Groups of the sixties such as 'The Small Faces' is certainly a major part of many's fond memories of those times.
The group was founded in 1965 by 'Steve Marriott' 'Ronnie Lane' 'Kenney Jones' and 'Jimmy Winston' though
in 1966 'Jimmy' was replaced by 'Ian McLagan'
The group certainly achieved their fair share of chart entries (all of which are upon this release) including - 'Sha
La La La Lee' (Chart '3' 1966) 'All Or Nothing' (Chart '1' 1966) along with 'My Minds Eye' (Chart '4') also a 1966
Top-Ten success (and the year 'England' won the World-Cup) in 1967 perhaps my personal favourite of the
groups 'Itchycoo Park' (Chart '3' returning to the top-ten in 1975) and 'Lazy Sunday' (Chart '2' 1968) these among
the groups most successful releases, the remainder of their Top 30 hits back then, are included as mentioned
earlier...........another significant group from the 60's era, worth adding to your collection if yu follow the music of
those times.

Lovely compilation of one of the most underrated pop groups of the mid-1960s. The Small Faces were equally adept at belting out both superb R&B and producing inspired psychedelia; the writing team of Steve Marriott (vocals/guitar) and Ronnie Lane (bass/vocals) penned the majority of the group's classic hits which include the marvellous 'Itchycoo Park', 'Lazy Sunday', 'Here Comes The Nice', 'Tin Soldier', 'The Universal' and the powerful No.1 smash 'All Or Nothing'. For me, there are 3 more tracks worthy of special mention:- 'Afterglow Of Your Love' which is another stunningly good, organ-tinged R&B number, 'Every Little Bit Hurts' - a blues standard which immediately brings to mind 'Go Now' by the Moody Blues and the gorgeous 'Autumn Stone' which shows the subtle, sensitive side of the boys.

If you love British pop/R&B from the 1960s, then I think you will love this album; it is certainly a good way to discover the Small Faces who, with 1968's 'Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake', deservedly found universal praise from the critics.

Great group from a great era and so sad Steve Marriott isn't around today - looking forward to the new musical about the band "All or nothing" to open, according to the Sunday Times, very soon in London!

A truly awesome collection from what the only real Mod band from the 60's, they blow The Who into the slow lane with power and lyrics and a rock soul feel....every song is known and the smiles on your faces will be cemented on by the end of it..

Small Faces Best of....From " All Or Nothing" To " Sha La La La Lee" To " Lazy Sunday" To " The Universal" To " Tin Soldier", This Has Everything To Bowl The Beginner Over.....And To Leave A Huge Smile On The Faces ( Geddit???) Of The More Seasoned Fan.....It's Scandalous Just How Under-Rated This Band Is, In The Great Scheme Of Rock History......
.............BUY,BUY,BUY!!!!.........;0)

I bought this CD following a reawakening of my interest in the Samll Face's Music. This CD is full of good songs by them; 'Don't Burst my Bubble', for a start. It is mostly Immediate Label output, but not exclusively so. I'd recommend this CD to anyone who is interested in the music of the Small Faces, or, for that matter, good, popular, music.

There may be one i've missed somewhere but after losing my original copy of this compilation i couldn't find a single decent collection anywhere!! The small faces did some great tracks and singles but the albums are a bit patchy and its certainly true of most 'best ofs' but this one has shape. Its got all the classics on it and feels like its had a bit of thought gone into the listing. Usually what you get is loads of stuff thrown in together (admittedly at a bargain price) but theres no joy to be had from a load of random tracks put next to each other; a classic here, an instrumental jam there......Anyway theres no flab on this one!

A group associated with the 60's mod era, all tracks are a true reflection of the Small Faces range of music. Perhaps there is a hint of the influence of The Who on some of the tracks!
