In some ways, it's easy to think of A Night on the Town, Rod Stewart's second album for Warner, as a reprisal of the first, cut with many of the same musicians as Atlantic Crossing, produced once again by Tom Dowd, and even following its predecessor's conceit of having a "Slow Side" and "Fast Side" (granted, this flips the two around, opening with the slow one first). Superficially, this seems true, but A Night on the Town has a crucial difference: despite its party-hearty title, this album finds Stewart folding folk back into his sound, a move that deepens the music tonally and emotionally, particularly in the case of "The Killing of Georgie (Pts. 1 & 2)," Rod's most ambitious original. A winding, sensitive narrative about the murder of a gay friend -- a hate crime years before the term existed -- "The Killing of Georgie" finds Stewart filtering Dylan through his own warm, conversational style, creating a remarkable work unlike anything else in his body of work, yet the song's smooth synthesis of folk storytelling, soul, and incipient disco act as an appropriate conclusion to a side-long suite of songs of seduction, beginning with his classic come-on "Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright)," running through his splendid reading of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut Is the Deepest," and his fine original "Fool for You." On the Fast Side, Stewart has only one original -- the lewd, riotous "The Balltrap" -- but he more makes up for it by spinning two country classics, Gib Guilbeau's "Big Bayou" and Hank Thompson's "The Wild Side of Life," into thick, Stonesy rock & roll, and turning Manfred Mann's "Pretty Flamingo" into a rave-up. With all this in mind, A Night on the Town isn't a revival of Atlantic Crossing, it's its inverse, with Stewart shining as an interpreter on the fast songs and writing the best slow ones, but it's also its equal, proving that Stewart could still stay true to his open-hearted, ragged soul while on a big budget. (Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Allmusic)

First of all, the original album is one of Rod Stewart's best. Chances are you know about the singles--Tonight's the Night, First Cut is the Deepest and the underrated "Killing of Georgie" but the rest of the tracks are all as good, with the exception of "Trade Winds." The rockers are high energy affairs with Rod wrapping that magnficent voice around amazing guitar work by Steve Cropper and other great studio musicians. And "Fool for You" is something of a forgotten Rod Stewart classic.

But the real treat here on this limited edition is the second disc. Starting with a never-before released song, "Share" which maybe a little weak lyrically but is still a vital track due to Stewart's delivery. The disc then features alternative versions of the entire original album. "Tonight's the Night" features a different third verse, and this new unearthed version of "First Cut is the Deepest" may actually be better than the orginal.

All of the versions of disc 2 are unpolished wich provides a unique listening experience that I highly recommend to all Rod Stewart fans. If you EVER liked a Night on the Town, you will love this limited collector's edition. But get it quick as it won't be around for too long! (Record Runner)
