THE FACES
That’s All You Need [Oh Boy 1-9035, 1CD]

Compilation of BBC recordings from 1971 to 1973. Very good to excellent radio broadcast.

The artwork says “Recorded Live 1973″ but, according to socialmusic.fm, “this is actually a compilation of BBC recordings made from 1971-1973. April 5, 1973 is probably the date this compilation was broadcast. I believe most, or all, of this was recorded at the Paris Theatre.”

  2. Nice sound on this set. I have the 1971 tracks with a number of others as 5/13/71 Paris Theatre.

  3. I have a set that includes recordings from 2/8/73 and 4/1/73 that match up with tracks 1-8. I have the same info as Mike for tracks 9-13 from 1971. As I mentioned before, the Faces box set is essential. Get it after these finish downloading.

  4. I also found a CD I have called “Wicked Messenger” that compiles 3 BBC shows from 1970. Excellent sound and performances. Worth a look.
