One of the greatest bands to grace this earth,yet many have never heard of them. Deserve to be uttered in the same breath as the stones, led zeplin abd even the beatles. Biggest band in the world barr none in the early 70's, but with the late great Ronnie Lane writing the songs how could they go wrong. Just a pitty rod Stewart became so big headed and caused the split. If it was not for that, the faces would have there rightful place amongst the other musical greats.
Best of the faces
I had never really listen to the faces until hearing Robert Elms on LBC Radio London talking of them.I downloaded the best of and in fact I have it on while writing this review.
WOW! What a group and what an album.Buy it download it and then play LOUD!!!!! It's fantastic.
Cometh the hour cometh the band. A great Rhino compilation of a true, tv's out of windows, rock and roll band. Rod Stewart was one of the great British blues singers before he found solo fame, success and MOR mediocrity. The Faces standards are here in all their glory (Stay With Me, Ooh La La and Cindy Incidentally) but it is the fragile beauty of the standout Debris which is a real testament to the sincerity and genius that was the late Ronnie Lane. Listen to this and read Mac McLagen's "All the Rage", and envisage what a riot life with the Faces must have been.
