With the addition of Rod Stewart and Ron Wood the "Small" part of the original band name was dropped, and they continued as Faces. Still, their first album was released in the U.S. under the name "Small Faces" due to a "mistake" by their record company.

Their most successful songs included "Had Me a Real Good Time", their breakthrough UK hit "Stay With Me", "Cindy Incidentally", and "Pool Hall Richard". As Rod Stewart's solo career became more successful than that of the group, the band became overshadowed by their lead singer. A disillusioned Ronnie Lane left the band in 1973, replaced by Tetsu Yamauchi (who had replaced Andy Fraser in Free). Released at about the time Lane left, Faces' final studio album was Ooh La La, about which Stewart was very scathing in the musical press on its release, much to the anger of the others. -Original
