ROD STEWART & THE FACES 1971! - 3 DISTINCT VERSIONS OF "I'M LOSING YOU"- THE HORROR!

KENNEY JONES ON THE DRUMS!
x3
Greetings all, hope your weekend is off to a horrific start. A big big hit for ole Rod in 1971 and my first introduction to his music at age 10 when the local Italian restaurant in Brooklyn my dad used to take me to had it on their jukebox. I must have drained ole pops of countless quarters wanting to play that 45 again and again. Version one is that version. Secondly a video (the audio of which is regularly traded as BBC '71) of a smokin' version and lastly a very rare 1974 live version dated 12-7-74 at Swing Auditorium and only available on an out-of-print "best of" KBFH cd....The Horror!!
1 - Rod snakes the tune for his solo album although most of the Faces perform on the track. 
2 - BBC Live version from approx 2 weeks after it was tracked in the studio.
3 - Three years later the Faces are at their peak.
THE HORROR!!
