The Faces: A Nod Is As Good As A Wink To A Blind Horse (Reprise)

Jon Tiven, Phonograph Record, 1 January 1972

The original Small Faces were quite a band in their day, and although before this album I had my doubts, I have now answered the question of whether or not the new band can equal the old. The Small Faces, good as they were, are in every way matched or surpassed by Rod, Ron and company, who feel disposed to rock out a lot more than they used to.
