Rod Stewart will forever remain a puzzle. Seemingly as comfortable playing perfunctory blues with the Jeff Beck Group in his youth as tossing off novelty piffle like "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" in later years, he also crafted an immortal and lasting rock album in EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY. The evidence remains: In the 1970s, at a time when Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Neil Young, and Randy Newman were recording some of their best work, Stewart was arguably their equal. The songs, with their precise lyrics and emotional stories, and Stewart's raw, bluesy vocals still tell the story: "Maggie May," one of rock's timeless singles; "Find a Reason to Believe," a sensitive and moving cover of the shambling Tim Hardin tune; "Mandolin Wind," a unique love song; and "(I Know) I'm Losing You," a gritty, streetwise cover of the Temptations' hit. And then there's "Every Picture Tells a Story" itself, a universal tale of a son going out on his own, delivered from the mouth of a callow but unforgettable boy man.
