Matters of Vinyl Importance
Faces - Ooh La La - Coloured Vinyl
Regular price £22.00
Paul Westerberg often cited the Faces as a major influence on the Replacements, and it's easy to see how bar room rockers like this 1973 album's "Borstal Boys" made a dent in the aesthetic that produced "I.O.U." and "Takin a Ride". More than anything though, Westerberg was affected by the late Ronnie Lane's closed-door weepers ("Flags and Banners" and dejected apologias ("Glad and Sorry"). Rod Stewart also essays a sensitive moment or two, notably on the single "Cindy Incidentally", which nearly equals "You Wear It Well" as a masterpiece of the heartfelt affection he once commanded so effortlessly.
