BBC Review

Manor Park's Small Faces began life as puppets to an industry still riddled by svangali-like figures keen to exploit the production line model for pop music production. Yet following two years of mod-friendly, peerless power pop/soul for Decca and scary manager, Don Arden (father of Sharon Osbourne), Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane et al finally escaped to a label that at least understood how to nurture a band's creativity.

Cementing their psychedelic credentials in the summer of 1967 with 'Itchycoo Park' on Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label - a prime example of their hallucinogenic cockernee schtick - it was time to show that they could really think in terms of whole albums as opposed to snippets of three-minute glory. The result? Ogden's Nut Gone Flake.

Housed in the world's first circular album sleeve, it was split into two distinct sides. Ogden's' first half consists of six tightly buzzing slices of the psychedelic r 'n' b that was now their stock in trade. Mainly penned by Marriott and Lane the fare divides itself between punchy blue-eyed soul stompers like ''Afterglow (Of Your Love)'' and more chirpy psych knees ups like ''Lazy Sunday'' (inspired by Marriott's feuds with his neighbours).

The second side contains the story of Happiness Stan and his quest to find the moon, interlinked by forgotten master of gobbledegook, Stanley Unwin. Here the songs are considerably more embellished and varied in texture; from the strange faux-folksy 'Mad John' to the more rocking 'Rollin' Over'. The latter featured a brass section while the rest included strings, harps and all the usual trappings expected of bands who wished to signal their serious musical intent. But somehow at the heart of it all was the Small Faces' muscular approach that makes Ogden's certainly the least fey of all English psychedelic classics. This was to be the template for both Marriots' later band Humble Pie and Lane, Ian Maclagan and Kenney Jones' next career move with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood in the Faces.

Sadly, despite one complete airing on British TV (Colour Me Pop) Ogden's was never to be performed live due, in part, to its complexity. Dispirited by an inability to build on its success (six weeks at number one in 1968), and annoyance that the one hit from the album was the unauthorised release of 'Lazy Sunday' the group finally caved in. In the same way as their contemporaries, the Zombies (with Odessey and Oracle), their masterpiece was their swansong and like that album it remains a pinnacle of British 60s pop. --Chris Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Mono! 7 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't going to bother with these new remasters - they never sound any different do they? Until I saw this one in a store and couldn't resist the new packaging. Having only ever heard this album in stereo, the mono version on here is mind-blowing. It sounds so much getter and has much more impact. The stereo version included here is also an improvement on the previous stereo version I had as part of the Immediate Albums box set.

The second disc of bonus material is great to listen to, the sound quality is excellent considering the age of the material that hasn't seen the light of day for 44 years: really shows how the songs developed from early sessions. The USA stereo mixes are also interesting to listen to; they don't sound anywhere near as good as the standard UK stereo versions; Marriott's vocals don't seem to be timed quite right in both channels, they kind of echo. Still good to listen tho as the strength of the songs themselves makes up for this.

The packaging is great; 3 discs cased in a slipcase with the standard Deluxe Edition sticked round the bottom with a perforated edge where the gatefold is. This case folds out into 4 squares, with the booklet in the first (which is interesting to read and has some rare photos of the band and their various 45s sleeves. The middle 2 sections are where discs 1 and 2 sit in plastic 'holders'. The third disc is then slotted into the 4th square with no plastic to hold it. That lets it down a bit in my opinion, would have been nice to have another plastic holder for the final disc, but I suppose then it wouldn't fold closed the way it does and would mean redesigning the whole case.

Definitely worth buying for the mono version of the album and bonus tracks. Will check out the other remasters later on when the prices go down a bit!

4.0 out of 5 stars 2012 Deluxe Version Review 11 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
I won't go in to detail about the merits of the album, suffice to say most people fall into one of 2 camps - Those that know it's a classic, and those that just don't realise it yet.

What I will talk about is this remaster, and whether it's worth investing in.

You get 3 discs - Remastered Stereo album, Outtakes and early demo versions, and the remastered Mono album.

Remastered Stereo - I did a comparison test to my exisitng stereo CD (which I bought in the 90s). At first, on low volume thorugh my computer speakers I noticed little difference, other than that the original 90s version was noticably louder. However, I've since compared both through decent quality headphones and the difference is VERY impressive. The 90s dics is a very "muddy" mix, with little separation between vocals and instruments, and is a bit of a mess. This new remaster, however, allows each component room to breathe and shine through. The bass sounds great, acoustic guitar lovely, hammond organ fantastic, vocals sublime. I felt like I was taking the journey with Stan on a first class fly!

Outtakes/demo versions - Very nice, if you appreciate hearing the development of the songs, the alternative USA mixes (quite noticably different in some cases) then you'll love this. If you're not bothered about such stuff, then this disc may pass you by a little.

Remastered Mono - I've read other reviews which talk about how this mono mix packs a serious punch and blows the stereo mix away. That's not my opinion. I listened to the mono album immediately after listneing to the stereo version (on the same volume setting) and was quite underwhelmed. Maybe that's because, in general, I love a nice bit of stereo separation, and stereo is the only way I've ever heard this album before.

5.0 out of 5 stars slightly expensive way of getting it in mono, but...
Laavely. Only one little quibble. The last track on the 'unreleased' extras CD calls itself an alternate take, 'phased mix' of the title track. I don't think so. Read more
