Rod Stewart: Amazing Grace

Again, I am somewhat late for my post on this Spiritual Sunday due to oversleeping this morning. Today’s tune is courtesy of Rod Stewart’s number one, multiplatinum selling LP “Every Picture Tells a Story.” “Amazing Grace” was not even listed on the label of the 1971 American release on Mercury Records.

This two minute version, which is mostly instrumental, only includes the first verse of John Newton’s hymn. The recording features only two musicians: Rod Stewart on vocals and Sam Mitchell on slide guitar. The song was additionally featured in the 2010 movie “Due Date.”
