    I like all of his work with Faces and about his first four or five albums. I don't think I liked anything he did after he went disco ... or maybe I just stopped listening.

    That Faces Top of the Pops concert came on VH1 Classic about 12-13 years ago and I recorded it on my VCR. Watched it maybe 100 times. For those who haven’t seen it in its entirety, do so. All great, but Too Much Woman cover has Ronnie doing the most incredible intro. The tones are also incredible...all those Ampeg’s in the backline. I will always be an Ampeg fan and have owned several 60’s and 70’s Ampeg’s and still own a 72 V4.

    If they would just release that video as an album! Maybe they have...I need to check Spotify

    The Faces! And with Jeff!

    I liked his solo stuff until “Do ya Think I’m Sexy?”. Man, I didn’t like that shtick. Gotta hand it to him though as an enduring great performer.

    I know what your gonna say BUT there would be no faces without this Band (and they are my all time favorites !)

    This thread just made me want to put on the Mercury box set. And maybe later the Truth album.

    I loved the Small Faces. I loved the Faces with Rod Stewart. I love Rod Stewart with the Faces. Post Faces is spotty for me.

    like most people here i like the early stuff, a great amalgam of folk/rock that makes it clear the connection between the two. I don't like disco rod and I think his standards albums are terrible, but he's been very successful and to his credit, he didn't just keep doing the same thing

    I prefer his earlier stuff with Jeff and The Face. Having said that, this clip caught my eye for some reason.

    My two favorites by Rod Stewart are "Gasoline Alley" and "Every Picture Tells a Story." They seem so much more "connected" with the lyrics and instrumentation than a lot of his other stuff. I find with the Faces that there are always a few songs on every album that just seem like filler to me.

    Just my take,
    But I think of "Gasoline Alley " as being
    Rod Stewart's " Tumbleweed Connection" ( Elton John)

    They have that Country connection by two English rock/pop stars and really fantastic music

    Never got Rod Stewart. Voice like dust in a bike chain. Songs for grannies. No thanks.

    I always liked Steve Marriott better than Rod. But I liked Rod best with Jeff Beck.
