A Nod Is As Good As A Wink

Our Price: $69.99

  • Two outstanding Double Plus (A++) sides mean The Faces' British Blues Rock is alive and well on this vintage all analog pressing
  • Rich and solid, yet fairly spacious and transparent, this early Green Label pressing did well in our shootout by having a combination of weight and clarity that really worked for us
  • 5 stars: The Faces' third album finally gave the group their long-awaited hit single in "Stay with Me," helping send the album into the Billboard Top Ten... [It's] the tightest record the band ever made. It's another classic — and when you consider that the band also had Long Player to their credit and had their hands all over Every Picture in 1971, it's hard to imagine another band or singer having a year more extraordinary as this."

The title song, authored by Mark James (who'd previously written "Suspicious Minds"), was just about as good a single as Elvis released in the 1970s, topping the country charts earlier in 1977; additionally, he did a superb reinterpretation of the George Jones hit "She Thinks I Still Care.""

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Their second album - largely composed of Robert Fripp's songwriting and material from their stage repertory - is actually better produced and better sounding than their first. Surprisingly, Fripp's guitar is not the dominant instrument here: The Mellotron, taken over by Fripp - and played even better than before - still remains the band's signature."
