This Rod Stewart CD harkens back to my high school years. I can recall whe nearly every track on this record was played on FM radio. The lead off track Hot Legs really cooks with some gritty vocals, cool lyrics, and solid instrumental support. You're Insane and Born Loose continue this trend.
However, Rod shows a tender side as well. I Was Only Joking is a very touching tune with lyrics of a relationship gone sour. Some good acoustic and electric guitar solos add to the tune. You Got A Nerve is another tune with an intriguing vocal and a nice low key instrumental touch.
All in all this a good CD before Rod went the disco route and alienated many of his rock n roll fans. Seventies rock fans should pick this one up at once.
