Small Faces is the debut album of the Small Faces, released in May 1966 by Decca Records. It includes the hit singles "Whatcha Gonna Do About It" and "Sha-La-La-La-Lee". The album was well received by music critics and was popular with the public, rising to number 3 on the UK album chart remaining at the top for several weeks. The album was recorded at IBC Studios, Portland Place, London between June 1965 and February 1966. Glyn Johns was the studio engineer

Small Faces were an English rock band from East London. The group was founded in 1965 by members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston, although by 1966 Winston was replaced by Ian McLagan as the band's keyboardist. The band is remembered as one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s with memorable hit songs such as "Itchycoo Park", "Lazy Sunday", "All or Nothing", and "Tin Soldier", as well as their concept album Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake.

British beat combo that delivered prime R&B, mod, and psych-pop before they evolved into the Faces following the departure of frontman Steve Marriott. There Are But Four Sma. mall Faces. Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake.

The Small Faces’ career occurred in two distinct stages that saw a partial realignment in personnel and pronounced shift in style. They began as the Small Faces, a band of mod rockers who embraced soul and psychedelia in the Sixties. The Faces played a rowdy, disheveled brand of rock that could make a large arena seem like a corner bar. With Stewart’s raspy vocals and the loose yet muscular playing of Wood, keyboardist Ian McLagan, bassist and vocalist Ronnie Lane and drummer Kenny Jones, they rivaled the Rolling Stones for boisterous energy on a good night. The song was included on the stateside release of their second album, which was re-named There Are But Four Small Faces, and was indicative of the psych-pop sound that the band were evolving.

Breaking from the shackles of manager Don Arden, father of Sharon Osbourne, and their label Decca, the band were enticed over to the newly-launched Immediate imprint, helmed by former Rolling Stones manager and dapper young man about town Andrew Loog Oldham. Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ opens with the title track, on the surface a re-tooled version of second single ‘I’ve Got Mine’ but in reality an astonishing band performance, with Marriott tearing himself away from the mic to support Ian McLagan on keyboards while flange splashes are layered across Kenney Jones’ astute, effortlessly controlled drumming.

Small Faces is the second studio album by the English band Small Faces released via Immediate Records in June 1967. It peaked at number 12 in the UK Album Chart and was their first LP for Immediate in 1967. Confusingly, the band's debut album, released on Decca in 1966, is also entitled Small Faces. UK version: Small Faces The album is a favourite of Small Faces obsessive Paul Weller, who named the album in his 'Top Ten of All-Time' in 1992. The Jam had covered 'Get Yourself Together' between 1981–1982.

They called themselves the Small Faces. Small', because all members were shorter than average, and 'Face' being a Mod term given to the most highly regarded of the Mods. And if this weren't enough for them to take on the world, they had a not so secret weapon in lead singer/guitarist Steve Marriott. The band made their first live appearance in October of '65 and signed to Decca Records shortly thereafter, releasing their debut album in early-1966. For the next three years, they would make some of the greatest records of the 1960s. Such classics as 'Whatcha Gonna Do About It,' 'All Or Nothing,' 'My Minds Eye,'Tin Soldier,' 'Itchycoo Park' and many more.

Good compilation, but many of the tracks sound quite thin (example: A5).
Good alternative in case you don't want to wear out your original copies of their albums. Could've done without Sha La La La Lee - terrible song. Other than that it's all great.
