ROD STEWART...Blondes Have More Fun  (1978)
Blondes Have More Fun was released 35 years ago in 1978.  It reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  It receives 4 1/2 out of 5 stars and is recommended listening.  Disco was the big thing in the late 70's and a few rockers experimented with some disco sounds (the Stones, McCartney, Kiss, Elton John) and so did Rod Stewart.  "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" to this day is still a great track to listen to.  Other highlights include the ballad "The Best Days Of My Life" and the cover of the Four Tops hit "Standing In The Shadows Of Love".  Check it out
