November 24th sees the release of ‘Had Me A Real Good Time at the BBC’ – In Session & In Concert 1971 – 1973 (Warner / Rhino RCV1-725872)

This is the first time the Faces recordings for the BBC have been officially released as an album – but be quick!

5,000 LPs only have been pressed to support independent record stores worldwide – and the UK will have just 500 of those.

Each LP is pressed on “electric orange” vinyl and features a rare live shot from Faces original photographer Martin Cook. An illustrated inner sleeve features full track and recording details plus new and archive quotes from each of the band and beloved DJ and Faces champion, John Peel.

Side One is a rare mix of the complete ‘Sounds Of The Seventies’ session for Bob Harris, recorded April 20th 1971 and broadcast in stereo in the London area only on May 3rd 1971 – and is exclusive to this release:

‘Had Me A Real Good Time’, ‘Love In Vain’, ‘Oh Lord I’m Browned Off’, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’.

Side Two features a sample of tracks from various live shows for ‘John Peel’s Sunday Concert’ and ‘In Concert’ and focuses on the band’s inspired cover versions:

‘It’s All Over Now’, ‘Too Much Woman (For a Henpecked Man)’, ‘Twisting The Night Away’ and ‘(I Know) I’m Losing You’.

This is the best the Faces BBC material has ever sounded!

‘Had Me A Real Good Time at the BBC’ will begin the long-awaited official Faces remaster series and details will announced shortly – please check back for details!

Series producer Rob Caiger has worked with Kenney Jones for many years on the Small Faces catalogue. Now Rob is working directly with Kenney, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and the estates of Ian McLagan and Ronnie Lane, spending the last three years going through their archives, record company vaults and fan collections worldwide to collate original master tapes, session multitrack reels, original artwork, rare photos and memorabilia, discovering a wealth of previously unreleased material in the process

Everything will be newly remastered by Nick Robbins specific to each vinyl, CD and streaming format. LP editions are being cut at the legendary AIR Studios in London. Sound and every aspect of the official Faces remaster series will be approved by Rod, Ronnie and Kenney.

Every release will carry an official Faces logo sticker and more details will be available via the newly launched Faces official website:
