Rod Stewart's liner notes to ABSOLUTELY LIVE go out of their way to stress the purity of this 1982 stadium concert recording. The mistakes have been left in, he swears, and audience interaction has been left intact (including a lewd show of appreciation by two young women during "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?") As the "Stripper" theme dissolves into the energetic "Tonight I'm Yours (Don't Hurt Me)," the album bears out this claim.
As the album careens through hit after hit (16 in all), Rod can be heard working his magic; strutting, seductive, in all his raspy glory. Swaggering latter-day classics such as "Hot Legs" are crytstal clear in performance and over-the top in pure live energy. The early classic "Maggie May" is given a respectful arrangement, graced by organ and (plugged) acoustic guitar, which includes an audience sing-along, bringing the song to a near-orgasmic crescendo. Closing with appearances by Kim Carnes and Tina Turner for the sassy "Stay With Me," ABSOLUTELY LIVE captures one of rock's greatest legends at the top of his game.
