Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

When Steve Marriott left the Small Faces in 1969, the three remaining members brought in guitarist Ron Wood and lead singer Rod Stewart to complete the lineup and changed their name to the Faces, which was only appropriate since the group now only slightly resembled the mod-pop group of the past. Instead, the Faces were a rough, sloppy rock & roll ... Read more in Amazon's Faces Store

'Had Me A Real Good Time' seems to be a rock and roll piece.
Burak Alkan
If you recently bought Best of the Faces: Good Boys When They're Asleep and want more, this is your next stop.
Steve Vrana
It is easily one of the greatest hard rock/rock n roll songs of all time.

This is the album where the Faces came into their own as a band. After the breakup of the Small Faces and the recording of the Faces' debut "First Step" in 1970, Rons Lane and Wood, Kenny Jones, Ian McLagan and frontman Rod Stewart emerged with the first of the two best albums of their all too short career--the other being the equally excellent "A Nod Is as Good as a Wink..."
While there's plenty here for fans of Rod the Mod to enjoy [including a stunning live version of Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed," which had to leave Sir Paul slack-jawed after hearing it!], the real treasures are Ronnie Lane's contributions: the folkish "Richmond" and the ballad "Tell Everyone," the very type of songs Lane would make a career out of after leaving the Faces only two years after this 1971 release.
If you recently bought Best of the Faces: Good Boys When They're Asleep and want more, this is your next stop. Then get "A Nod Is As Good As a Wink." And then shake your head that there are so few artists out there today who can match the ballsy rock 'n' roll of the Faces.

The warmth and self-depricating humor of A NOD'S AS GOOD AS A WINK TO A BLIND HORSE has always made it my favorite Faces LP, but the swagger and jammy feeling of LONG PLAYER puts it close to the top of the list as well.
On LONG PLAYER the Faces sound more bluesy, more British (as opposed to the Irish tilt of A NOD'S AS GOOD AS A WINK...) and at times more like Rod Stewart's handpicked touring band. Ronnie Lane stands out with a couple of great tunes, a shared vocal with Rod on a great cover of McCartney's classic "Maybe I'm Amazed," and his always wonderful bass, the spine of all Faces records.
This was back in the days when Rod Stewart still had some soul and could sing English Folk, Rock, R&B and Pub tunes all on the same album without missing a step. He's in fine form here, as he was on most Faces records, all his Jeff Beck stuff and all of his own stuff right up to FOOT LOOSE & FANCY FREE. He couldn't pull off a fun-time gem like "Had Me A Real Good Time" today to save his life; it remains one of my all-time favorite Faces tunes.
You can't go wrong with any FACES LP, and LONG PLAYER is definitely in the upper tier.

The Faces' second album from 1971 is better than their somewhat unfocused debut album, and almost on par with 1972's "A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse".

It's a little bit of a mixed bag, with two live numbers, some hard rock, and a couple of tender ballads. Rod Stewart sings one of them, the charming "Tell Everyone", and Ronnie Lane takes a lead vocal on the other, the country-ish "Richmond", but both of them are penned by Lane, the band's excellent "ballad writer".
A live rendition of Big Bill Broonzy's "I Feel So Good" is good but much too long at almost nine minutes, but the other live number, a gritty take on Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" is really great, as is the folkish "Sweet Lady Mary" and the delightful, tough rocker "Had Me A Real Good Time".
"Long Player" is a bit of a sloppy affair, and it does have a couple of weak moments, but it still captures what the Faces were all about, from the opening riff-rocker "Bad 'N' Ruin" to the closing instrumental, Ronnie Wood's rendition of Sir Henry Wood's "Jerusalem".
3 3/4 stars. Nice.

The Faces were sloppy. The party obviously followed them off stage and into the recording studio. Thank God.

"Long Player" may not be their best album, but who cares. Bluesy licks? Got it. Hammond organ? Got it? Rod Stewart back when he was ROD F'N STEWART? Got it. Ronnie Wood before he was a marginalized sidekick? Got it.

Buy. Listen. Enjoy.

I remember seeing this album in the bargain bin in the early 1990's and seeing Ron Wood, I thought it might be good, but was perplexed as to what the hell Rod Stewart was doing there. When I played "Bad N Ruin," I was blown away. It is easily one of the greatest hard rock/rock n roll songs of all time. I then ventured into more Rod Stewart and Faces albums from 1969-1972. Yes, he was that good. Yes, he sucks now. But, to his credit, he did leave a lot of great music in those brief four years (four Faces albums and four solo albums). I recommend getting all eight (and Jeff Beck's truth). Had they continued in this style, I am fully confident they would have eclipsed the mighty Stones.

After their first album went mostly unnoticed by critics and public alike, Faces began to tour heavily and their popularity soared. This is when they went into the studio to record their second album, Long Player. An uneven affair but it's got its charm.

The first track, Bad'n'Ruin, is a midtempo rocker, not as loud as the ones that open their next (and last) two albums. It's a good song with some room for Kenny Jones, Ian McLagan and Ronnie Wood to show off.

Tell Everyone is one of the best ballads ever, written by Lane though it's Rod Stewart who sings it. Over a simple drum beat and piano and soft guitar Rod sings a lyric about love and waking up with your loved one beside you.. While not a very original lyric, the musical landscape actually makes it a gorgeous song.

Sweet Lady Mary is a country/folk song, similar to some stuff to be found in Stewart's discography back then. Kenny Jones doesn't play on this one. The music here is Hammond organ, acoustic guitar and pedal steel guitar. Rod sings it one more time.

Richmond is an acoustic blues song, only feauting its writer - Ronnie Lane. Another gorgeous song. One wonders where all these people would have been were it not for the great bluesmen.

Maybe I'm Amazed is a Paul McCartney song, recorded live in New York, that puts the original to shame. Here Lane and Stewart share lead vocals.

Had Me A Real Good Time is another of the few rockers to grace this album. I dig it but feels uncomplete despite its almost 6 minutes running time. A guitar solo would sure have helped. Instead we have the only appearance of a horn section in a Faces album, something we can all be grateful for.

On The Beach is the only turkey on the cd.
