The great "Cindy Incidentally" must be a very well done rip-off of "I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met" ---not the Another Side version, but the live version (which they must have heard).

"Glad and Sorry"...greatest song ever?



Thank you kindly
For thinking of me
If I'm not smiling
I'm just thinking

Glad and sorry
Happy or sad
When all is done and spoken
You're up or I'm down

Can you show me a dream
Can you show me one that's better than life
Can you stand it in the cold light of day
Neither can I

One of my favorite songs. So, so great.

To me, the best Faces album is the 3-disc BBC boot. Their studio stuff is OK, but they were way better live.

Well we agree on this anyway!

Yeah, Cindy Incidentally is totally ripped off from Dylan - Stewart would certainly have known it, as would Ronnie Wood from the 'Albert Hall' boots.

Love the Faces. You NEED to get Ooh La La on vinyl for the cover if you don't have it! Laughing

I love Ooh La La - side 2 is almost perfection. Also contains one of the few references to part of the East End of London not far from here - in 'If i'm on the late side' he mentions walking from Maryland to Silvertown - this doesn't refer to the USA, but a walk from a place near Stratford to the Tate & Lyle sugar factory down by the Thames.

Shame they blew up after Lane went. Sad.

I'd say their studio stuff is great and their live stuff unbelievable.

"Five Guys Walk into a Bar" gets more stereo time than any other box I own. And I've probably drank a few swimming pools full of beer while listening to it, too.

And you know what I also really miss? The Ronnie Wood Faces guitar sound that disappeared when he joined the Stones - that bright metallic fuzzy gurgle that IS the sound of the Faces, more so than Rod's voice.

I love that sound (and of course on the three great Stewart albums it appears on too...).

And Ronnie Lane's songs. I love Debris more than anything they did, along with his songs on Ooh La La. Wonderful.

There is a wonderful song that appears on the Mahoney's Last Stand soundtrack that the two Ronnies did and that also appeared on Townshend's third Meher Baba album called 'Just For a Moment' that most of you probably won't have heard (apart from Ian i assume! Laughing ). I'll post it later.

Youtube the Faces, there's really great stuff on there including a rippin Cindy Incidently and an even more rippin Stay With Me.
