“A Nod Is As Good As A Wink... To A Blind Horse” by Faces - album review

TJR says

Third album from the London five-piece who lined up: Rod Stewart (lead vocals, harmonica), Ronnie Lane (bass, acoustic guitar, percussion, vocals), Ronnie Wood (lead, slide, acoustic and pedal steel guitars, harmonica), Ian McLagan (piano, organ) and Kenney Jones (drums, percussion). “Maggie May” had just given Rod a solo number one hit, and the band benefitted from this. With the world's spotlight firmly upon them, this set went Top 10 in both the UK and the US. The best two tracks are the raunchy ones - “Stay With Me” which closes side one and “That's All You Need” which is deeper and dirtier again at the close of the set.
