November 9 – Saturday – The Faces – Ooh La La

thCANFYHKX“I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger,” is repeated in the title song, which doesn’t come till the very end of the record. Still, it is the best of the three Faces albums that I have, largely due to that song and the interactive album cover.

Earlier in the day I was in Brooklyn Heights picking up my new eyeglasses and stopped into Housing Works. When I first moved to Brooklyn a few years ago, this store was brimming with goods. I purchased a lovely 16 piece dinner service there, replacing my mother’s old dishes that I had for decades and left behind when I finally relocated. I thought it was just the Housing Works that is nearest to me now in Manhattan that was hurting for merchandise, but now I’m thinking it’s a sign of the times, whatever that may be, because this branch had hardly anything either. Outside, there was a sign announcing “Today Only – Vinyl 50cents.” I did think it might not be ethical to the project if I added to it now, but no matter. The selection that was available consisted mostly of Barbra Streisand, Judy Collins and show tunes, with a couple of Judy Garland and Liza’s thrown in. No rock ‘n roll.
