1970-1975: You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything...
The Small Faces had been heroes of the U.K. mod and psych scenes before lead singer Steve Marriott left to form Humble Pie; Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones recruited two new members to soldier on as Faces. They picked a couple of winners – Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood – and the four Faces studio albums are among the most intoxicating and exuberant of the early 1970s. The new boxed set YOU CAN MAKE ME SING, DANCE OR ANYTHING includes remastered and expanded versions of FIRST STEP, LONG PLAYER, A NOD IS AS GOOD AS A WINK...TO A BLIND HORSE and OOH LA LA plus a disc of stray non-LP sides. There's some overlap with the Faces rarities box of a few years back, but the new collection has unearthed some 15 previously unreleased cuts including outtakes, live, rehearsal and BBC recordings. It's a stirring body of work sure to make you SING, DANCE OR ANYTHING.
