Itchycoo Park / I’m Only Dreaming CHARLY 102S
The band’s second single for Immediate from August 1967 is an irresistible reminder of the Summer of Love. As a contemporary review noted, “This is a complete gas, lyrics, sound, feeling and all”.
Tin Soldier / I Feel Much Better CHARLY 103S
The band’s third single for Immediate from December 1967 is an aching love letter from Steve Marriott to his wife-to-be. An early and rarely matched example of the fusion of rock and soul.
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.
