Live 1976 – 1998 Tonight’s The Night is a compilation live album by Rod Stewart that extends over 4 CDs.
The first disc is all from 1976, the second moves from 1976 to 1981, the third from 1984 to 1989 and the final disc from 1991 to 1998.
This then captures his career as he turned from a rocker with the Faces to a massively successful pop star.
The critical view is that he had “it” in the early 1970s with albums like Every Picture Tells A Story but he was losing it by the time Sailing and Atlantic Crossing appeared in 1975 and it was gone completely by the time that he turned to disco with Do Ya Think I’m Sexy.
That view probably needs to be refined. He continued to produce high quality singles with the odd exception, even if he’d lost that special creativity that he had in his younger days.

Real Live is a live album by Bob Dylan recorded in 1984 with a star backing band including ex Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor and Ian McLagen from The Faces at concerts in England and Ireland.
It was Taylor’s involvement that persuaded me to buy this Dylan album because I loved his guitar playing with the Stones (listen to it on Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out and Brussels Affair).
And I’m glad I did.
It’s not a classic but it’s well worth hearing.
Bob Dylan Real Live Overall Rating – 24/30
