Likely planned back in 2009, when the four-disc box The Rod Stewart Sessions 1971-1998 appeared, Live 1976-1998: Tonight's the Night is another deep dip into Stewart's archive – a four-disc box containing 58 unreleased recordings crossing three decades…
Absolutely Live is a live album by Rod Stewart, released in 1982. It is compiled from shows at The Los Angeles Forum, Long Beach Arena, San Diego Sports Arena, and Wembley Stadium (London).
As part of Universal's Colour Collection, Rod Stewart is featured on previously released tracks taken from the singer's stint with Mercury in the '70s. Among the 17 tracks are the original versions of "Maggie May," "Every Picture Tells a Story" and "Twistin' the Night Away."
Since his early days as a member of Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, Bill Kirchen has distinguished himself as a showman of the highest order. This, his first live solo recording, captures the vivacious presence of the man who is without a doubt one of the true fathers of the country-rock movement. His significance to country-rock and American roots music was obvious early on; after 30-plus years in the business, his influence can be found in the work of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, and every outfit that tried to marry country & western music to rock & roll after the 1976 demise of the Airmen. Hot Rod Lincoln Live!, recorded in February of 1997 at the Globe Theater in Berlin, MD, gives credence to the undeniable power and spirit of Bill Kirchen.
