Sunday Cinema | Rod Stewart And Faces London 1972

There aren’t too many rock reunions left that we’d like to see, but one of them is certainly Rod Stewart and Faces. While the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame act has reunited without Rod, we long to hear Stewart perform with his old mates. If you take Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood’s word that reunion will come in 2015. But today let’s look back at professionally-shot footage of a concert Rod Stewart and Faces played in London for a BBC program that aired in 1972.

The footage below was shot on April Fool’s Day ’72 and was broadcast as Sounds For Saturday -The Music Of The Faces a few months later. We get to see the classic lineup of the band with Stewart and Wood joined by Ronnie Lane on bass, Ian McLagan on keys and Kenny Jones on bass. Over the course of 43 power-packed minutes The Faces roll through a mix of beloved originals such as “Stay With Me” and “Miss Judy’s Farm” as well as potent covers including Rod absolutely belting out McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” and the band working “Street Fighting Man” into Ike & Tina Turner’s “Too Much Woman.” If you’re unfamiliar with Faces, this is the perfect primer of a band at the peak of their powers:

Tracklist: Three Button Hand Me Down, Maybe I’m Amazed, Too Much Woman-Street Fighting Man-Too Much Woman, Miss Judy’s Farm, Love In Vain, Stay With Me, I’m Losing You
