Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. First Step was the first album by the British group Faces, released in early 1970. The album is credited to The Small Faces on all North American issues and reissues. The album was released only a few months after the Faces had formed from the ashes of The Small Faces (from which Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan hailed) and The Jeff Beck Group (from which Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood hailed. ) It was recorded at London's famous de Lane Lea Studios soon after the group's formation. Highlights include Ronnie Lane's "Stone", "Shake Shudder, Shiver", "Three Button Hand Me Down" (on which both Lane and Wood play the bassline, affording the track a unique sonic quality in the Faces catalogue), and the album's centerpiece, "Flying". The album cover shows Ronnie Wood reading a copy of seminal guitar tutor "First Step" by Geoffrey Sisley.
