1973: Cindy Incidentally

Since I typically feature a bubbling under hit on Saturday, I thought that I might combine that feature with the second week special. Released in February 1973, “Cindy Incidentally” was the last charting single in the US from The Faces – even though it was not their final single. “Cindy Incidentally” peaked in March ’73 at #48 and was one of several singles from the band’s last studio LP, “Ooh La La.”

While the album’s title cut is better known for later airplay, it was released as a promotional only single and it never charted. The band’s success was never as great as their lead singer’s solo recordings, which also included members of The Faces but could not use the band’s name for contractual reasons.

Although “Cindy Incidentally” did not fare very well, it was their second highest charting single. Only “Stay with Me” from 1971’s “A Nod is as Good as a Wink . . . to a Blind Horse” did better by charting at #17.
