To a Blind Horse (1971). to a Blind Horse (the. band's first two albums were, in contrast, lengthier self-produced affairs)
A nod, you know, is as good as a wink to a blind horse. It seems intuitive to interpret the longer version as meaning 'neither a nod nor a wink has any purpose, both being equally pointless'. Nevertheless, the context of the early uses has it being used with the same apparent meaning as the short version, that is, 'you may nod or wink - I will take your meaning either way'. During the 19th century the expression began to be shortened and the blind horse was left at home.

The Faces took a year to truly coalesce into the supreme rock ‘n’ roll band, but their third album features some epic swagger and strut. to a Blind Horse features some classics, including the hit Stay with Me. It’s a shame that Stewart’s solo success would soon derail the group. Of course, Ronnie Wood ends up in the Rolling Stones, Jones joins the Who, and Stewart ends up in Vegas, but at this particular moment in music history, the Faces rival the Stones. The Faces made their bones as a live band, but this album captured the essence of what.
is the most representative recording of a band that helped shape hard rock and punk for years to come. Exclusively for Prime members. Best Faces album ever. I recommend this to any Rod Stewart fans that may have missed it. Every song is a classic.
