Long Player is the second album by the Faces. It was released in February 1971 and recorded between September 1970-January 1971 at Morgan Sound Studios, London and The Rolling Stones Mobile Recording Unit.
The album showcases the collaborative creativity of the band at this time with four of the six self-penned tunes being co-written, with just Ronnie Lane writing solo on ‘Richmond’ and ‘Tell Everyone’. The album also includes two live tracks, a cover of Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and ‘I Feel so Good’ by blues legend Big Bill Broonzy, recorded at the Fillmore East, New York.
The songs range from the wistful mood of ‘Richmond’ and ‘Sweet Lady Mary’, to the rocking rave-up of ‘Had Me a Real Good Time’ and ‘Bad ‘n’ Ruin’.
