'Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake' Picture Disc LP
Re-mastered 180gm picture disc vinyl edition of the 1968 Small Faces classic

Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, recorded in late 1967 and early 1968, and released in the summer of that year, is by far and away the Small Faces' best-known and most successful album. Alongside classic tracks like 'Lazy Sunday', 'Afterglow' and 'Rollin' Over', it even added a conceptual twist with the story of 'Happiness Stan' and the narrations of Stanley Unwin. Loved also for its crazy round packaging, the record represents the band's finest hour, though soon after its release the Small Faces were no more, having morphed into the Faces and Humble Pie.

Alongside tracks such as 'Lazy Sunday', 'Afterglow' and 'Rollin' Over', it contained a conceptual twist with the addition of the eccentric story of 'Happiness Stan', narrated by Stanley Unwin.

This re-mastered 180 gm heavyweight picture disc vinyl edition of the 1968 Small Faces Psychedelic classic features the newly re-mastered mono mix of the original album.

Kenney Jones discusses the 'Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake' re-masters

 

This Collectors’ vinyl edition was cut from an original analogue master tape on a Neumann VMS 80 mastering lathe by Matt Colton at Air Studios during February 2012, under the supervision of Kenney Jones. The album on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl is a lavish recreation of the original Immediate mono LP albeit with some additional elements. The disc is thus housed in the distinctive award-winning round 5-panel sleeve.

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.
