Stunning sounds from one of the greatest groups of all time – the mighty Faces
, served up here in a killer package that includes their four
full albums, plus never-issued bonus tracks – and a whole bonus CD of singles and b-sides! The group is the stuff of legend – a boozy, balls-out quintet that features a young Rod Stewart on vocals – sounding rawer than on most of his own great records – plus Ronnie Wood on guitar and Ronnie Laine on bass – as well as other remaining members of the Small Faces
– a killer lineup that was tight, right, and ready to go from their very first note – and served up this brilliant flurry of music in their all-too-short time together! The package features all the records in small LP-styled sleeves – The First Step, Long Player, Nod Is As Good As A Wink, and Ooh La La – all with never-issued bonus tracks that include "Behind The Sun (outtake)", "Mona The Blues (outtake)", "Shake Shudder Shiver (BBC)", "Flying (take 3", "Miss Judy's Farm (BBC)", "Sham Mozzal (inst outtake)", "Whole Lotta Woman (outtake)", "Too Much Woman (live)", "Silicone Grown (rehearsal)", "Glad & Sorry (rehearsal)", "Jealous Guy (live)", "Borstal Boys (rehearsal)", "Stay With Me (BBC)", and "Cindy Incidentally (BBC)" – quite a lot of unissued tracks, really, given the amount of other rare material that was on their Five Guys box set! Then, the final CD features 9 more singles and b-sides – including "Pool Hall Richard", "Rear Wheel Skid", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Oh Lord I'm Browned Off", "I Wish It Would Rain (with a trumpet)", "You Can Make Me Dance Sing Or Anything (UK single version)", "As Long As You Tell Him", "Skewiff", and "Dishevelment Blues".
