I've always like listening to the Faces and look forward to what they have in store for this time around. You just can't go wrong with old time Rock N Roll.
Thanks @Jazfunk for posting.....
@rcgp2020 I remember buying "A Nod Is As Good As A Wink From A Blind Horse" by the Faces and Rod Stewart had an album to come out about the same time. Wasn't it "Every Picture Tells A Story"?
Anyway I bought both and they were the same band on both if I remember right. The Faces album had Ronnie Lane singing lead on a couple of songs and the rest had Rod Stewart and of course Rod sang all of them on his solo album. It was fun to play them back to back at a party. Most people thought it was one album with 2 discs.
Update! I just checked Every Picture Tells A Story. The members of the Faces in 1971 appear on Rod's album but not on every track. Ronnie Wood co-wrote a song and Ronnie Lane sings back up on a track and plays bass here and there.
I bought this single in 1967. I was 21 years old. It was on the radio often. It was a huge hit. Found out later Steve Marriott is the lead singer and Ronnie Lane sings additional vocals. Steve is on guitar and Ronnie is on bass.
Steve Marriott went on to form Humble Pie. I saw them live twice. Good band. I think Steve was drunk and snorted cocaine plus took some Valium for flight fright. He had just flown from New York to London and went to eat in London, consumed a lot of liquor then went home, lit a cigarette, suffering from jet lag, fell asleep immediately and set his place on fire and died at something like age 41. Sad ending for a great singer and guitarist. Rod Stewart and Paul Rogers both said he was one of the best UK singers of rock music.
Here he is singing lead and Ronnie Lane on bass also singing. This was a big hit in 1967.
This was a great group back in the day.
I recently read Kenny Jones Bio. Great piece to read that takes you on the journey of how the group actually got it's start.
Ronnie Lane left us way too soon, and the music world is not the same with-out Steve Marriott either in my opinion. I spun that 45 until I wore it out. What a tune!, I would have been a mere 8 years old back then. How the times changed..
thats news i didn't expect for sure
Ron Wood sings this one! Ooh La La!!
my take away from the article is that he and Mick Taylor did a tribute album to Jimmy Reed... sign me up!
