Deluxe Editions The Small Faces Albums / CD Description by Amazon

Small Faces (Decca): There were very few people in the UK who hadn t heard of the Small Faces in the UK in the late 60s. This, their debut album was a smash hit when released in 1966. It includes the hit singles Whatcha Gonna Do About It and Sha-La-La-La-Lee. The surviving members Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan have overseen the remastering of this double disc album. The second disc features rare outtakes, versions and mixes and the new booklet features sleevenotes by respected music writer Mark Paytress.
                                                     

From The Beginning: New 2012 remastered Mono reissue of 1967 second Decca album expanded with 21 bonus tracks including alternate mixes, alternate backing tracks, different versions etc.
                                                                   

Small Faces (Immediate): New 2012 remastered reissue of their 1967 album on Immediate Records featuring both mono & stereo versions! Includes 17 bonus tracks taken from alternate mixes etc.
                                                

Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake: The two-act concept album consisted of six original songs on side one and a whimsical psychedelic fairy tale on side two relating the adventures of Happiness Stan. It is a seminal

album and has appeared in All Time Greatest album polls by the likes of Q and NME and appeared in Mojo s Hall of Fame . The Guardian described it as a groundbreaker, but not just because of its circular sleeve or its psychedelic concept - it was more far-out than that: by unleashing such a split-personality array of songs, such as Lazy Sunday, Rollin' Over, Afterglow, Rene and Happydaystoytown, the Small Faces left listeners at the very crossroads of rock and pop.
                                                   

Small Faces were an English rock band from London, founded in 1965. The group originally consisted

of Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston, with Ian McLagan replacing Winston as the band's keyboardist in 1966. The band was one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s, recording hit songs such as "Itchycoo Park", "Lazy Sunday", "All or Nothing", and "Tin Soldier", as well as their concept album Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake. They later evolved into one of the UK's most successful psychedelic bands until 1969.
                                                        

When Marriott left to form Humble Pie, Small Faces did not disband. The remaining three members collaborated with Ronnie Wood, Ronnie's older brother Art Wood, Rod Stewart and Kim Gardner, releasing four tracks under the name of Quiet Melon, after which Art Wood and Kim Gardner departed the situation and the remaining five members became Faces, except in North America, where this group's first album was credited to Small Faces.
                                              

Small Faces have been considered as one of the pioneers of the Britpop movement of the 1960s. They

were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. McCulloch died of an overdose on 27 September 1979. Marriott succumbed to a house fire on 20 April 1991. Lane died of multiple sclerosis on 4 June 1997. McLagan died due to a stroke on 3 December 2014. Winston died on 26 September 2020. Wills and Jones both remain musically active as of 2020.

OGDENS' NUT GONE FLAKE  1968
                                                               


Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake is the third studio album, and only concept album by the English rock band Small Faces. Released on 24 May 1968, the LP peaked at number one on the UK Album Charts on 29


June, where it remained for a total of six weeks. It ultimately became the group's final studio album during their original incarnation (and the last album to contain solely new material until the release of reunion album Playmates in 1977). The album title and distinctive packaging design was a parody of Ogden's Nut-brown Flake, a brand of tinned loose tobacco that was produced in Liverpool from 1899 onwards by Thomas Ogden.
