About this deal

Este disco, aunque está perfecto, no me parece que se escuche especialmente bien. Se oye bien, ojo, pero no es el sonido ese espectacular que se espera. With Atlantic Crossing, Stewart ended his association with Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan and the stable of musicians who had been his core collaborators on his classic run of albums for Mercury Records, fusing soul and folk. Instead, he used a group of session musicians, including The Memphis Horns and three-quarters of Booker T. and the MG's. The album was produced by Tom Dowd, the famous engineer and producer on records by so many of Stewart's heroes during Dowd's time on staff at Atlantic Records. The only song performed from this album on The Faces' final US tour in autumn 1975 was "Three Time Loser", and the rest of the group heavily disliked Stewart's change in musical direction on this album. Following the success of the album, and his move to the U.S., Stewart announced his exit from the Faces by the end of the year. Offiziellecharts.de – Rod Stewart – Atlantic Crossing" (in German). GfK Entertainment Charts. Retrieved 3 November 2021. El disco se compone de dos caras, como es lógico en cualquier vinilo, divididas en temáticas. La cara A, la llama Fast Side y son canciones más movidas, a mi juicio, sin demasiada trascendencia. La mayoría son de Rod Stewart y no, no es un gran compositor. La cara B en cambio, llamada Slow Side, son esos temas míticos compuestos por otros y dónde Rod Stewart brilla como la estrella baja bragas que es.

Of the ballads, "Drift Away" must rank as one of his most pointless covers especially as Dobie Gray's hit version was still a recent memory. "It's Not The Spotlight" and "Still Love You" both unconvincingly attempt to reintroduce the mandolin to his sound which so characterised earlier hits. "I Don't Want To Talk About It" is a sensitive cover of a lesser-known Crazy Horse tune and became one of his signature songs although it wasn't released as a single until partnering the next album's "The First Cut Is The Deepest" as a double A-side over a year later.

When going through Stewart's solo early solo records I'm always wary that maybe this one will be the one in which he abandons his early sound for the money-chasing of his later career. But the truth is never so straight-forward and so I find myself listening to a record that manages to both sound close enough to his early sound to not piss me off but also has enough signs of impending doom as to piss me off.
