Before Rod The Mod became Rod The Superstar Sellout, he was a hungry young rocker who had the talent to match.
In fact, it’s probably slightly superior (too bad Rod couldn’t bottle this album’s rough yet oh-so-right sound, even if the songs themselves are rarely at a similar level), and though it didn’t break him through on a commercial level, that breakthrough would happen soon enough, and in a big way.
Rod was on a roll, and he was smart enough at this point to not fix what wasn't broken.

 Rod Stewart
Once upon a time, Rod Stewart was not vamping indiscriminately about "Hot Legs" and asking "D'ya Think I'm Sexy?" He was a singer with a gravel-voice approximation of Sam Cooke and excellent taste in cover material.
Then there is the exquisite "Mandolin Wind" (played by some guy Rod forgot the name of) and the frenetic energy of the title track, which lulls you into a false sense of security by beginning with an acoustic guitar part before the drums start drivin' this one hard and fast.
Stewart exhibits a lot of range on this album and for me the only that could possible qualify as a misfire would be the cover of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow Is Such a Long Time," which is a bit ironic because you would think that would work.
