The Faces - Ooh La La

Another Look

June 1973

Episode date - June 12, 2013

The Time Was

    I don’t care how old this stuff is, it’s still great. Is that even arguable? Led Zeppelin has become the single most important ‘heavy’ band of all time, David Bowie virtually invented glam through his invented person of Ziggy Stardust, and Bob Marley’s album was the world’s introduction to a new type of music called ‘reggae’.

    The Faces, meanwhile, were just making some of the best rock and roll of all time. All four of these albums were released within close proximity to one another, all in the month of June. It’s no wonder that I spent all of my allowance on records back then.

    1) Cindy Incidentally – The Faces (“Ooh La La”)
