I think this is the last album by Rod I consider worth buying. I never did think he was sexy, so I stopped when the next one came out. But I have all his solo albums previous to 'Blondes Have More Fun' except for 'Atlantic Crossing' which I am still looking for. Rod had 'changed direction' musically a few albums previous to this...although a few of the songs have a bit of an 'edge' to them, he had departed from working with the Faces and was becoming more of a 'pop' performer. Which if that is what you wanna do, fine, but...just not my cup o' coughee. Gotta say it was good while it lasted... Rod Stewart - Foot Loose & Fancy Free
Studio version from the album, "Foot Loose & Fancy Free" (1977).

I never cared for old raspy voice or thought he had hot legs.

Yeah, I was thinking I had seen you mention before you weren't too keen on him

My mam loves Rod Stewart, he played here a couple of years ago and my mam had tickets but she missed it because Leonard had just been born and he was in NICU so she wanted to be available if anything happened I told her she should definitely still go but she said she wouldn't enjoy it cos she'd be too preoccupied. I'm sure it was his last ever tour or something like that

I would like to have seen a show in the mid-70's when he still played with Faces but jails 'n stuff...

@JolietJake That does tend to put a damper on seeing shows.

I liked him better before he went all Barry Manilow.

Right with you. That was a good album. Didn't he break up with Britt Ekland before this album? It has that "man, am I lonely" feeling to it throughout.

Have you ever used Gemm.com? I've found a lot of hard to find stuff through them.

I'm waiting to find it 'in the wild' so to speak when I go out on a crate hunt, I could buy it from Discogs

The way my mom talked about him and my sister too one would think he had talent? I would never accuse him of knowing how to sing! I never thought he was sexy as my mom thought he was!

He's been around forever, and is doing another tour next year. He's coming to our town, but I know that my husband has no desire to go and see him, I wouldn't mind it, but I won't go without him.

I prefer his older stuff with a harder edge to it
from Every Picture Tells A Story (1971)

I prefer his early work before he started to become a `pop` performer.

To be honest, I think he is sexy somehow.

I like some of his songs but not all. Can't even understand why some women fall for him but then again, perhaps because I have never been in that fashion model category.

I love some of Rod's music, his voice is raspy and indistinguishable! Maggie May was my favorite song, by him.
