Rock Ballad of The Week: The Small Faces “Afterglow (Of Your Love)”

7 Comments

Your love
Love is all around me
Everywhere
Love has come to touch my soul
With someone who really cares
No one can deny us
People who once passed me by
Will turn their heads
I’m happy just to be with you
And lovin’ you the way I do
Is everything I need to know
Just restin’ in the afterglow (of your fire/love)

You
Yes, you have always been here
A feelin’ deep inside
A feelin’ that I could not see
Or touch, or try to hide
My love is in and without you
I bless the day that I found you
So listen baby
I’m happy just to be with you

Love is like a voice in my head
Keeps turning out (all) the things that we said

Small Faces were an English rock band from East London. The group was founded in 1965 by members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston, although by 1966 Winston was replaced by Ian McLagan as the band’s keyboardist.

The band is remembered as one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s  with memorable hit songs such as “Itchycoo Park“, “Lazy Sunday“, “All or Nothing“, “Tin Soldier“, and their concept album Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake. They later evolved into one of the UK’s most successful psychedelic acts before disbanding in 1969.[6]After Small Faces disbanded, with Marriott leaving to form Humble Pie, the remaining three members were joined by Ronnie Wood as guitarist, and Rod Stewart as their lead vocalist, both from The Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed Faces, except in North America, where this group’s first album (and only their first album) was credited to Small Faces. This practice has continued on all subsequent North American reissues of the album to this day. A revived version of the original Small Faces existed from 1975 to 1978.

Small Faces were one of the biggest musical influences on the Britpop movement of the 1990s. Despite the fact the band were together for just four years in their original incarnation, Small Faces’ music output from the mid to late sixties remains among the most acclaimed British mod and psychedelic music of that era.[11] They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

  1. A classic rock ballad and nice lyrics. I thought it sounded like late or mid 70’s. Even Rod Stewart was part of the group. Great pick again!
