5.0 out of 5 stars A classic for good reason
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!)

3.0 out of 5 stars No Improvement in Sound Quality
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?

The sound quality is up there with the best, it is good to have a reissue in mono and the work done by the producer and sound engineer is exceptional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible!, 15 Sep 2000
By A Customer
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.

This review is from: Ogden's Nut Gone Flake (Audio CD)
This album is an all-time classic. Some of The Small Faces' best tunes are included. I bought this copy as a "secret santa" gift and it was possibly the most appreciated in the entire office.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light hearted gem from an era when Rock began to take itself too seriously., 2 Mar 2007
This review is from: Ogdens Nut Gone Flake (Audio CD)
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. The Beatles went from being 4 cheeky chappy scousers to 4 boring self obsessed individuals.

Only a few albums from 67/68 stand out as remembering how fun and accessible Rock can be... For example The Kinks are the village green preservation society, The Who Sell out, anything from the Bonzo's and the Small faces: Ogdens Nut Gone Flake.

The album is great from the instrumental start through the Cockney joking of Rene and Lazy Sunday through to the 6 song cycle of Happiness Stan, brilliantly narrated by Stanley Unwin.

It especially stands out today in an industry that celebrates the Bland and untalented.
