Lead Vocalist is a compilation album released by Rod Stewart on February 22, 1993 (see 1993 in music). It was released by Warner Bros. Records in the UK (WX 503) and Germany (WEA 9362 45258-1/2), but was never released in the US. Three songs from this album either had previously or would be released as singles: “Tom Traubert's Blues”, “Shotgun Wedding”, and “Ruby Tuesday”.

Album information

Lead Vocalist was released on the heels of Rod receiving the prestigious Outstanding Contribution or Lifetime Achievement Award at the BRITs. The album was advertised appropriately as a “celebration of Rod's glittering career.” It opens with seven tracks from earlier in Rod’s career. Notably, four of these were not from his solo career. “I Ain’t Superstitious” was released while with The Jeff Beck Group, “Cindy Incidentally”, “Stay with Me”, and “Sweet Lady Mary” had all been released on Faces albums. Lead Vocalist closes with five new releases – all cover versions. The new releases were recorded at Woodstock House in County Wicklow, Ireland and Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles, CA.


Lead Vocalist went to #3 on the UK charts.
