Impeccably Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso from the Original Warner Bros. Tapes!
In 1976, superstars Rod Stewart/Faces were rewarded by their label Warner Bros. with their first greatest hits album, Snakes and Ladders: The Best of Faces. Featuring the classic line-up of Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Kenney Jones (Small Faces, The Who, The Law), Ronnie Lane (Small Faces), Ian McLagan (Small Faces, Bonnie Raitt) and Tetsu Yamamuchi, the Snakes and Ladders album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.
With hard pub-rock classics like Stay With Me and Around the Plynth and brilliant rock standards like Ooh La La and Flying, the Snakes and Ladders album would go on to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this greatest hits masterpiece also includes the only appearance of the super rare Pineapple and the Monkey.
Dig deeper into the grooves and there you find even more rock and blues belters like the masterful Miss Judys Farm, the powerful rocker Had Me a Real Good Time, plus the English folk-rock ballad Sweet Lady Mary, making Snakes and Ladders/The Best of Faces one of the finest overviews ever of this sorely missed supergroup.
Therefore it is with much excitement to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the legendary Rod Stewart/Faces greatest hits masterpiece Snakes and Ladders: The Best of Faces. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering, this stunning LP was long overdue for an audiophile vinyl release.
In addition to all the great album tracks, this collection also gathers up rare single only tracks like You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything, truly making this LP the five star masterwork that it is. We believe this wonderful new audiophile release of Snakes and Ladders: The Best of Faces will become one of the most anticipated classic rock releases of the summer!
