The Faces at Paris Theatre 1973 Live at the Paris Theatre, London, Feb 8, 1973.
The Faces were always a great rhythm section looking for a band. When they were the Small Faces, the trio of Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagen and Kenny Jones worked as Steve Marriott’s band, at least that’s what Marriott thought. He left to form Humble Pie and the trio hooked up with Rod Stewart and Ron Wood to form The Faces, dropping the "small". However, Stewart soon loomed large in their stage work.
On this first performance at the Paris Theatre in February of 1973, the Faces had already released three albums since their formation in 1970 and are preparing to tour in support of their latest and final studio album Oh La La. Stewart, as seen in the selection of tracks, was also promoting his solo works which had much better success on the pop charts.
Clearly, Stewart was a star attraction. Savvy with the press and a magnet for cameras and adoring female fans. But the Faces had a special charm for music fans. Their ragged style, loose but right playing and blues roots made them genuine musicians. They were respected as much for their "alcohol" content/ intake.
These Paris Theatre shows broadcast on the radio are exemplary of classic Faces. Excellent sound and never released before
