is the fourth solo Never a Dull Moment album by rock musician Rod Stewart. It was released in the summer of 1972; that year it became a UK number-one album (for two weeks) and reached number two on the US Album chart.  The track "  You Wear It Well", co-written by Stewart and classical guitarist Martin Quittenton, was a smash hit (another UK No. 1; in US No. 13), as well as " Twisting the Night Away", a song originally recorded (and written) by Sam Cooke.
Like many of Stewart's albums from the era,
Never a Dull Moment features significant musical contributions from the members of the band Faces. Other guest musicians included Ray Jackson of the band Lindisfarne on mandolin, Spike Heatley on upright bass, Gordon Huntley on steel guitar, Dick Powell on violin and Pete Sears on piano and bass.
"Mama You Been on My Mind" is a
cover version of a Bob Dylan song. Stewart's version is one of the songs featured in Nick Hornby's book .
8-track tape release of the album the song " What Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)" was on program 2 following "Twistin' the Night Away", but it was not mentioned in the song listing.
"Angel" was written by
Jimi Hendrix as a tribute to his mother. Hendrix and Ronnie Wood had shared a flat in the late 1960s, and were both at a Soho club on the night he died.
