogue # R2 516570).

I only knew this album through the hits "Tonight's The Night (Gonna Be Alright)", The Killing of Georgie" and "The First Cut Is The Deepest" but bought it based on the multiple positive recommendations at the Steve Hoffman forums (the best place on the internet for discussing the sound quality of music releases). Audiophiles at that site (Google it) have said "... the original mastering is a little brighter in the upper frequencies, and I think that Rod's voice sounds more natural on the new remaster .... These releases are really great and worthwhile" - I agree 100% with those comments.

This 2CD set has excellent sound quality that is a worthwhile upgrade over ALL previous releases.

Bottom line:
- This album has converted me from a casual fan to a much more serious Rod Stewart fan.
- The SQ is very very good. The packaging is superb (although I'm not the biggest fan of this digi-pak style), although all the artwork is printed on thick card and the booklet is printed on very good quality paper. The graphics are excellent quality.

Highly recommended to buy this - even if you're just a casual Rod fan (as I was), you will find extra material on here worth listening to. It's that good I also bought the Atlantic Crossing (2 CD Limited Edition) too!

The subject matter contained in that song wasn't even something you would talk about when this album was first released in the 1970's...it is Rod Stewart Storytelling at it's very best...if you have never heard it you need to...the rest of the cd is very good. It's broken up into a set of fast rockers and a set of slower, mellow tunes...the vinyl record was broken up by side one and side two...I don't remember which side was what but the cd of course will just play through all the tracks but that was not how it was meant to be listened to...the hits came from the softer side of the record...if you're new to Rod Stewart I would start with "Every Picture Tells A Story" or "Never A Dull Moment" because this album marks a change in where Rod's music was heading....some people loved it and others didn't...if you're looking for "Rod The Mod" then start elsewhere...if you're collecting/building a Rod Stewart Collection then this is a must have album...

Rod Stewart has made possibly every type of song in his illustrious career, and this album is a fine example of just how diverse Rod is. This is one of those albums where you don't skip to the next track; every track is that good. The "slow half" features the obviously slower, lovelier tracks, while the "fast half" features throw-it-in-your-face boogie down songs. For a relaxing evening of enjoyable, high-quality songs, pick this 1976 gem up.

I recall that my parents had this on vinyl and I was a mere 10 years old.
Track Listings:
1. Tonight's the Night
2. The First Cut is the Deepest
3. Fool For You
4. The Killing of Georgie (Part 1 and 2) - Good example of a singer/songwriter telling us a story.
5. The Balltrap - Rod must had had a serious thing for a girl. It is comical.
6. Pink Flamingo
7. Big Bayou
8. The Wild Side of Life
9. Trade Winds.

The deluxe editions of A Night On The Town and Atlantic Crossing that were released in 2009 were both fantastic. Terrific sound quality and excellent bonus material. They represent the best of what archival reissues should be. But I am concerned that with the financial decline of Rhino Records, that the remaining reissues in this series will not be released. Deluxe editions of Footloose and Fancy Free and Blondes Have More Fun were supposed to have been released in early 2010 but they have fallen off the radar. What a shame. The remastering is all done and all they have to do is release it. You'd think with Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? being voted one of the 500 Greatest Songs in the current Rolling Stone collector's edition, that this would be a great time to put out such a reissue. I hope that the rest of these collector's editions are released. Write to Warners/Rhino if you'd also like to seem them released. I understand the work is already done on all of them and they're just sitting there waiting to be released.
