"Faces Party Hogs"


Roaring Mouse Records

Inlay says Edmonton Canada 1973, but no Canadian gigs by the Faces in '73. So Edmonton Sundown, London : June 1, 3, or 4, 1973. Stewart addresses an "Edmonton" audience and also says last night or the night before, that would place the show at June 4, 1973.

Sound Quality: Very Good - Excellent Audience. Great Performance.

"Such A Gentle Soul"

Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, October 17, 1973

Sound Quality: Excellent Soundboard

Comment: Contains all of the musical content of the commercial release "Coast to Coast: Overture and Beginners" with the addtion of I'm Losing You and an extended unedited version of Borstal Boys (13:30 vs. 9:56). The official CD version of this well known 1973 LP is very hard to find. It was a limited Mercury/PolyGram release made in W. Germany (order number 832 128-2). Also previously released on the unauthorized "Every Picture Tells A Story" CD. Maybe the Faces should upgrade the original live release as this CD has if they are planning a rumoured tour...
