Small Faces – “Love In Vain” (10/3/70)
After the split of the Small Faces, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan joined forces with former members of the Jeff Beck Group, singer Rod Stewart and guitarist Ronnie Wood. For various reasons, the group had yet to drop the “Small” part of their name when they arrived at The Cap on October 3, 1970, but from this recording we can see that the new lineup propelled the group in a new direction. Led by Stewart’s soulful blues croon and Woods’ high-flying guitar acrobatics, this version of Robert Johnson’s “Love in Vein” immediately joined the ranks as one of the all-time great moments at The Cap.
