Album of the Day
OOH LA LA
Faces left behind four studio albums - each a rough-hewn gem - though by the 1973 release of the last of these, OOH LA LA, frontman Rod Stewart was more focused on his solo career. But co-founder Ronnie Lane picked up the slack in spectacular fashion; the title track may be the best thing he ever wrote, and “Glad and Sorry” isn't far behind. Sir Rod (Stewart was knighted on this day in 2016) makes his raspy presence felt on such tracks as “Cindy Incidentally” and with producer Glyn Johns rallying the troops, the rest of the boys play superbly. A chart-topper in the group's native U.K., OOH LA LA is a rousing finale to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers' career.
