In October 1963, Stewart joined the Dimensions as a harmonica player and part time vocalist, then in 1964 he joined Long John Baldry and the All Stars and in August Stewart signed a solo contract, releasing his first single “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl” in October. Stewart maintained a solo career alongside a group career, releasing his debut solo album, An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down (US: The Rod Stewart Album) in 1969. Stewart’s early albums were a fusion of rock, folk music, soul music and R&B.
