"I've waited for "Downtown Train" & "Heart of Mine" videos on DVD and the wait is worth it. Stewart, gives his fans what they want and what they'll enjoy. The "Brooklyn" girl in "Train" leaves home coifed to the max, and returns as we all do from 8 hours: a little worn down. The girls in "Heart of Mine" are absolutely breathtaking as is the energy & joy of Ron Eisley.In many of the videos Stewart lays the >ham< on quite heavy but it only adds to the charm of his delivery and of his intent. Watch for the use of his hands in the above two referenced videos plus: "Forever Young".....it makes ya just feel so darn good! I don't profess to be a dogged Stewart fan but from the look of his videos his heart is unmistakeably vibrant.A stunning collection. If you don't have it, you have no idea what you're missing."
The man does it all!

"I am a big fan of Rod Stewart. This collection of his songs is an excellent choice. I especially enjoyed the song THE MOTOWN SONG. The entire DVD will keep your attention and you will want to view it over and over. Hope they decide to release other ones of him, as there are a lot more songs that I would love to see on a DVD."
Hail to the Rod!

"This video is essential for any self-proclaimed rabid Rod Stewart fan. The songs are selected from his very best works, and the videos are all very high-quality, not just a bunch of explosions strung together to grab attention like most of today's music videos. Buy it! Buy it NOW!"
Every Beat Of The Heart

"For so many acts thay have came out of Britain, it has always been a come and go method. Sometimes, we forget about them, and we choose other artists to replace them as new favorites. That case came so many times within Rod Stewart, but he has always found ways to bounce back to the top of the charts. Still, it is his amazing soulful voice that just keeps us guessing to his status.Storyteller, is a collection of Rod Stewart music videos from 1984-1991. The collection goes from his entry to the MTV generation with his videos from Camouflage, all the way to Vagabond Heart. The songs don't range greatfully, but it does show why Rod Stewart has remained as a constant in this industry geared toward youth. The music videos range greatly with ballads like Every Beat Of My Heart and Downtown Train, to his soulful party anthems like The Motown Song and Infatuation. The video collection was made based on the triumph of Rod Stewart's 1989 boxed set, Storyteller. Although you don't hear the singles from Vagabond Heart on the boxed set, they are right here.Still, it is just a shame that we don't give Rod Stewart all that credit anymore. Still, he alwasy knows what makes a great vibe in a song, and the style as well. He hasn't changed with his Earthy voice since he started his career with The Faces. I just know there is a lot more soul to come."
Rod knows how to sell records

"If you wanted to sell records in the 80s and early 90s (and we all know Rod loves selling records as much as he loves his blondes), you had to make good, or at least expensive videos. Rod Stewart did just that. The best of this bunch include "Every Beat of My Heart," "Broken Arrow" and the animated "Motown Song." Rod fans will also love the ridiculous "Some Guys Have All The Luck" which feautres Rod doing his helpless dancing routine. He's definitely a singer not a dancer but still amusing to watch. Also look for Rod with slicked back hair as he drives off with the girl at the end of "Infatuation." The missing videos from this period include "Crazy About Her" from 1989 and "Love Touch" from 1986."
