Episode 21: The Faces, “A Nod is as Good as a Wink…”
Episode 21: The “Reselectors” (Dave, Eric, and Sarah) turn their laser sights (watch out!) in this episode toward the Faces’ classic 1971 rocker, A Nod is as Good as a Wink…to a Blind Horse. (You’ll have to excuse us for not including the full title in the episode title.) While all appreciated the musical force that was Rod Stewart and the Faces, the gang found that one particular aspect of the album hasn’t aged quite as well. Tune in to find out what that might be!
[A small correction to a comment made by Dave early on in this episode: a mental slip-up caused him to say that the “Ronnie” who was not in the Small Faces, the band that eventually became the Faces, was “Lane,” when in fact he meant to say “Wood.”]
