Before Ronnie Wood was in The Rolling Stones and before Rod Stewart was a solo hit machine, they were in Faces, a group that, semi-confusingly, morphed from The Small Faces. (They were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame together, despite having different lead singers and distinct histories.) Though Faces didn't have any massive hits, their legacy is still secure; they're cited as influential by pretty much everybody interested in straight-ahead British rock from the '70s. "Ooh La La," from the band's final album, featured Wood on lead vocals, which was unusual. It got a second life in 1998 when Wes Anderson put it in Rushmore. In any case, it's a fantastic song, as evidenced by this stripped-down version from Atlanta's Manchester Orchestra. Andy Hull added some extra pathos by stripping things way back and sweetening up the "ooh la la"s. Manchester Orchestra's latest is 2011's Simple Math, and they're currently working on a follow-up.
