ROD STEWART: An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down
Rod Stewart has released a new album, almost fifty years after his debut on Vertigo with “An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down”. By that time, Stewart had been in a number of short-lived groups which featured future stars Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and Long John Baldry. His venture with Jeff Beck would also prove to be short-lived, though it would bring him fame and lead to a creative partnership with The Jeff Beck Group’s bass-player Ron Wood. Stewart kept developing solo projects (mainly in the studio) alongside his engagement in The Faces. The break-up of this band, would also be the real start of Stewart’s international breakthrough – embracing disco, Christmas songs and evergreens and, regretfully, abandoning his stunning earlier work. His first LPs reveal a great singer with a unique capacity of interpreting songs. By Eddy Bonte
“I know what you’re thinking – Rod Stewart? And I agree; a Stewart album would normally be the last thing I’d listen to, much less recommend. But this, his first solo LP, comes highly recommended for all those into the heavy acoustic rock groove of the Stones’s Beggars Banquet; in fact, this album could easily be re-titled “Beggars Banquet II” — even the cover follows the original “RSVP” Beggars Banquet sleeve. (And to make the Stones similarity more obvious…it features Ron Wood on guitar, years before he replaced Mick Taylor.) An ancient issue of Rolling Stone informed me of the LP. Greil Marcus raved about it in his Feb 7, 1970 review, even claiming it was the only album of late ‘69 (other than Let It Bleed) which picked up the mantle laid down by Beggars Banquet. Marcus is one of those reviewers who, analytical as he can be, I’ve always respected, mostly because he was one of the very few critics who praised Skip Spence’s Oar…back when it was originally released. (…).
“Street Fighting Man” opens the record, and it’s a great song, not just a great cover. It starts off all heavy acoustic rock, pounding drums, pedal steel guitar, banging piano, and an acoustic guitar riffing away. Stewart’s vocals lack the vitriol of Jagger; he instead sings with the raspy wail we know so well. A brief bass solo and it’s back into the groove, here a bit fatter than the proto-punk of the Stones original. An electric guitar pops up for an extended jam session in the middle; you think the song’s over much too abruptly, but then it picks back up – from what was the beginning of the Stones original. “Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy,” wails Rod on multi-tracked vocals, and you can’t deny the power. Another bass solo, then things get real weird…a treated piano begins to play the opening chords of that psychedelic Stones classic, “We Love You!” What must this have sounded like in the back-to-the-roots era of late 1969?”.

SANDY COAST: FROM THE WORKSHOP
Sandy Coast started as a skiffle Group in Voorburg, Holland, 1961. Notwithstanding the many merits of the other group members, Sandy Coast was the brainchild of composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Hans Vermeulen (1947-2017). As a pop group, they excelled in nice, harmonic, classic songs, such as We’ll Meet Again (no. 30, 1966), Sorry She’s Mine (no. 40), A Girl Like You ( no. 28), And Her Name Is…Amy (no. 22), I See Your Face Again (no. 12, 1968) and True Love, That’s A Wonder (no. 3, 1971). Amazingly, they never broke the Top Ten in the sixties. At the end of that decade, the group turned psychedelic and experimental, delivering ‘From The Workshop’ in 1968. Such was their professionalism and status in the music industry, that Larry Page of Page One records (The Troggs, etc.) came to see them in Holland and signed them on the spot. Chart-wise, they fared better in the early seventies, but Vermeulen disbanded Sandy Coast when he considered he had given everything he had to give.
