Recycled, not rare.
By Maggie's B**tard son
For the casual fan, best to avoid "Rarities" and purchase the brilliant Mercury studio album releases, instead. Otherwise, you'll find out why some of these cuts billed as alternative versions are really out takes or work ups that pale in comparison to what was originally released.rThe more polished songs included here have been released numerous times on much better compilation packages. For the diehard fans, if you purchased " Sessions" and the Faces box set "Five Guys..." you've already got what's rare here.
Would rather have seen UME/Mercury release "Rod Stewart/Faces Coast to Coast Live from the back catalog.It's been out of print for sometime, sought after, better quality material and less recycled than what is included on "Rarities".
