Rod Stewart: Atlantic Crossing

Bud Scoppa, Circus, November 1975

HAPPILY, THAT HORNY, rank, exuberant rascal who romped through Rod Stewart's masterpieces Gasoline Alley, Every Picture Tells a Story and Never a Dull Moment has returned. This irresistible character — partly fictional, partly autobiographical — infuses Stewart's sixth solo album with such life that its several notable stylistic and tech-nical shifts are rendered secondary.
