With his soulful and singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has paved one of the most iconic and successful musical careers of all time. From his time in the Jeff Beck Group to The Faces to his ever evolving solo career, the two time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has been at music's pinnacle for more than five decades!

Every Picture Tells A Story, his third solo effort, was the album that made Rod Stewart a bonafide superstar. Released in 1971, the album hit #1 in both the U.S. and the U.K. and the centerpiece single “Maggie May” has gone down in history as one of the greatest songs in rock & roll.

You really can't go wrong here as the 10-track masterwork also features such charming originals as the title cut and "Mandolin Wind" plus definitive versions of the Elvis Presley made famous "That's All Right," Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time," The Temptations' "(I Know) I'm Losing You" and Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe.”

---
 Without greatly altering his approach, Rod Stewart perfected his blend of hard rock, folk, and blues on his masterpiece, Every Picture Tells a Story. Marginally a harder-rocking album than Gasoline Alley -- the Faces blister on the Temptations cover "(I Know I'm) Losing You," and the acoustic title track goes into hyper-drive with Mick Waller's primitive drumming -- the great triumph of Every Picture Tells a Story lies in its content. Every song on the album, whether it's a cover or original, is a gem, combining to form a romantic, earthy portrait of a young man joyously celebrating his young life. Of course, "Maggie May" -- the ornate, ringing ode about a seduction from an older woman -- is the centerpiece, but each song, whether it's the devilishly witty title track or the unbearably poignant "Mandolin Wind," has the same appeal. And the covers, including definitive readings of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time" and Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe," as well as a rollicking "That's All Right," are equally terrific, bringing new dimension to the songs. It's a beautiful album, one that has the timeless qualities of the best folk, yet one that rocks harder than most pop music -- few rock albums are quite this powerful or this rich. allmusic review
