The Best of Faces: Good Boys When They're Asleep
When mod favorites The Small Faces took in Rod Stewart and Ron Wood and shortened their name, they became Britain's most boisterous party band this side of The Rolling Stones. They cut four studio albums together before their new singer and guitarist were lured away, and the best of that output is gathered on Rhino's 19-track collection GOOD BOYS… WHEN THEY’RE ASLEEP. From the full-throated rock of “Stay With Me” (the group's biggest U.S. hit) to the rueful balladry of “Ooh La La” plus a couple of rarities for good measure, it's the definitive single volume Faces sampler. These working class heroes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on this day in 2012, and one listen to GOOD BOYS… WHEN THEY’RE ASLEEP will tell you why.
