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...!

I obviously didn't remember as much about this album as I thought. The nonsense from Stanley Unwin really becomes unbearable in no time at all, and it's just a shame that there isn't enough of the good music we associate with this vastly under rated band.
