First Step is the debut solo album from the legendary Faces, originally released in 1970. Featuring a post-Jeff-Beck-Group Rod Stewart, along with Ronnie Lane, Ronnie Wood, Ian McLagan, and Kenney Jones, First Step includes the now classic “Three Button Hand Me Down”, and “Flying”.
The US album cover miscredited the album to Small Faces due to a mis-communication with the Warner Bros. label. Faces had formed from the falling-out of Small Faces and the Jeff Beck Group.
