Jan and SMILER convinced Rod to do another album

His words not ours!

posted by Mike Walton

Back in May 2013 SMILER member Jan kittelsen from Norway contacted us to say he wanted other SMILER members to send him some personal reviews of Rod's Time album, The SMILER team thought it was a great idea and started to spread the word, Jan compiled the reviews and had them made into a hard backed book that was presented to Rod.

Rod loved it but as only a couple of copies were made we could not show it to all the members that contributed, so with Jan's help we took the reviews and added some members reviews of the tour and produced the hugely successful '2013 A VINTAGE ROD YEAR' book that Rod also loved.

In today's Miami Herald Rod was still singing the praises of the original book that blew him away...

“I had this tremendous book all my fans put together with their personal views of how much they enjoyed the Time album, and it brought tears to my eyes that they’d bother to do that. So I said I will knock them over with the next one and I had a few ideas cooking about.”

Rod's brother Don also loved the book saying "My first chance to look at the book, was the first time that both Rod and Penny perused it. All three of us thought the book was excellent, both in content and quality, Penny remarked on some great pictures, whilst Rod was quietly pleased with the very complimentary comments made about his CD. As for myself, the book is now a vital and important part of my brothers memorabilia".
