First Step was the first album by the British group Faces, released in early 1970. The album was released only a few months after the Faces had formed from the ashes of the Small Faces (from which Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan hailed) and The Jeff Beck Group (from which Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood hailed.

They were now larger than life, or at least mythic, because it's hard to call an album that concludes with a riotous ode to a hand-me-down suit as larger than life. That was the charm of the Faces, a group who always seemed like the boys next door made good, no matter where next door was. Part of the reason they seemed so relatable was that legendary messiness - after all, it's hard not to love somebody if they so openly displayed their flaws - but on their debut, it was hard not to see the messiness as merely the result of the old Faces getting accustomed to the new guys.

First Step was the first album by the British group Faces, released in early 1970  .

Formed in 1965, the Small Faces were the quintessential mod band. Recorded 50 years ago this year, ‘Small Faces’ is re-issued on heavyweight vinyl along with ‘Unfinished Business’, including replica artwork and mp3 download vouchers. 343. 17. To celebrate Record Store Day UK 2017, the Small Faces incredible live studio session performances have been lovingly transferred onto vinyl.

The Small Faces’ career is unique in rock and roll, occurring in two stages that saw a partial realignment in personnel and pronounced shift in style. They began as the Small Faces, a band of mod rockers who embraced soul and psychedelia in the latter half of the Sixties. Then they became the Faces, a rollicking band of pub-rockers who barnstormed their way through the first half of the Seventies. The change occurred in 1969, when singer/guitarist Steve Marriott (who had left to form Humble Pie) was replaced by two new members, vocalist Rod Stewart and guitarist Ron Wood  . It takes two. Two bands that is. The (Small) Faces gave rock the best of both worlds with their original incarnation as mod hipsters and eventual transformation to raucously joyous boogie-blues rockers.
