Description

Propelled by a nifty little guitar from Wood and a catchy chorus, 'Bad In Ruin' was one of their better, if overlooked rockers. Unfortunately they never got much airplay in the States in their time and they were shamefully overlooked. The percussion free Sweet Lady Mary is even better, one of The Faces’ best songs, uneventful across its near-six minutes but terrific anyway thanks to the relaxing vibe created by McLagan’s subtle organ and Wood’s beguiling pedal steel. The awful Wood/Lane composition "On The Beach" follows and when one considers that within months they would deliver the magnificent "A Nod's As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse" album, what possessed them to record this ? In 1975 Wood began working with the Rolling Stones, which brought differences between Stewart and the others to a head, and after a troubled fall US tour (with Jesse Ed Davis on rhythm guitar), in December the band announced that they were splitting.

Recorded during an era in which many albums were knocked off in a matter of weeks, the group's sophomore set took months to finish — including plenty of downtime that didn't really do any favors for the infamously rowdy quartet. the following year, a live album was released, entitled Coast to Coast: Overture and Beginners ; it was criticised by reviewers for being poorly recorded and thought out. After introducing themselves with 1970's appropriately titled First Step, the Faces sought to build on that success with their follow-up effort — and they pulled it off in a big way with Long Player. There was also a Small Faces reunion in the late 1970s (without Ronnie Lane) that resulted in two albums; and in 1981 Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott collaborated on the album The Legendary Majik Mijits.The main problem was that we could never get that sound and feeling in the studio that we got on stage," he lamented in Had Me a Real Good Time.

In the midst of all this activity, they'd reconvene later in the year to record their next effort, A Nod Is As Good As a Wink . This track presents a lovely take on the well-known song, infusing it with a mellow jazz vibe that showcases Graulund’s musical talent. Stewart sounded pretty good on this one getting the audience involved in the song, as did the recent of the band (who were all given solo spots), but stretching it our\t to just short of nine minutes didn't do anyone any favors. Music is highly subjective to each individuals taste so trying to rate this as the best "Faces" album is just silly!A unique early mix of "Had Me a Real Good Time" appeared as a single ahead of the LP in November 1970, backed with the non-album instrumental "Rear Wheel Skid". If your a lover of Classic rock I would strongly recommend just getting all 4 "Faces" album's they are all just that good! This will be so special for us, staging a reunion for such a wonderful and prestigious event," said Ronnie Wood when the announcement of the concert was made. Ronnie puffing like a blowfish, ambled backwards and forwards across the stage in his characteristic ‘Ronnie Lane Shuffle’ laying down the solid and melodic bass lines that were the foundation to all of our songs, and singing so sweetly. Even for a group whose boozy looseness was part of their charm, Long Player wasn't anywhere near as cohesive as it should have been.
