OTD August 14 - Rod Stewart
10 / 31
Mercury Records

1971: Rod Stewart's solo debut single "Maggie May" hits the charts. The song was originally the B-side to "Reason to Believe," but DJs became fonder of the B-side and, after two weeks on the charts, the song was reclassified, with "Maggie May" becoming the A-side.
