REVIEW:

This release presents a new 2019 transfer of the Joe Maloney recording of the Faces concert at Boston Gardens on July 1st 1972 and it is a quite good one; this show was previously available incomplete amongst collectors, then a complete version surfaced some years ago called Real Good Time in Boston (Breakdown 460). The band plays very well indeed, the set list presents many classic live Faces tracks. A brand new number in Rod Stewart words is Maggie May well received by the audience while the second hit Stay With Me doesn’t seem to have impressed too much the attending fans. On the second disc there are extended medley that feature also songs from Rod Stewart solo album Gasoline Alley and True Blue from Never a Dull Moment although recorded with the original Faces group. It is quite strange the Faces decided to leave the stage with a slow tune, I’d Rather Go Blind, another new song for the times. From the original upload here are Joe's memories:

“Rod and the Faces were the headliners of the three act show of, Cactus, Badfinger and The Faces and they were in great form for this show. This was the first date of the American tour and they were ready to rock America in full Faces glory.

The original lineup of the band was still intact and they performed all the songs that a Faces fan could have asked for, covering material from the A Nod Is As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse album, through Gasoline Alley, Long Player and Every Picture Tells A Story. This was the Faces at their peak, having a great time on stage and putting all their "ragged" energy into the music. Opening with It's All Over Now, they set the pace of the set and continued with great versions of Miss Judy's Farm, Memphis, Tennessee and Stay With Me, just slowing down a bit between those gems to do Maggie May and Jimi Hendrix' Angel. After rocking out on True Blue and Too Bad,

the did a medley of That's All You Need/Gasoline Alley and followed that up with The Temptations (I Know) I'm Losing You and closed the set with Paul McCartney's Maybe I'm Amazed. The crowd clapped and cheered for more and the Faces did not disappoint,

with a medley of Had Me A Real Good Time/Every Picture Tells A Story, then slowed it down again for a nice rendition of Etta James I'd Rather Go Blind. And just think, this three band show had ticket prices of $4.50, $5.50 and $6.50. Even in "1972 dollars,

that was a great bargain!   And despite my fraying microphone cord, that caused numerous sound dropouts during the Cactus set so for the whole Faces performance it had to be held up.”

This recording is clearer than the previously released one, except for some distortion of Stewart vocals at the beginning and features the full introduction
