Small Faces

Ogdens Nut Gone Flake

One of Britain's most influential bands of the Sixties and a major influence on the new wave of Britpop bands, the Small Faces hit their creative and commercial highpoint with their psychedelic concept album Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake.

A bona fide classic of the late Sixties, Ogdens' was released on the famous Immediate label in the summer of 1968 and went straight to the number one spot in the UK album chart, remaining there for six weeks.

A heady blend of cockney music-hall humour, tough rock numbers, blues and psychedelia, it spawned two of the group's biggest hit singles in Afterglow (Of Your Love) and Lazy Sunday.

The six tracks which made up side two of the original LP are introduced by Stanley Unwin, one of Britain's most popular comedians of the day, renowned for his inventive use of English.

The fourteen bonus tracks are highlights from the group's time with Immediate Records from 1967 to 1969.

As well as hit singles such as Itchycoo Park, Here Come The Nice and The Universal, these include live recordings of Tin Soldier and their 1966 Decca number one single All Or Nothing, plus their memorable duet with label mate P.P. Arnold.

Part of The Small Faces Re-Masters Series

The last five years have seen a massive programme of tape recovery and upgrading with the full co-operation and endorsement of both surviving band members. Kenney Jones has given access to his personal tape archive and many of the band’s original master tapes and session multi-tracks, previously lost for over forty years, have been discovered and re-mastered. It is thus now possible to present the Small Faces’ recordings sounding better than at any time since the 1960s. The Re-Masters series also presents a host of newly discovered tracks and alternative versions, alongside original artwork, photos, rare publicity material and memorabilia with comprehensive new sleeve-notes based around band interviews.
