Rod Stewart and Faces: The Final Concert - With Keith Richards [DVD] [1974]

Rod Stewart fans can be separated into two categories: those "Rod the Bod" fanatics who still flock to his concerts and adore everything he does, and those "Rod the Mod" stalwarts who love his early solo albums and his tenure as lead singer of the Faces, who remain one of the best rock & roll bands of all time. All Rod Stewart fans will really get a kick out of this DVD but it will mean something special to fans of the Faces. Not only is it their final concert together but they bring the house down and go from boogie rock butt-shakers to emotionally wrenching ballads to Rod's solo material without missing a beat. Unfortunately, this budget-priced disc hasn't been remastered well. The DVD displays plenty of wear and tear and sports pretty flat sound but the strength of the band and the music they create makes up for any of the disc's technical shortcomings. A dignified string orchestra and an out-of-it Keith Richards (who plays a beautiful guitar duet with future Rolling Stones member Ron Wood) add to the fun. A great no-nonsense concert of a great no-nonsense rock & roll band.

Synopsis

Rod Stewart & Faces: The Final Concert - With Keith Richards
The original, fuller title of this rockumentary was Rod Stewart and Faces, and Keith Richard. No director was credited for this effort, though it's possible that the film was assembled by its producer, Roger Grod. The film's 71 minutes is evenly divided between footage of Stewart's US tour (film previously telecast on NBC's Midnight Special), and a climactic concert at London's Kilburn State Theatre, where Stewart and his Faces group were joined on-stage by Rolling Stones stalwart Keith Richard. For the record, "Faces" consisted of Ron Wood (guitar) Ian McLaglan (keyboard), future Who member Kenny Jones (drums) and Tetsu Yamauchi (replacing Ronnie Lane on bass). Song highlights include "Maggie May," "Twistin' the Night Away," "We'll Meet Again," and a medley of "Bring it on Home to Me" and "You Send Me." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
