Rod is still the Mod!!

‘Maggie May’ and more arrive in ‘Rod Stewart Sessions’
Every disc tells a story in The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998, a four-CD box set spanning nearly three decades of the rock legend’s career in studio tracks, outtakes and ephemera. The set, out Sept. 29 on Warner Bros. for $65 (physical) and $30 (digital), opens with an early, ragged version of Maggie May, the hit that launched his solo career in 1971.
The set boasts unreleased versions of Scottish rocker Frankie Miller’s When I’m Away From You and Python Lee Jackson’s In a Broken Dream, featuring Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones.
The unfinished Think I’ll Pack My Bags, which later resurfaced as Mystifies Me on Ron Wood’s solo debut, made the cut, along with alternate takes of Sailing, Tonight’s the Night (It’s Gonna Be Alright) and You Wear It Well, plus acoustic renditions of You’re in My Heart and Rosie.
Rarities from the ’80s include unreleased song Thunderbird and a spare Forever Young. The collection closes with such shelved ’90s tracks as covers of Bob Dylan and The Band’s This Wheel’s on Fire, Oasis’ Rockin’ Chair and Bobby Womack’s Looking for a Love.
