The Faces, were probably one of the best live bands ever,so speaks a fan.
They fitted the time period that they were in.A good time, lots of alcohol, and a good laugh to boot, was always on the books.
Unfortunately due to Rod Stewart's solo success,there were always going to be big internal pressures.
Ronnie Lane,clearly felt that Rod was spending more time and effort in his records and less on the Faces recordings.
The final album Ooh La La,clearly showed that,it was short, had little of the life of A Nods as Good as a Wink,and frankly had little of Rod's vocals.
I personally loved the album,even though Ronnie Lane could never sing, BUT WHAT A SONG WRITER.
Ronnie Lane should have been acknowledged for the talent he was,his lyrics were from the heart and full of pathos. Sadly he became ill and passed away, he never really got the credit he deserved.
This album is interesting just for the live Gasoline Alley, Love in Vain and the wonderful Too much woman for a henpecked man tracks.
Gasoline Alley was always a favourite track of mine,although I only heard the Faces do it once.
The other tracks most Faces fans will have. I bought it just for the three live tracks, however, I downloaded it onto my I pod, so that I can re live my childhood.
Best of all at a tenner for two cd's its good value.

This is a fine collection of songs from the albums and singles recorded in the seventies by The Faces.Rod Stewart,Ronnie Wood,Ronnie Lane,Ian Maclagen and Kenny Jones brought their drunken fun loving style to the songs.It was a match made in a pub rather than Heaven as Steve Marriott left The small Faces to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton.A new guitarist was found in Ronnie Wood from The jeff Beck Group who happened to bring his singing pal,Rod Stewart from Jeffs hard rock combo.
Rod also has a solo career going and some of his finest songs such as Maggie May appeared on the solo stuff,whilst the band stuff went along hand in hand.This was not just Rod and backing band,however.Ronnie Woods guitarwork got better and better and Ronnie Lane continued his charming songwriting as Rod sang about having a real good time.

FIRST SAW STEWART WHEN HE WAS A MEMBER OF STEAM PACKET NEARLY 50 YRS AGO, GREAT VOICE THEN & STILL HAS IT ON THIS ANTHOLOGY. LOST HIS WAY A BIT NOW WITH ALL THIS LOUNGE SINGER STUFF, SHOULD STICK WITH THE BLUES /ROCK. SOME GREAT STANDOUT TRACKS ON HERE THOU,ESPECIALLY THE BLUESY STUFF,BUT THEIR ALL PRETTY UP THERE. D BOOKER

To me at age 55 this was and still is the best band ever in the world, with there array of different styles of music being soft or raunchy, there all here on this cd, rod stewart vocals are superb best singer ever in the earl 70s no one could sing like him , with Ron , Ian , Kenny & the lovely Ronnie strutting there stuff with him and the odd drink or two serves up a mixture of fast and slow songs, debris is a classic saying that they all are buy it !

36 remastered tracks from the Faces. If you are not a completist and don't necessarily want to buy all of the albums then this is perfect. Much better than the single CD compilation from a few years back.
To be honest, if it's got "Ooh la la" and "Debris" on it it's going to get 5 stars from me.

Forgot what a great band these guys were. What a terrific collection of their best stuff to jog the memory! £10 - It's a no brainer - buy it and relive the boys in all their glory!

Some of the unreleased tracks are worth the purchase on there own.

A good mixture of Pop-rock and blues, Rod Stewart at his best.

I was satisfied with the prompt delivery and the quality of the music. Real classics, played by one of the best bands ever.
