Faces 1970-1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything... on Limited Edition 180g 5LP Box Set
Featuring Newly Remastered Versions of All 4 Studio Albums with A Bonus Disc of Rarities!
All Remastered from the Original Analog Masters with Packaging Meticulously Recreating the Original Albums!
Faces squeezed a lifetime's worth of rock 'n' roll into just five years. But despite their relatively short time together, Kenney Jones (drums), Ronnie Lane (bass/vocals), Ian McLagan (keyboard), Rod Stewart (vocals) and Ronnie Wood (guitar/vocals) have earned a spot on the short list of the world's greatest rock bands. Despite their hard-partying reputation, the band was a formidable powerhouse and could play it all-blues, soul, funk, country and boogie. Their four studio albums showcased an incredible range from bar stool anthems like "Had Me A Real Good Time," "Miss Judy's Farm," and "Stay With Me," to tender ballads that will leave you crying in your beer like "Ooh La La," "Love Lives Here" and "Glad And Sorry."
Rhino Records is pleased to release a 5LP boxed set with newly remastered versions of all four of the Faces' studio albums - The First Step (1970), Long Player (1971), A Nod Is as Good as a Wink...to a Blind Horse (1971), and Ooh La La (1973) - plus a bonus disc of rarities. The bonus disc gathers up nine essential tracks that didn't appear on proper albums, including the 1973 single "Pool Hall Richard," a live performance of the Temptations' "I Wish It Would Rain" from the 1973 Reading Festival, and "Dishevelment Blues," a song that came free as a flexi-disc in copies of the British music publication, New Music Express.
All of the music has been remastered from the original analog tapes, making the collection the best-sounding version of the band's music ever released. To deliver superior audiophile quality, each album was cut from the original analog master tapes directly to lacquers and pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The records will come packaged in sleeves that accurately recreate the original release. For instance, when you push the sleeve for Ooh La La, the man's eyes move and his mouth opens, creating a look that's reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's animation work with Monty Python.
The Faces came together in 1969 when former Small Faces Ian McLagan, Kenney Jones and Ronnie Lane hooked up with ex-Jeff Beck Group vocalist Rod Stewart and guitarist Ronnie Wood. The group's impact on music has only deepened since its break up in 1975. In recognition of the Faces' vast influence, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted in 2012.
