Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

When Steve Marriott left the Small Faces in 1969, the three remaining members brought in guitarist Ron Wood and lead singer Rod Stewart to complete the lineup and changed their name to the Faces, which was only appropriate since the group now only slightly resembled the mod-pop group of the past. Instead, the Faces were a rough, sloppy rock & roll ... Read more in Amazon's Faces Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Best known for their alumni (Rod Stewart, the Stones' Ron Wood, the Who's Kenny Jones), the Faces' brief early 1970s run was as musically rewarding as it was boozy and sideshow spectacular. A revamped, bluesier edition of '60s English pop notables the Small Faces, the Faces established a rollicking musical identity that threatened to overshadow the Stones at their own game. Though the group dissolved under the pressures of Stewart's burgeoning solo career and Wood's recruitment into comfortable career Stonedom, the Faces were about much more than just individual talents. The folksy vulnerability of the late bassist, songwriter, and vocalist Ronnie Lane (well-represented here by "Debris" and "Ooh La La") kept the lads close to roots both geographical and class, while keyboardist Ian McLagen alternated between barrelhouse-boogie and Hammond B-3 soulfulness and Jones loosely locked into irresistible grooves. They could pillage Motown ("Three Button Hand Me Down") and Chuck Berry ("Cindy Incidentally") for riffs, and turn from countrified blues ("Sweet Lady Mary") to the breakneck boogie of "Too Bad" in a heartbeat. They may have been cheated of hits, but the Faces' music remains warm, heartfelt, and enthusiastic--a legacy that's aged much better than the cheap hootch they once drowned themselves in. --Jerry McCulley

This is a superb album for those who have only heard "Stay With Me". It has complimentary rockers like "Bad 'n' Ruin" and especially "Too Bad", but also the softer Ronnie Lane songs like "Debris".

It's got that Stonesy, tight-but-loose, early 70's feel to it, but with a good time vibe instead of the undercurrent of menace that the Stones albums of the same era had.

Well worth buying to remind you that Rod was once great (see also "Every Picture Tells A Story") and that Ronnie Lane's stuff is well worth seeking out.

Best of the Faces as a title speaks volumes Rod and Woody were always in the limelight but Ian Maclagan is a fantastic keyboard player up there with Jools now when Jools was just a nipper , Kenny Jones and Ronnie Lane probably one of the best rhythmn sections going together they had edsge and this compilation reflects that . Really don't know what caused the rift some say Britt Eckland who knows but Rod sold out and has slowly sunk to what he is now a shallow imitation of Sinatra , Tony Bennett , Dean Martin peddling second rate versions of the Great American Songbook .

I was quite excited to hear that Woody was trying to organise a reunion tour but when Rod said no I guess they decided bad idea plus of course the great Ronnie Lane is sadly no longer with us . If they change their mind and Rod still says no then look no further than Paul Rodgers who can get further street cred back after the disaasterous Queen escapade despite his recent return to form gigs.

Buy this album it covers a band who were an icon in their era which grew from the Small Faces , an icon of the 60s , and before Rod became a sad shadow of former glories in the noughties.

Not actually listened to this album, but as a Faces fan I bought all the albums and know 80% of the tracks listed here.
The blues background of the Faces is borne out by tracks such as "Wicked Messenger", "Miss Judy's Farm" and "Borstal Boys", but Rod's agenda comes out with "Sweet Lady Mary" (readers may recall that he had a solo career running in parallel). The 'laddish' culture is inherent in "Three Button Hand Me Down", "Had Me A Real Good Time", "Stay With Me", "Too Bad" and "Ooh La La" (Ronnie Wood on vox). There's even room for a bit of jealousy in "Pool Hall Richard".
I was very disappointed by the exclusion of the well-worked "I Wish It Would Rain" (flip to "Pool Hall Richard"), especially as other 'B' sides ("Debris") made it. "Maybe I'm Amazed" (from their "Long Player" album) wouldn't have gone amiss, either.
There is always "this should have been included", but the tracks that ARE on this album represent an excellent collection.
It all fell apart in the end with the three main songwriters secretly wanting to do different things - Lane wanted to be more folksy, Wood wanted to join the Rolling Stones and Stewart wanted to write romantic ballads. Jones joined The Who, but that was much later, as was McLagan's sessions with the Stones.
Interesting to note that although they produced two good singles after Lane, who quit nearly a year before the end, there were no more studio albums.

Now as a live band in a small pub they were something special. I still remember fondly the night at some small South London pub, the Red Cow or some such moniker, where Mr Stewart knocked out Mr Jones with the base of the microphone stand and Mr McLagan, bless him, revived the drummer with a pint of beer and not a note was lost in some bar room busting ballad. The sixty of us crammed into a small room went home happy! However, the albums, all scratched vinyl promised as much but somehow never quite delivered. Unlike Mr Stewart, the band's live exhuberance did not seem to translate in what came out of the studio. So when I picked this up, I was not expecting much like. Pause for reflection of how wrong I was. It is like the live sound captured and handed down and playing like the bunch of lads they were. Good time, rock and roll type music with enough Lunon in it to make it Brit rather than American. Yeah, I know Rod was from further north then me but he did have a try out for Brentford, he's not all tartan scarves and undies! Its a good mix of the ballads "Sweet Lady Mary" and the stomping "Stay With me" and all ports in-between. A worthy five star purchase for the BG collection

A mate emailed me a copy of of Ooh La La about a year before we headed down to play cricket at the Alice Springs Masters Games, with the message "How good would this be for a team Walk-Out song?" The two Ronnies (Lane & Wood) probably never imagined when they penned it that a bunch of Aussie "old-fart" cricketers would proudly stride out to the middle with this brilliant song echoing around the MacDonald ranges in the central Australian outback!

So on the strength of one song; incidentally sung by Ronnie Wood and not Ronnie Lane or Rod Stewart; I bought this album. Yes, I'd heard a few tracks back in the 70's by the band and recognized a few track names on the site, but to be honest I only bought it because the compilation box-set of "Red Dwarf" was on special at the same time.

The best way I can recommend this album to anyone contemplating whether or not to go ahead and buy it, is to compare it to a really good take-away curry. Enjoyed it the first time you got into it and the next day the left-overs tasted even better. By the fourth listen you will truly appreciate the fact you've got something that will stay with you forever and not a dud you'll be attempting to break the world frisbee throwing record with at the local dump!

This was the beginning of some very talented musicians plying their trade with genuine skill and unbridled conviction. ENJOY!
