‘Time To Play B-Sides”- “Mandolin Wind”- Rod Stewart. ‘Mandolin Wind” is the b-side to Rod Stewart’s “I Know I”m Losing You” both songs were off of his finest album “Every Picture Tells A Story” in 1971. Where “I Know I’m Losing You” is  a hard rocking cover of a hit originally by The Temptations- “Mandolin Wind”-written by Stewart is a ballad. A mainly acoustic song- the song features a mandolin to great effect. After “Maggie May” I’d say this is the second best song on the album.  Rod’s best album- an excellent mixture of originals and covers. I am not much of a fan of Rod’s from the late 70’s on- but if you don’t own “Every Picture Tells A Story”- do yourself a favor and get it/ give it a listen.
