5.0 out of 5 stars Rodney and Woody at their best before Rodney sold out, 16 May 2010
This review is from: The Best Of Faces: Good Boys ... When They're Asleep ... (Audio CD)
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.

Although I am not keen on the American Songbook, I think it unfair to say Rod has "sunk" to imitations of the Big Band singers. At least he has progressed into his older years looking and sounding fantastic, unlike RS who still sound good, but look ridiculous imitating their 20 year old personna.
