The Official Small Faces Re-masters Series
Deluxe Definitive Editions of the classic albums for Immediate Records, 'Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake' and 'Small Faces'.
The Small Faces were at the heart of the Swinging London scene of the late 1960s and encapsulated everything that was fast and fabulous in that great decade. Featuring the extraordinary Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane alongside Jones and McLagan the band in a short sharp career moved from beat to mod and psychedelia, leaving a legacy of great songs and a unique style.
The band's finest hour is arguably OGDENS’ NUT GONE FLAKE from May 1968. This groundbreaking album is available in a strictly limited numbered deluxe vinyl edition in its distinctive award-winning round sleeve and also as new 180gm picture disc edition.
June 2012 saw the release of a definitive 3-CD edition of OGDENS' in a round cardboard box featuring both the original mono and stereo versions and an additional disc of previously unreleased rarities and alternative versions.
The band's debut album for Immediate, SMALL FACES is available in a special 2-CD rigid digibook edition. This includes both the original stereo and mono versions and no less than 17 bonus tracks .
All the above packages are available to order for the world excluding the UK from the official Immediate Record website.
Immediate Records , founded by Andrew Oldham in swinging London in 1965, was a new kind of truly independent and youth-oriented record label, set up to compete with the conservative major labels. It burned brightly and prosperously for five years with a roster including The Nice, Humble Pie, Amen Corner, Fleetwood Mac, and PP Arnold and more before collapsing amidst general financial confusion.
As the first stage to restore the Immediate catalogue, a five year process is now reaching its climax to re-present the works of the label's most famous band, the Small Faces. The owner of the catalogue for the world ex-UK, Charly Records, has been working side-by-side with Universal Music, the UK rights-owner, to recover and restore long-lost master tapes and intends to continue this for other Immediate catalogue artists.
