After hearing the news of a possible Faces reunion, I spent the better part of the last few days watching live clips of the band in their 1970s heyday. In the process, I came across this recently-posted YouTube clip of Ron Wood live onstage with soul legend Don Covay, apparently sometime in the late 80s. The song they perform, "Somebody's Been Enjoying My Home," (RealAudio from Hatch's show) is one of my favorites from Covay's 1973 masterpiece Super Dude 1.
Check out some other great Faces-related YouTube clips after the jump, including a couple of amazing songs that the reunited group won't be able to do very well without Ronnie Lane, who died in 1997, and an embarassingly incoherent--but still strangely compelling--Ron Wood live performance of "Ooh La La" from 2004.
Hope they ditch those backup singers before heading out on the Faces tour. Aw who am I kidding. It's pretty much impossible to imagine anything involving a modern-day Rod Stewart not being absolutely godawful. I'd link to a YouTube video of Ron and Rod together very recently, doing "Maggie May," but my conscience forbids me. Believe me, you'd rather not see it.
