Inseparables Separated

For about four years, Rod Stewart and Faces put out alternating albums (which for most folks were from the same rock factory). Well crafted records (unlike their booze-filled, rambunctious stage appearances) that featured great songs. These are the last two great offerings.

Rod's album featured excellent readings of Dylan's Mama You Been On My Mind, Sam Cooke's Twistin' The Night Away and Jimi's Angel. Tasty stuff, indeed

The Faces disc was (as usual) much brasher and included Woody singin' fer ya. When Rod The Mod stated in concurrent interviews that he thought the album sucked—well that was pretty much the end of that partnership. One crappy live Faces album followed (with a new bassist, after Ronnie Lane quit) and Rod went about his solo ways.
