- Stay With Me (1971) From Woody’s incessant guitar intro though to Kenny’s final drum kick, this is a prime slice of Faces sleaze’n’roll.

- Cindy Incidentally (1973) Built around a pleasingly simple mid tempo keyboard shuffle, this delightful outing provided them with their biggest hit, reaching No.2 in the spring of 1973.
