About this deal

The album kicks off with the great boogie track Bad 'n' Ruin which at a minimum will have you tapping your toes. They were clearly superstars, but the arrogance you'd normally associate with such a band was largely absent. Very Good: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. This album is good, not brilliant but, shows lots of potential and was soon to be eclipsed by "A Nod's As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse" which WAS the pinnacle of their short-lived success and life as a band. instead, more of a happy surprise when you just have your collection on a shuffle, or one of those "wow, haven't heard this in a while" kind of things.

It should also be borne in mind that this was the first of two albums recorded by the band in 1971 - "A Nod's As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse" following relatively soon afterwards. Indeed, it slows down in the bridge to sound all the more like a Stax song before ending with an archetypal Faces finish. Although Stewart's vocals were arguably the most immediately identifiable aspect of the Faces' sound, the band didn't really have a leader, per se — their distinct chemistry was wholly dependent on each member's equal contributions, and they functioned, more or less, as a creative democracy.As debut albums go, it’s strong, make no mistake about that, but it’s not until the band’s second album that they truly found their groove. They recorded a few tracks for another studio album, but had lost enthusiasm and their final release as a group was the late 1974 UK Top 20 hit " You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything". The same line-up reunited once more (minus Lane) in 1993 when Rod Stewart was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award at the Brit Awards. When it comes to the Faces, the band’s first album should be viewed through the prism of its title: FIRST STEP. On August 28, 2015, the album was reissued in remastered form on vinyl, and remastered and expanded on CD as part of the box set (along with the rest of the Faces catalogue of studio recordings) 1970–1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything.

Nothing entirely essential, but the Faces are seeming more like a group that is just sorta acceptable to have nestled within your collection. Jones joined the Who after the death of Keith Moon ; [12] McLagan stated in a 2004 interview that Townshend also asked him to join the Who, but he had already promised Keith Richards that he would tour as a Rolling Stones sideman. The band get really mellow next on the country ballad "Sweet Lady Mary" (Wood/Stewart/Lane) where Wood shows what a really sound and melodic exponent of pedal steel guitar he was whilst in The Faces. Meanwhile, "Woody was the guy's guy, with a cigarette stuck in his mouth or between the fingers of his right fist, eyes blinking continually with concentration as he worried the guitar, and sang and camped it up with Rod. On 25 May 2010, it was announced that the Faces had officially reformed with Hucknall taking on vocal duties, and Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols on bass.For Lane, the technical difficulties were only part of what ultimately kept Long Player from working as well as it should have.
