Me Me Me
There have been rumors of a full-fledged Faces reunion for a long time now, and I think Rod Stewart has been talking about it again. Seems like a bad idea! Not only is Ronnie Lane long gone, but the remaining (and sober) Faces could never conjure up the magic of their gloriously drunken prime. Here’s a show from right at the beginning, October 28, 1970, at the Fillmore West that fully demonstrates that magic. It’s so early, in fact, that Bill Graham introduces them as the Small Faces. Nothing small about them here, though, they sound positively gigantic. The band starts things off with a slow burner, “Devotion,” but mainly they just do the full-tilt boogie for the remainder of the set. One thing that strikes me here is how absolutely awesome a guitar player Ronnie Wood used to be — check him out on the stomping “Around The Plynth” or the righteously chooglin’ “You’re My Girl.” Anyway, this is an extremely fun gig, classic rock at its finest.
Holy cats this is terrific!
The unlikely line-up of Pete Townshend, Mick Karn, Midge Ure, and Phil Collins kill it here.
