Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded three CD edition of the British band's 1968 album including 26 bonus tracks. Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake is widely regarded as a classic album that stayed #1 in the UK Albums Chart for six weeks. The two-act concept album consisted of six original songs on side one and a whimsical psychedelic fairy tale on side two relating the adventures of "Happiness Stan" and his need to find out where the moon went when it waned. Critics raved, and the album sold well, but the band were confronted by the practical problem that they had created a studio masterpiece which was virtually impossible to recreate on the road. Ogdens' was performed as a whole just once, and memorably, live in the studio on the BBC television program Colour Me Pop. The surviving members Kenny Jones and Ian McLagan have overseen the remastering of this album.

With all the changes happening in music in the late '60's this classic was a BIG hit in the U.K. but for a variety of reasons(they liked to be in the studio as opposed to touring, label on verge of bankruptcy) it got buried in the U.S. Great songs, Steve Marriott just before he left to help form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton as the next super group. This release was on the level of some of the great entries in the psychedelic period(Sgt. Pepper, Moby Grape, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix,). The story line on side 2 is great, in conjunction with some really great songs. Side 1 is no slouch. You miss it, your loss. I re-bought it in every format it's ever been released in...............now they remix it.

First of all, I will repeat what others have said about how great this album is. I am lucky enough to have the original UK LP in the round sleeve, and various versions over the years on cassette and CD (including the one in the metal can).

I'm writing here today to US readers. I have been meaning to get all 4 of the new Small Faces remasters and was checking the prices (and versions) on Amazon US & Amazon UK. I see that only one of those available through A-US is the UK version. As of today, the US price of the imported UK set is $40.54. WTF?

Meanwhile, on A-UK, the price is £13.00 (which as of today is $20.14). Wanting the UK editions I ordered all 4, and the postage was £7.00 ($10.85). Note that if you add that postage (which was for all 4 sets) to the cost of just 'Ogden's', the total is $30.99 (and presumably the postage on only 'Ogden's' would be less than £7.00). Almost $10.00 less (before tax).
So if you don't care about waiting a few weeks longer, it definitely pays to order this set from Amazon UK.

And meanwhile, if you want to order all 4 sets, if you order from Amazon US, as of today, it will cost you $105.46 before tax, and if you live in a taxable state like mine, it would be be more - in my case $8.44, for a total of $113.90. And 3 of those sets will be the US versions! It cost me $82.27 total for all 4 UK sets from Amazon UK. This was a savings over A-US of $31.63!!!

So, again, if you don't mind waiting longer (and saving a scheißeload of money), your best bet is to buy all the Small Faces remasters from Amazon UK. Sorry Amazon US!

This is a prized LP from my comparitive youth, which I had not listened to in a many years. My loss. The "B Side" in particular - Happiness Stan - holds up incredibly well. And the narrative sounds as though it was written by Anthony Burgess himself. As fresh as the day it was recorded.

I wrote a short review of this classic album referencing the 2008 reissue with bonus tracks. Mark Berry does an extensive review that I can only compliment on - it's spot on! Again, as I mentioned in my other reviews of these remastered gems, the sound and quality of these discs is second to none. I buy CD's mostly to listen to in the comfort of my car - listening at home can be fatiquing. However, I'm having a gas listening to these gems at home - they actually rival the vinyl versions. Material from the sixties and seventies is hard to translate digitally - a wonderful surprise, indeed! Highly recommended!!!

This Deluxe edition of Small Faces' classic 1968 album "Ogden's Not Gone Flake" is first of all a scoop because of the new remastered sound. Both the mono and the stereo versions sound great.

CD 2 is a collection of alternate/early takes and a few outtakes; most of it fine stuff, but also slightly disappointing, considering that recordings and that would logical inclusions on the album are missing. For example the single version of Mad John, Wham Bam Thank You Mam and the single mix of "Afterglow". I also think it would have been great to have the songs released without the Stan Unwin narrative.

A Small Faces boxset with previously unreleased rarities is according to some sources on the web in preparation, so one can still hope to get to hear Ogden's Nut Gone Flake without Stan Unwin. Granted, Unwin's story has a lot of charm, and it is clearly a big part of this album's character, but his narrative, in some cases over the music, may easily appear tedious and annoying.

From earlier review:

"Ogden's Nut Gone Flake" was the album that really established Small Faces as a band that wished to and should be taken seriously. Sadly the band had split up within a year of the album's release. A lot can be (and has been) said about the round tobacco box, I'll stick to giving a few comments about the music.

The original two album sides were more or less two sections, where side one was a regular album, with outstandings songs like "Afterglow", "Song of a Baker" and "Lazy Sunday" - the three other tracks are just good.

Side two is the experimental and ambitious side where the songs are tied together with a strange narration by comedian Stan Unwin. It's a fairytale story about Happiness Stan who goes looking for the other half of the moon.

The songs are all great melodic tunes, with quite an impressive variation in style and instrumentation - several of them sung by bassist Ronnie Lane.
