Faces  - A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse album FLAC

A Nod's As Good As a Wink. to a Blind Horse was the third album by British rock group Faces, and their second album of 1971. Bolstered somewhat by lead singer Rod Stewart's recent solo success with "Maggie May", it was their most successful album worldwide, peaking at No. 6 in the US, and reaching No. 2 in the UK. It also contains their biggest US hit, the swaggering "Stay with Me" (No. 6 in the UK, No. 17 in the US), and the album itself would be certified gold by the RIAA in 1972.

Records ‎– WPCP-4038. Format: CD, Album, Reissue. Released: 21 Dec 1990. To A Blind Horse ‎(LP, Album).

The album features two ballads and a Chuck Berry cover among its cast of bluesy rockers and rollicking bar-room swing-alongs  . The song has also appeared on various Faces compilations and on albums by both songwriters.

Released November 17, 1971. to a Blind Horse Tracklist. 1. Miss Judy's Farm Lyrics. Show all albums by Faces.

A nod, you know, is as good as a wink to a blind horse. It seems intuitive to interpret the longer version as meaning 'neither a nod nor a wink has any purpose, both being equally pointless'. Nevertheless, the context of the early uses has it being used with the same apparent meaning as the short version, that is, 'you may nod or wink - I will take your meaning either way'. During the 19th century the expression began to be shortened and the blind horse was left at home.

To a Blind Horse (album cover).

is the most representative recording of a band that helped shape hard rock and punk for years to come. Exclusively for Prime members. Best Faces album ever. I recommend this to any Rod Stewart fans that may have missed it. Every song is a classic.

Notes

Like most Rhino reissues - Rhino pressed both an EU version and a US version [Faces - A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse]. This is the EU pressing.

Judging from the matrix nos, it looks as though plating was done at Record Technology Incorporated and EU version pressed by Optimal.

Cover says "Made in USA" / On label "Made in EU"

Reviews about Faces - A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse (1):
Doomblade
Damn this sounds excellent! Has that live band feel to it. The clarity and separation is perfect. The vocals are crisp and warm. Nice punchy drums and bold bass. Quiet background, no surface noise, no audible flaws, a great sounding reissue through and through. Dynamic and full. As good as it gets when it comes to remastering. Comes in a polylined sleeve and nice thick tip-on cover. This version is out of print, do if you find it, I suggest you buy it on sight. High quality overall with great packaging that includes a giant fold out poster.
