This album combines Ogden's Nut Gone Flake and the Autumn Stone with every additional recording made at Immediate Records. Ogden's was the best concept album of the sixties - a less earnest version of the Tommy story. The narration, by the Professor, Stanley Unwin, is a pure delight (check him as Johnny Saveloy's agent on the Church of Chemicalology in Ardman's wonderful Rex the Runt, too). Steve Marriot was one of the great blue-eyed soul singers. It's a shame that he abandoned the Small Faces to form Humble Pie, despite the Pie's achievements and those of the Faces - as the remaining members became with the addition of Ron Wood and Rod Stewart. The Small Faces were musically tight and wrote songs every bit as good as Ray Davies with the Kinks. With Itchycoo Park, they became the best psychedelic pop act in Britain. The only reservation is the lack of the marvellous cover from Ogden's, but this is the Small Faces' album to buy, and it is essential to any 60s Britpop collection.
