Faces – A Nod Is As Good As A Wink

Faces – A Nod Is As Good As A Wink

      A Nod Is as Good as a Wink… to a Blind Horse was the third album by British rock group Faces, and their second album of 1971. It was their most successful album, peaking at #6 in the US, and reaching #2 in the UK. It contains their biggest hit, the rollicking “Stay with Me” (#6 in the UK, #17 in the US), and the album itself would be certified gold by the RIAA in 1972.
      ‘Stephen Thomas Erlewine’  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.
