180g Audiophile Vinyl LP Featuring The Smash Hit "Stay With Me"!
Includes Giant Original Poster!


A Nod's As Good As A Wink... To A Blind Horse was the third album by British rock group Faces, and their second album of 1971. Bolstered by lead singer Rod Stewart's recent solo success with "Maggie May", it was their most successful album worldwide, peaking at No. 6 in the U.S., and reaching No. 2 in the U.K. It also contains their biggest U.S. hit, the swaggering "Stay with Me", and the album itself would be certified gold by the RIAA in 1972.

The A Nod's As Good As A Wink... To A Blind Horse package contains a giant original poster.

"In the mere months that separated Long Player and A Nod, Rod had a phenomenal hit with 'Maggie May' and Every Picture Tells a Story, his third solo album, something that would soon irreparably damage the band, but at the time it was mere good fortune, helping bring them some collateral success that they deserved. Certainly, it didn't change the character of the album itself, which is the tightest record the band ever made. Granted that may be a relative term, since sloppiness is at the heart of the band, but this doesn't feel cobbled together (which the otherwise excellent Long Player did) and it serves up tremendous song after tremendous song, starting with the mean, propulsive 'Miss Judy's Farm' and ending with the rampaging good times of 'That's All You Need.' In between, Ronnie Lane serves up dirty jokes (the exquisitely funny 'You're So Rude') and heartbreaking ballads (the absolutely beautiful 'Debris'), the band reworks a classic as their own (Chuck Berry's 'Memphis') and generally serves up a nonstop party. There are few records that feel like a never-ending party like A Nod -- the slow moments are for slow dancing, and as soon as it's over, it's hard not to want to do it all over again. It's another classic -- and when you consider that the band also had Long Player to their credit and had their hands all over Every Picture in 1971, it's hard to imagine another band or singer having a year more extraordinary as this." - AllMusic
