'Good Boys... When They're Asleep: The Best Of The Faces'
(Warner Bros advance CD) ***** If you believe that The Wildhearts were the last word in British rock 'n' roll excess, then meet the band who helped write the book. Loud, lewd, !airy, uncontrollable, snotty The Faces were all of these, Yet they also wrote and performed some of the most vital, eclectic, blues-fired music of the early '705, leaving a legacy of recordings that gloriously stands the test of time.
Built around the turbine genius of Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and Ronnie Lane,The Faces were equally capable of clicking into a rock 'n' roll groove, a late night smoke-fuelled ballad, or a kicking blowsy anthem. This 19-track compilation the band's first in nearly two decades doesn't contain any real surprises (apart from 'Pool Hall Richard; which has never been on a studio album before), but how can you go wrong with a list of songs that includes 'Sweet Lady Mary;'Miss Judy's Farm; 'Stay With Me' and 'Cindy Incidentally'? Answer: you can't! Malcolm Dome
