REVIEW:

This compilation that came out some time ago on a famous torrent site and at first hearing it could seem it was been copied from WLT for its Lard Orders Please compilation (which has an additional disc) recently already reviewed here. But the original uploader seems to have gone through all of is Faces cds & tapes, and bootlegs duplicate tracks to locate the best quality ones and after making sure none were officially released, rework his project; some of these come directly from BBC Transcription Discs> cassette> cd, thus at times some vinyl clicks & pops can be heard. The goal was to locate the best quality recordings out there and it musy be streesd it was achieved since this sounds much better. The first thing noticed on Disc One is the version of Love In Vain in great stereo which does not come from Top Gear 70 as indicated in the back cover notes but most likely from April (or May) 1971; Wicked Messenger has Brian Matthew introduction, he actually presented Top Of The Pops transcription discs from which they were most likely taken.

The first 4 tracks on Disc Two are in much better quality (FM sourced) than the corresponding tracks on Last Orders   Please, this may mean they chose the old version. The  last 4 tracks of Disc Two come from the same concert, however they may be from a different broadcast since they are in mono (contrary to the first four songs) and there are spoken words from the programme host introducing songs. About track 3 that was in the original version of this compilation (this has been reworked) Maybe I m Amazed it actually came from 1971 and was the same as the one included on Five Guys Walk Into A Bar, the official box set that came out in June 2004, this is why it has been removed from the discs, although still present on the back cover listing. This is an interesting compilation which although having no new song, presents all tracks in the best quality, even better than   what was on silver discs on the market.
