Album of the Day
A NIGHT ON THE TOWN
Rod Stewart began releasing his own albums while still fronting the Faces but by the time of A NIGHT ON THE TOWN his focus was squarely on his solo career. With seasoned record men Tom Dowd and Arif Mardin behind the boards and talent like Joe Walsh, the Tower Of Power horn section and most of Booker T.'s MG's joining him in the studio, Rod couldn't miss. The primarily original “slow” side has the best-known songs – such as “Tonight’s The Night” (which topped the Billboard singles chart on this day in 1976) - but the “fast” side is equally strong, with a rocked-up version of the country standard “The Wild Side Of Life” and a confident take on the U.K. beat classic “Pretty Flamingo” in the lineup. You're good for A NIGHT ON THE TOWN with this Platinum-certified hit!
