Small Faces Small Faces on LP
2012 is a momentous year in the history of the Small Faces. On April 14th the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH. The year also sees the results of the first ever complete upgrade of the band’s catalog!
The last five years have seen a massive program of tape recovery and upgrading with the full cooperation 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.
Originally issued in June of 1967, the same month as the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper, Small Faces is the band’s first album for Immediate Records, recorded at IBC and Olympic Studios. With lead vocals shared between three band members it has been described as their first “grown-up” record and a “neglected gem” which saw them develop a more fully-formed sound.
Now Charly Records and its international distribution partner Snapper Music are rolling out a program of releases from the Small Faces recordings for Immediate Records, including this, their 1967 debut!
