5.0 out of 5 stars Small faces great first steps as a mod r'n'b band, 31 May 2000

This review is from: The Decca Anthology 1965 - 1967 (Audio CD)
A brilliant chance to hear the small faces as a rhythm and blues mod band before they got signed to the indie label immediate and went all hippy. Disc 1 is has a more beaty edge to the tracks, the trademark hammond sound cutting through on amazing tracks such as "grow your own" and "almost grown" two instrumentals proving how good the musicianship was in the band.Not many hits on this album and a good percentage of them are covers, but the unique sound of marriots voice leaves you excited on the r'n'b tracks just wanting more. Disc 2 shows how they gradually progressed from mod stompers to harmony kings.The tracks are a good blueprint of future material, such as odgens nut gone flake, but the tunes are a little on the weak side. The tale end of the album includes steve marriots first solo attempts pre faces and some jimmy winstons offerings( the 1st keyboard player). Overall if you like a bit of mod, hammond and r'n'b, buy this. If you like lazy sunday, then buy some of their later stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now thats what I call blue-eyed soul!, 2 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Decca Anthology 1965 - 1967 (Audio CD)
I've loved the Small Faces for a few years now, which begs the question why I hadn't heard a lot of these songs, one reason is before the compilation explosion of this bands material on CD, it was usually just the Decca A-sides i. e. All or Nothing etc. that you would get to hear. The Decca Anthology is a must have for any Small Faces fan who isn't fortunate enough to have all the original albums and singles from the first part of their career. The band sound fantastic, and although the later immediate stuff is incredible, this shows Steve and the boys at a no nonsense, get down to business phase. Great Hammond, great vocals great everything! Even more amazing, as pointed out in the sleeve notes, they were only 19 on a lot of the recordings???? Buy this CD!
