Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing of this 1969 album by the veteran rock vocalist.
An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down – AKA The Rod Stewart Album - was the solo debut album by Rod Stewart released in the United Kingdom in February 1970. In the United States, the album was released in November 1969 as The Rod Stewart Album and peaked at #139 on the US Billboard 200 album chart. Freshly split from the hard-edged Jeff Beck Group and about to join Faces, Rod Stewart rocked out on this album with songs such as the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man" plus many other others including five original songs. A brilliant kickoff to the singer's long and storied solo career. Several members of Faces also appear on the album, as well as Keith Emerson, Jeff Beck Group drummer Micky Waller and guitarists Martin Pugh (of Steamhammer, and later Armageddon and 7th Order) and Martin Quittenton (also from Steamhammer).
