Rod Stewart & The Faces: Live Coast To Coast/Overture And Beginners (Mercury)

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 19 January 1974

LADIES AND gentlemen, a study in disintegration.

When the Faces began their current incarnation, their boozy looseness helped to add some riotous vibes to a tight, powerful, hell-for-leather set. Just an extra little something to liven up the act, kind of like a rock and roll Dean Martin.
