When in 1971 the world discovered "Every Picture Tells A Story" and "A Nod's As Good As A Wink", those of us who found "their band" in the face of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bowie et al peer pressure, were gratified in the pleasure of discovering the "back catalogue". Prior to "Nod", the Faces threw together the logically titled "Long Player" (long playing records being the thing in those days you see) and there was gold discovered in them there record stores! Like you do when you "get right into" a newly discovered band or artist, you want to hear everything and here was one that we should have known but didn't and wondered where we'd been. From the opening strains of the Stewart/McLagan "Bad 'n' Ruin" ("mother you won't recognise me now", what more could an adolescent need!) through the poignient Ronnie Lane "Tell Everyone" and shared "Sweet Lady Mary" to the excellent live cover of McArtney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" (some commentators drawing similarity in the opening bars sung by Ronnie Lane and the great Macca himself!) here was an album that a faceless cover belied. The roots were showing in the live 'n' rollicking cover of Bill Broonzy's "I Feel So Good" but it was good times and rock'n'roll that the Faces came for and did not disappoint with "Had Me A Real Good Time". We were glad they'd come and were so sad they'd leave but while they were here they gave us a real good time! And boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, for the singularly inexpensive price of this CD, still can!
