The Definitive Rock Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
When Warner issued The Best of Faces: Good Boys When They're Asleep in 1999, it was a triumph, the very best single-disc issue of the Faces to date, capturing all of their barroom craziness, tattered elegance, good-time rock & roll hedonism, and droll English wit. In short, it was unbeatable -- until now. Rhino's The Definitive Rock Collection goes one better, actually 11 better on its 30-cut double-disc set. There are more cuts from the early days, such as "Around the Plynth" and "Shake, Shudder," and more middle- and late-period cuts, including two by Rod Stewart & the Faces, "I Know I'm Losing You" and "Jodie."

Thank goodness they kept Ronnie Lane's sublime "Debris," "Stay with Me," the band's killer rip of Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee," and "Just Another Honky." Despite the terrible cover art and slipcase, this baby replaces the previous collection in sound and content. Sean Egan's liners work well, too. Add this to the amazing box set Five Guys Walk into a Bar... and you have everything you need.
