3.0 out of 5 stars No Improvement in Sound Quality 6 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
The Amazon product description for this reissue says that Mac and Kenney Jones, the surviving group members, oversaw its remastering, which led me to believe that this would finally be mastered from the long-promised original session tapes. This sounds no better than the five other versions of this great CD that I already own. What's the point?

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this 23 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ahh, check out this album if you like classic English pop music. McLagan's keyboards, Marriot's vocals and guitar playing, Ronnie Lane's bass, oh and although he never cut it with The Who, Jones drumming fits perfectly. Humour, psychedelia, storylines. God bless 'em. One of the UK's most underrated bands - I don't think so. The Small faces kicked ass. Listen to them and you'll forget all about the pompous nonsense that became the Stones and Beatles. I just wish I had been in Australia in 1968...
If I could meet anyone at all it would have to be Rene!!!! I bet she has a few stories to tell. Mods forever...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gor Blimey Guv!! 21 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pre-dating Tommy by a good year, Ogden's is generally regarded as the first ever concept album. And this from a bunch of East End Herberts previously only known for their distinctive brand of two minute blue eyed soul.
The songs on show are some of the best recorded by the band, from the opening pyschedelic oomph of the title track, through to the cockney singalong of closing tune Happy Days Toy Town, this lp is joyously uplifting, seriously groovy, and not a little barking too.
Two of my favourite Faces tunes are onboard - Afterglow is one of Stevie's best vocal performances ever, and Ronnie himself once referred to Song of a Baker as his "finest hour".
Stanley Unwin's gobbledegook narrative on the B side is a little irritating after umpteen playings, and the same goes for Lazy Sunday, but all in all, this is a fabulous slice of late sixties rock.
And they looked fantastic too...!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic for good reason 28 April 2013
By Ricolas
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So many of the so-called classic albums are a disappointment in one respect or another, but this is a gem of an album. Fiercely British, by turns rocky and whimsical, listening to it made me realise how many other musicians must have been influenced by it.

(Note: the narration on the B-side might annoy the hell out of some people though!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 60's concept album 25 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An album of two halves, but both brilliant.
First half highlight is 'Rene' the Dockers delight and the 2nd side which had a charming little story read between tracks by Stanley Unwin. 2nd half highlight 'Lazy Sunday'.
Amazing album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! 15 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
The Small Faces at their best. Marriott's singing, Lane's base, Maclagen's organ and Jones' drumming are all spot on. Just close your eyes and listen to the (instrumental) title track. You'll know exactly what it's about, and that's rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL GREAT AFTER 42 YEARS. 10 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There cannot be many pop music inclined people left on the planet who haven't heard of this lp,suffice to say that Steve Marriott was at the top of his game vocally and song writing wise.A brilliant mix of soulful rock,tongue in cheek psychedelia & cockney music hall inspired humour,there was nothing like this before or since,and Steve Marriott was the real deal,a geniune East Ender at a time when that meant something culturally.Add the brilliantly twisted wordplay of the great Stanley Unwin and you have a unique recording.A top notch album that will make you laugh as well.Have a deepy joyload one and always,stay cool and dangly won't you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light hearted gem from an era when Rock began to take itself too...
Although there were many great albums released in the late sixties, it is also the era of Rock N Roll wanting to be taken seriously as an art form. Read more
