Faces was an English rock band formed in 1969 by members of Small Faces after lead singer/guitarist Steve Marriott left that group to form Humble Pie. The remaining Small Faces — Ian McLagan (keyboards), Ronnie Lane (bass guitar), and Kenney Jones (drums and percussion) — were joined by Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Rod Stewart (lead vocals), both from The Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed Faces.
In 1976, superstars Rod Stewart/Faces were rewarded by their label Warner Bros. with their first greatest hits album, Snakes and Ladders: The Best of Faces. Featuring the classic line-up of Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Kenney Jones (Small Faces, The Who, The Law), Ronnie Lane (Small Faces), Ian McLagan (Small Faces, Bonnie Raitt) and Tetsu Yamamuchi, the Snakes and Ladders album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.
With hard pub-rock classics such as "Stay With Me" and "Around the Plynth" and brilliant rock standards like "Ooh La La" and "Flying," the Snakes and Ladders album would go on to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this greatest hits masterpiece also includes the only appearance of the super rare "Pineapple and the Monkey."
Dig deeper into the grooves and there you find even more rock and blues belters such as the masterful "Miss Judy's Farm," the powerful rocker "Had Me a Real Good Time," plus the English folk-rock ballad "Sweet Lady Mary," making Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces one of the finest overviews ever of this sorely missed supergroup.
