We’re remembering a classic from the Rod Stewart catalogue, Vagabond Heart which was released 30 years ago this month, in March 1991.
Stewart’s 16th studio album, Vagabond Heart was a chart-topper around the world, reaching No. 10 in the US, and reached No. 2 in the UK and No. 1 here in Australia – and it was packed with singles! There were five in total, among them was a cover of Robbie Robertson's "Broken Arrow" and a searing rendition of Van Morrison's "Have I Told You Lately" which would become one of Stewart’s best-known tracks when released as a live version on his album Unplugged… and Seated in 1993.

But the album’s two biggest hits in 1991 were the wistful "Rhythm of My Heart" (No. 5 in the US) and his collaboration with The Temptations, "The Motown Song" which came with a music video featuring both a live-action and an animated Rod Stewart with his animated dog.
Celebrating 30 years since Vagabond Heart was released, enjoy those videos below!
