|FACES YOU CAN MAKE ME DANCE, SING OR ANYTHING 1970-1975 Limited 180gram 5LP Box Set
The Faces squeezed a lifetime’s worth of rock ’n’ roll into just five years. But despite their relatively short time together, Kenney Jones (drums), Ronnie Lane (bass/vocals), Ian McLagan (keyboard), Rod Stewart (vocals) and Ronnie Wood (guitar/vocals) have earned a spot on the short list of the world’s greatest rock bands.
This brand new boxed set features newly remastered versions of all four of the Faces’ studio albums, plus a bonus disc of rarities. All of the music has been remastered from the original analog tapes and approved by the surviving band members. Without a doubt, this is the best-sounding version of the band’s music ever released.
The limited edition vinyl version YOU CAN MAKE ME DANCE, SING OR ANYTHING (1970-1975) LP set includes: The First Step (1970), Long Player (1971), A Nod Is as Good as a Wink…to a Blind Horse (1971), Ooh La La (1973) along with the bonus disc from the CD set. To deliver superior audiophile quality, each album was cut from the original analog master tapes directly to lacquers and pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The records will come packaged in sleeves that accurately recreate the original release. For instance, when you push the sleeve for Ooh La La, the man’s eyes move and his mouth opens, creating a look that’s reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s animation work with Monty Python.
In addition to the studio albums, the collection also features a bonus disc that gathers up nine essentials tracks that didn’t appear on proper albums, including the 1973 single “Pool Hall Richard,” a live performance of the Temptations’ “I Wish It Would Rain” from the 1973 Reading Festival, and “Dishevelment Blues,” a song that came free as a flexi-disc in copies of the British music publication, New Music Express.
