The Faces are to release a new vinyl box set that compiles the band’s four studio albums, as well as a fifth disc of non-LP singles.
As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, ‘1970-1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything’ – which is named after their final single – will also feature a variety of extras, such as outtakes and rehearsal recordings.
The albums are: ‘First Step’ (1970), ‘Long Player’ (1971), ‘A Nod Is as Good as a Wink…to a Blind Horse’ (1971) and ‘Ooh La La’ (1973). The set is due out on August 28.
Having disbanded in 1975, The Faces reunited in 2010 and played a number of shows with Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall on lead vocals in place of original singer Rod Stewart, including a headline performance at the Vintage at Goodwood Festival.
In 2012, Hucknall sang ‘Stay With Me’ at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio. Stewart had planned to perform with the band, but came down with the flu ahead of the event.
In December 2014, keyboardist Ian McLagan died at the age of 69 after suffering a stroke.
