Skip: The Faces have always been one of our favorite bands, especially when Ronnie Lane sings. Even last night at a show we played at Union Hall in Brooklyn, the thing we chatted about most in the van after the show was the playlist the sound guy chose (before our set) included both Cindy Incidentally, and Sweet Lady Mary. A couple of years ago a good friend of ours, Kent Bennett, mentioned that he'd love to hear us cover this song. So one night when we were all hanging out at Timshel's parent's house in Oregon we crowded into the living room with Keegan and decided to figure out a rough version of it. We were happy to get a chance to record it for this session.
The lyrics in this song are pretty underrated (and with that, as are most Faces lyrics). In all the usual talk about how loose and swagger-y The Faces are, not much is mentioned about how often they knock it out of the park in the songwriting dept. For my money, Ronnie Lane paints a better picture of two people, in minimalistic music and lyrics, better than any "let's light candles and listen to (insert current singer/songwriter)".
