Wolfgang’s Spotlight – Faces ’73

faces73.jpgRemember when Rod Stewart’s “Unplugged … and Seated!” CD came out? It was a great record because he reunited with Ron Wood and stuck mostly to music from their time together in the Faces.

That was a good call, because pretty much everything Stewart recorded after 1976 was self-parody, with the exception of “Young Turks” and his 1983 collaboration with Jeff Beck.

Come to think of it, he was kind of twittish in “Young Turks.”

Which leads to today’s Wolfgang’s Spotlight, a Faces show recorded in Anaheim, California in the early stages of their 1973 tour, the first without longtime bassist Ronnie Lane. The live album “Overtures and Beginners” came from this show, but it’s been out of print for years.

This Wolfgang’s stream contains the entire album, plus “(I Know) I’m Losing You.” It’s a good glimpse of Rod before he sucked. Enjoy!
