is a Camouflage studio album released by Rod Stewart on 18 June 1984 (see 1984 in music). It was Stewart’s 13th studio album and was released on Warner Bros. Records (WEA 925 095-1). Three singles came from this album. They were " Infatuation", "Some Guys Have All the Luck", and a cover of the Free hit "All Right Now". The album marked a reunion of sorts between Stewart and Jeff Beck, who plays guitar on several tracks, as the two had been members of the influential 1960s group The Jeff Beck Group.
Album information [ edit ]
All the tracks were recorded at Lion Share Studio in
Los Angeles, CA. Grammy award-winning producer Michael Omartian produced all the songs except "Bad for You", which was self-produced by Rod. In the liner notes, a disclaimer alludes to a reason behind this.
