Rod Stewart - SoulbookHaving successfully tackled pop standards with his best-selling Great American Songbook series, it was a natural step for Rod to turn to r&b classics. On Soulbook, the flamboyant Scot covers 13 favorites from the ’60s and ’70s and duets with such stellar guests as Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson. Working with all-star musicians, Rod transforms well-worn numbers like the Motown nugget “It’s the Same Old Song” into something new, fresh and uniquely his own.
