Ah, when Rod wasn't a washed up pop crooner. He had a great 6-7 year run with some serious quality music. Then disco, then pop, then cover albums, then christmas albums, then.......

Hey h8hater, the rock band Pearls Before Swine came before Faces did. Remember?

 
They did indeed.  The lead singer's lisp is killer, but I don't think they rise to the level of the Faces.

Great stuff!

 
I can thank commercial radio for my black out on "Faces."  What a great cut, and with that lineup, the whole band/album must be super.  Ahh, those were the days.

                   Stewart has always been 'good', - he just hasn't always been in the same band as the great Ron Wood.

Long John Baldry does a very haunting rendition of this song on his LP around the same time. I prefer that recording, but yes Rod was really a rocker then and a soulful and energetic performer!

 
Agreed

I remember - 
"Can we have less lights now that we know the words?"
or something like that from the opening of the LJB version...

Said it before and I'll say it again - there is such a nice "sweet spot" in Rock & Roll from approx. 1968 to 1973.

I think he would even agree with you at this point while he writes another alimony check.

I feel the same way, never heard this version before but I've always liked John Baldry's version.

Only 6.8 for this amazing rocker!?!  A foundation stone upon which the house of Rock is built.

Rod Stewart at his best with the Faces, unlike the garbage he did by himself.  Akin to Steve Miller with and without Boz Scaggs.  Well, really never liked Boz Scaggs sans Steve Miller either.  Always seemed like he was wearing his leisure suit in his quasi-disco days.
