Product Description


The Ultimate Collection is the first comprehensive retrospective of the Small Faces' recorded legacy. Crucially, this stunning 50-track, double-CD set is the first to feature both Decca (disc one) and Immediate (disc two) material and it's also the first to be fully sanctioned by the surviving members of the band. All 14 of the Small Faces UK singles are here, along with 12 B-sides and an astute selection of album tracks. The Decca disc, 1965–67, finds the sartorially sharp quartet majoring in amphetamine-fuelled R&B aimed directly at mod dance floors. Especially ace are the debut 45 "What'cha Gonna Do About It", its pivotal riff cheekily pilfered from the Solomon Burke soul shouter "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", and the organ-propelled instrumental, "Grow Your Own", which melds sonic savagery to a Booker T & The MGs groove. Disc two, 1967–69, highlights the band's unique brand of Cockney music-hall psych, best exemplified by proto Brit-pop anthem "Lazy Sunday" and various cuts culled from their brilliantly bonkers concept album Ogden's Nut Gone Flake. This is undoubtedly the ultimate Small Faces collection. --Chris King

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 24 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
This represents a comprehensive overview of the groups career from 1965 to their split in 1969 showing how varied their skills and musical tastes were. Perhaps best known for their early mod R'N'B - which covers most of CD1 - styles they mastered included rock, I'm sure they must have been an influence to Led Zeppelin, thought provoking, mood changing psychedelia - encapsulating most of CD2 - as well as several classic pop singles (all of which are included). With sleevenotes written by Paul Weller devotee Paolo Hewitt I would recommend this collection to any lover of contemporary rock and pop music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 60s RnB! 1 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific package of 50 tracks from the Small Faces. They were the very first band I saw (1965!), and I had forgotten just how good they were.
A raw, but soulful sound, with every member contributing 100%!

Points of particular note to me are the great Hammond organ sound of Ian McLagan, who was undoubtedly a Booker T. fan, without just being a copyist, the solid rhythm section of Ronnie Lane and Kenny Jones, and the outstanding vocals of Steve Marriott. The greatest compliment I can pay him is to say that anyone who doesn't know him could assume he is one of the stable of Stax/Atlantic artistes, such is the level of soul and emotion in his voice!

Indeed, on one track, "I Need Your Loving" (courtesy of Muddy Waters I think!)Marriott also sounds uncannily like Robert Plant. Those who have the first 2 Led Zep albums will spot it without a problem! So did Plant pick up a few tips from Marriott!!

Quite apart from the sound of the band, there are plenty of very strong songs here, which also show how they moved quite seamlessly from their soul/RnB based style into the psychedelic era without sounding contrived, and whilst retaining the emotional quality of the music.

Absolutely recommended for lovers of 60s music, and those a little younger who like bands such as The Jam, and the music of Paul Weller. You won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen! 8 April 2011
Format:MP3 Download
All the songs on this album were released at a time when I was in my early teens. The Small Faces and The Kinks performed songs with excellent lyrics as well as good tunes - not all of us were listening to The Beatles and The Stones exclusively. Itchcoo Park was performed on the Radio in spite of dodgy references to getting high ... Tin Soldier is a masterpiece, as is Afterglow along with the whole Ogden's Nut Gone Flake album (Stanley Unwin included). Their music still stands up to the test of time but it probably means more to those of us who were around when they started. How lucky we were to have our musical tastes shaped by such amazing bands ... and I haven't even mentioned Pink Floyd, The Who and Cream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant sixties rock group 2 Mar 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Small Faces were one of the most distinctive groups of the sixties and they have been a major influence on many rock stars down the years. The founder members were Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenny Jones and Jimmy Winston. Jimmy didn't stay long and was replaced by Ian McLagan after their debut single (Whatcha gonna do about it, a UK top twenty hit). With the new line-up, the Small Faces had a string of major UK hits.

Sha la la la lee, Hey girl, All or nothing and My mind's eye were all huge UK hits, with All or nothing going all the way to number one. After a minor hit with I can't help it, they left Decca and signed for the Immediate label.

They just missed the UK top ten with Here come the Nice but their next three singles all made the UK top ten, these being Itchycoo Park (a top three UK hit and a top five American hit), Tin soldier and Lazy Sunday (which made number two in the UK). A top twenty hit (The universal) and a minor hit (Afterglow of your love - released after the group had disbanded) completed their run of original hits although re-issues of Itchycoo Park (a top ten hit again in 1975) and Lazy Sunday (a minor hit in 1976) also charted.

After the comparative failure of The univeral in 1968, the Small Faces disbanded. Steve Marriott, their lead singer, formed another group, Humble pie (best remembered for their UK top five hit, Natural born boogie) while the three other members found a new lead singer, Rod Stewart, added another musician, Ronnie Wood, and became the Faces. The music of Humble Pie and the Faces is outside the scope of this compilation.

Surprisingly, the Small Faces only made a limited impact in America (the Faces did better) but anybody who is interested in the London music scene of the sixties cannot ignore them.

Hey Pop Pickers! So you know all about Led Zeppelin, The Jam, Sex Pistols, Oasis etc etc but who did they get the 'IT' factor from. Who started the fire? Well in my eyes and soon hopefully YOURS its the one and only Small Faces! Yes thats right kids these 5ft something misfits let rip in 1965 some of the most entertaining and enduring pop/rock/rnb/soul music ever. Just open your ears and your eyes. This collection has done what every fan has ever wished for. A band authorised album which brings together the cream of those heady years with both the Decca and Immediate labels. Lets just give you a quick run through of what lies within. Check out 'whatcha gonna do about it' surely a precursor to the punk attitude! And its sound. Those rotters the Sex Pistols didn't cover it for nothing. Or how about 'All or Nothing'? As sweet and tender as Otis singing about that dock he sat on. And yes 'you need loving' is the song Zeppelin attached one of the most fireball riffs ever to. But Any Hoo! There influence on nearly all bands of importance which came after them is undeniable. Just check out the impeccable hair, threads and shoes. And just a small note about the greatest song ever layed down on tape. 'TIN SOLDIER'! Ever cross your mind how to fit 4 songs in to three and a half minutes and get the most life affirming soul/rock/pop tune ever? Well your long search is over. Steve had the most soulful voice ever to grace an english pop group and on this track it is best demonstrated, along side some of the most innovative drum, guitar and hammond/ rhoades playing my ears have experienced. Every track a Diamond, crackin sleeve notes and fits in ya pocket! Finally the Small Faces get the package they deserve. Best band in the world.... Ever
