More Info:The Voice: The Very Best of Rod Stewart spins 16 Rod the Mod classic from his Warner Bros. Album and cross-licensed to include " Maggie May " and " You Wear It Well " from his Mercury release. This exclusive rare package includes material from 13 albums spanning from the early 1970's to the late 1990's.
''The Story So Far: The Very Best of Rod Stewart'' is a 2001 Rod Stewart career-retrospective compilation album, which summarizes his solo work beginning with material from his 1971 breakthrough album ''Every Picture Tells a Story'' until his 2000 album ''Human''. For contractual reasons, only two songs from his Mercury Records tenure ("Maggie May" and "You Wear It Well") were included. The rest of the material is from different albums released under Warner Bros. Records.
The compilation was particularly notable for dividing the songs between rock and pop tunes on the first disc (''A Night Out'') and love songs on the second disc (''A Night In''). Also, even though most of the songs included on the album enjoyed big success (29 out of the 34 songs originally reached the Top 10 in the United Kingdom and/or the United States), many hit singles were missed-out, including US Top 10 hits as "Passion", "Infatuation", "Handbags and Gladrags" and "My Heart Can't Tell You No". A particular inclusion on the album was the track "In a Broken Dream", recorded by Stewart as a guest with Python Lee Jackson back in 1969. The track wasn't a hit until 1972, when Stewart was already a superstar, and then the single reached #3 in the UK. The song remained unreleased on a Rod Stewart until its inclusion on this set.
In the US the album was released separately as ''The Voice: The Very Best of Rod Stewart'' and ''Encore: The Very Best of Rod Stewart Vol. 2'', though there are some differences in the content. Warner Bros. Records released ''The Story So Far'' on November 12, 2001 (see 2001 in British music) and the next day ''The Voice'' was released. On August 26, 2003 (see 2003 in music) ''Encore'' was released. - Wikipedia
