A Nod Is As Good As A Wink… To A Blind Horse is the third studio album by British rock band Faces, originally released in November 1971 via Warner Bros. Records.

The album became their most successful album, partly because of the solo success of lead singer Rod Stewart with “Maggie May”, which had been released in July 1971 and had topped the singles charts in the UK, US and Australia.

The album features their single hit "Stay With Me" and it's a consistent and creative album. The Rod Stewart / Ron Wood compositions are strong and their finest hour is definitely down to the strong set of songs and tight production helmed by Glyn Johns. The blues-tinged rock music got some honky tonk piano tunes and fine psychedelic edges. Bassist Ronnie Lane sang lead vocals on three songs, which he had contributed to the album, together with keyboardist Ian McLagan.

They were one of the best party bands of their time, with raucous and sloppy live shows. They're showing these skills in the energy of the songs on this album.

The album was initially released with a large poster featuring a collage of pictures, including images of pills and other capsules, and polaroid shots of the band on tour with groupies in various stages of dress in hotel rooms. Shortly after the release of the album the record company had second thoughts about the poster and re-issued the album without it. For this vinyl reissue, that original poster is included in the package.

This album is a 2018 reissue on 180 gram audiophile vinyl with a reproduced poster, pressed in Europe via Music On Vinyl.
