Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Small Faces [Immediate] [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
A word of caution, the fools who designed these packages still think it's a good idea to encase them in a sticky wraparound band. Fortunately, unlike the Kinks sets, these do not have a waxed finish and therefore the plastic is easier to remove but it still caused some minor damage. That complaint aside, if you like the Small Faces, these Deluxe sets are a MUST. Shame no "Autumn Stone" though.

Isn't there a perforation on the opening edge which allows you to just open it and leave it stuck on the pack?
Guess it's personal preference but I like to leave the wraparound on these editions as it's part of the uniqueness of the box set!
As to the media itself, I've had been a fan of The Small Faces for years but never bought any of the albums and was thinking of buying these double disk sets. The older double disk version of this album has more tracks, do you know if it's worth me getting that instead before it disappears and getting this one later?

Hi, I wouldn't advise leaving ANY adhesive label on a card cover as over time the glue tends to liquify and you could end up with sticky gunk on your precious covers!
As to earlier editions, I've only ever bought the two compilations, The Decca Years 2CD and Darlings Of Wapping Warf 2CD so I can't help you there. I'd still say these four are a must have. Any tracks missing on these sets might well show up on any future release of The Autumn Stone (which should have formed part of this set of releases)

Philip A.Cohen says:
A spokesman for the compiler says that expanded editions of "The Autumn Stone" & "The BBC Sessions" will be released in 2013. A 4-CD or 5-CD box set will arrive later in 2012, and almost none of the specific "Immediate" takes/mixes will overlap with the May 2012 expanded reissues. Also, drummer Kenney Jones stated in a recent magazine interview that yet more tapes were recently located that contain more unreleased materials. It has been hinted that even the presently planned 2012 & 2013 releases won't entirely empty the vaults, so there could be more CD's on the way.

I've also only bought compilations previously. But really like what I know of them, and I'm one of these people that as soon as I move into buying albums become quite completist!
The info on Amazon regarding the previous two disk set is insufficient to really tell quickly which tracks are missing/different to the new version (are some of them on the other albums in the current set of reissues?), and either way not knowing that many of their songs it means little to me at the moment so may just go for the four new ones and treat myself...

Good to hear AS is on the way. A 4/5 CD set with NO overlap on these releases - that's a LOT of alternate takes! I think we all agree, it's great they are at last getting the treatment they deserve with this re-issue campaign.

You will be well rewarded believe me.

Philip A.Cohen says:
In the box set, there will be almost no overlap on the "Immediate" material, but the Decca material will be(with the exception of one track), the same material that has already been released on the expanded 2-CD reissues of the two Decca albums. There apparently isn't any further Decca material.

I think they'll need to price this reasonably to get people on board. Could be overkill (depending on your degree of devotion of couse).
