CD1 and CD3 are stereo and mono mixes of arguably one of the best albums of all time and it all sounds much, much better than previous versions I've owned. So 5 stars for that. Overall, 4 stars because CD2 is non-essential alternate versions and backing tracks - good fun for a fan like me but I can see it all becoming a bit too much for anyone discovering the Small Faces genious for the first time or just wanting to hear a great LP. Like the other albums in the re-mastered series the accompanying booklet is a veritable treasure trove of photos, memorabilia and credits.

I grew up with the Small Faces, and the music from their short reign has been a signature sound to my life. Itchycoo Park when I was in my very early teens spoke to me (yes I wanted to miss off school) and Tin Soldier, Afterglow and I'm Only Dreamin' were songs that taught me about teenage angst and absolute love. So of course, Ogden's was going to find its place in my adolescent life. Brilliant!! Side one with all its variety (Renee is a favourite) and Happiness Stan's journey on Side two was the Small Faces at their quirkiest and heavy best. To see the live BBC video and see Keith Moon cross legged on the floor at Kenney Jones' feet is priceless (and historically significant). But for me, the studio content gives a different context for the Small Faces. To hear the instrumental versions and backing tracks for some of these songs is to fully appreciate the musicality of the band, especially Ronnie Lane's powerful bass coming through loud and clear. I love this stuff !!!

For a Small Faces and Steve Marriott fan like myself, this is a valuable addition to my collection.

RIP Steve.

Always heard about this and had a lot of the best tracks but wanted to hear it as it was intended. Over music great but stanley unwin was always a one joke wonder and it hasn't got any better over the years

Leading the way again, and producing a brilliant sound. The theme runs through nicely. If you think it won't work, find somebody who has a copy and listen to it

Classic. You can hear where the Stone Roses got their inspiration.

A very good album from the Small Faces, I still have the original of this but no record deck so the CD was the better alternative, anyway classic sixties sound with very good lyrics and musical talent and some very nice intoductions in the latter part of the CD from Stanly Unwin.
Worth listening to and buying.
