Ooh La La
Morton | Colorado | 07/18/2008

"The Faces-Ooh La La ****

While not as instantly memorable as A Nods As Good As A Wink To A Horse, Ooh La La just might be the best album The Faces ever recorded. For one thing this was the last honest thing that Rod Stewart ever recorded. While he might say this is unworthy of him that is only because he only lends minimal help to the album. What he does lend is amazing and among some of his best work; but what makes this album great is Ronnie Wood, Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan, and Kenny Jones, the guys who actually make up the faces.

The fiery rockers of 'Silicone Grown' and 'Cindy Incidentally' simply tear the house down. The rawer, more bluesy 'Flags And Banners' add new flavor while the title cut 'Ooh La La' is among royalty as it is simply one of the greatest songs ever written.

What is most amazing about Ooh La La is Ronnie Wood who proved he was more than a sloppy drunk guitar player, much more. He proved he was one of the greatest sloppy drunk guitar players as well as an integral part of The Faces and soon The Rollin Stones.

Ohh La La is an album so pure and so raw that it seems it was written to the definition of rock n' roll. The faces will forever be remembered as Rod Stewart's stepping stone which is sad. But those of us who really listen know the true story."

"Temprarary review! So I ordered all the Faces remasters w/ bonus cuts last fall when they were sheduled to be issued in the UK, but received notice from amazon that release had been delayed, all titles unavailable. Now I see "Ooh La La" for $75 !!. What gives? Anybody know a) if these albums are finally getting the sonic upgrades they deserve (and tantalizing boinus tracks) either in the US or Europe? Leave any comments in the, well, in the Comments section. Thanks."

Warner Japan extends its near-perfect track record of providing state-of-the-art remastering while remaining true to the dynamic range of the original recording. None of these remasters are available in the U.S., which remains almost criminal, thanks to WMG USA.

These mini-sleeve remasters are now the defacto best-in-class audio version of each album. The mastering supercedes all other worldwide releases, and is superior even to the Rhino box. There is enhanced clarity in each disc, especially in the percussion.

Except for Nod, which was just a single-fold standard jacket, each 'sleeve also has the original custom-designed LP covers, with all the gatefolds and die-cuts, right down to the real thread stitching on Long Player. Nod does have the original fold-out poster, too, miniaturized to perfection.

Warner Japan seldom, if ever, represses mini-sleeves, and often the 'sleeve remasters are only ever available on those editions. So, if you're a fan of these albums, and you want the best audio, get yours before they're gone.


Have you ever lamented the loss of one of the 20th Century's great art forms, the 12" vinyl LP jacket? Then "mini-LP-sleeve" CD's may be for you.

Mini-sleeve CDs are manufactured in Japan under license. The disc is packaged inside a 135MM X 135MM cardboard precision-miniature replica of the original classic vinyl-LP album. Also, anything contained in the original LP, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed LP sleeves, stickers, embosses, special LP cover paper/inks/textures and/or die cuts, are precisely replicated and included. An English-language lyric sheet is always included, even if the original LP did not have printed lyrics.

Then, there's the sonic quality: Often (but not always), mini-sleeves have dedicated remastering (20-Bit, 24-Bit, DSD, K2/K2HD, and/or HDCD), and can often (but not always) be superior to the audio on the same title anywhere else in the world. There also may be bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere.

Each Japan mini-sleeve has an "obi" ("oh-bee"), a removable Japan-language promotional strip. The obi lists the Japan street date of that particular release, the catalog number, the mastering info, and often the original album's release date. Bonus tracks are only listed on the obi, maintaining the integrity of the original LP artwork. The obi's are collectable, and should not be discarded.

All mini-sleeve releases are limited edition, but re-pressings/re-issues are becoming more common (again, not always). The enthusiasm of mini-sleeve collecting must be tempered, however, with avoiding fake mini-sleeves manufactured in Russia and distributed throughout the world, primarily on eBay. They are inferior in quality, worthless in collectable value, a total waste of money, and should be avoided at all costs."
