On this day (December 27th) in 1975: In the wake of fall tour dates in North America, The Faces’ split became official…(This photo: my never-before posted shot of Rod performing with Faces on that last ’75 tour at the Ottawa Civic Centre…) Rod Stewart finally severed all connections with the group to work as a solo artist; Ron Wood had already been recording & performing with the Rolling Stones & would soon become a permanent member; Ronnie Lane (who left the band in 1973) had formed the band Slim Chance; drummer Kenny Jones would join The Who in 1978 following the death of Keith Moon

A lovely version of Elton John’s song
From an old tape recording of John’s “Top Gear” special with a collection of some of his favourite sessions.

Much slower tempo than the Gasoline Alley version but I still think they beat Elton’s versions hands down. I like the piano, I assume McLagan?
