If ONCE IN A BLUE MOON hasn’t exactly been the Holy Grail for the Rod Stewart faithful, it’s only because they didn’t know what they were missing — until now. Recorded in the summer of 1992 with producer Trevor Horn, this unique collection of covers captures Stewart at his interpretive best — his magnificent voice yearning, pleading and shouting in all its gravelly glory through a superb selection of songs.
ONCE IN A BLUE MOON — THE LOST ALBUM is available now exclusively from www.rhino.com for a suggested list price of $19.98. Reminiscent of the year when it was originally slated for release, the CD comes packaged in a vintage long box.
While each of the album’s 10 songs were previously released in various countries in different mixes, six have never been available in the U.S. in any form until now. To celebrate the long-overdue release of this lost classic, the CD contains two hidden tracks — both unreleased — recorded during the album’s sessions. Together, they form an exciting whole that places BLUE MOON squarely in the upper reaches of Stewart’s classic catalog.
