CHARLY 107 L - OUT NOW
"Material that is by turns whimsical, hummable, danceable and, if you want it to be, thought-provoking."
★★★★ R2 MAGAZINE
"Handsomely packaged, generously expanded and annotated: mod maestros in their pomp."
8/10 GAVIN MARTIN, CLASSIC ROCK
"This smart reissue reinforces a case made by fans... it's still the sound of a band liberated by the studio, but crucially it includes contemporaneous singles all hoping to endear the group on its debut in the US market."

Part of The Small Faces Re-Masters Series
The last five years have seen a massive programme of tape recovery and upgrading with the full co-operation and endorsement of both surviving band members. Kenney Jones has given access to his personal tape archive and many of the band’s original master tapes and session multi-tracks, previously lost for over forty years, have been discovered and re-mastered. It is thus now possible to present the Small Faces’ recordings sounding better than at any time since the 1960s. The Re-Masters series also presents a host of newly discovered tracks and alternative versions, alongside original artwork, photos, rare publicity material and memorabilia with comprehensive new sleeve-notes based around band interviews.
