Today’s Sunday Session is an amazing performance by The Faces at the height of their power in 1971. This performance was captured on BBC as part of their Sounds For Saturday series. This particular video is from a rebroadcast of the concert on VH1 Classic and features an introduction by Glenn Tilbrook. This is a particularly tight set by a group that was always entertaining but not necessarily always tight. The set list is provided below…..I think you will really enjoy the performance!
Three Button Hand Me Down
Maybe I’m Amazed
Too Much Woman
Street Fighting Man
Too Much Woman
Miss Judy’s Farm
Love In Vain
Stay With Me
I think you will like this one. Some great footage of The Faces relaxing in 1970……this is classic stuff!
If you enjoyed this one be sure to check back on Sunday for a great 1971 concert by The Faces.
The Original (Paul McCartney)
The Cover (The Faces)
With no disrespect to Paul McCartney, I love the Faces 1972 cover of his first solo record. The cover serves to reminds us of: what a powerhouse the Faces were as a band; what a great musician/singer Ronnie Lane was; and what a tragedy it is that we lost him way too early to MS. Of course Rod’s performance is great as usual.
Speaking of losing Ronnie to MS, you might not be aware that Rod, Ronnie Word, and Jimmy Page paid his medical bills for years. Rod and Ronnie Wood also donated all of their Faces royalties to Ronnie once he got sick. Musician’s take care of their own and we all have to respect that. As always let me know that you think.
