The Faces
Ooh La La
1973

You hear a lot of The Who at the movies lately. "The Seeker" is on the American Beauty soundtrack and "Baba O'Riley" is the musical centerpiece of Spike Lee's Summer of Sam. Of course, the trend may have started with Wes Anderson's choice of "A Quick One While He's Away" for his brilliant comedy, Rushmore. So what does all this have to do with The Faces? 1. Kenny Jones was in The Faces, and later joined The Who, replacing Keith Moon. 2. The title track from Ooh La La backs the rousing final scene of Rushmore. 3. "Borstal Boys," "If I'm on the Late Side," and the oft-covered "Glad and Sorry" make this album the one to pick up before you dutifully purchase a copy of Who's Next.
