Rod Stewart was a better singer than Mick Jagger—and at least as good a bottom-wiggler—but the Faces were always a poor boy's Stones, and this DVD can't rewrite history. Cheaply produced with ugly thumbnail factoids running below it, the fragmentary live footage intermittently captures the band's rootsy swagger but also reminds one of what an old tart Rodney could be. Singing "I'd Rather Go Blind" in a gold jumpsuit, he could be Freddie Mercury.

Cheaply produced with ugly thumbnail factoids running below it, the fragmentary live footage intermittently captures the band’s rootsy swagger but also reminds one of what an old tart Rodney could be. Singing “I’d Rather Go Blind” in a gold jumpsuit, he could be Freddie Mercury.
