Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Not so long ago, I was leafing through Ronnie Wood's autobiography. He mentioned how he kept listening to this album till he wore the record out.

And I thought, hmm, if a Rolling Stone listened to this album till he wore it out, it must be good. When I went to buy it, all that was available was a $47 import version. Fortunately, this new version of the album with 14 bonus tracks is now available.

Released in 1968, this psychedelic concept album, went to No 1 in the UK for 6 weeks. Unfortunately, not long after, the group, on the verge of superstardom disbanded. Lead singer Steve Marriott went on to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton. The other members went on to form The Faces with Rod Stewart, and Ronnie Wood...

Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, a parody of a popular tobacco, is a most unusual concept album. It's rock but not as we understand it. It's folky, mythical, fairytale, surreal, original and fun.

I can't really say what it's about. There's a popular prostitute called Rene, and someone's looking for half a moon. Songs you may already know Itchycoo Park, and Lazy Sunday. There is some inspired narration, using nonsense lyrics like Lewis Caroll in Jabberwocky. Mind expanding. Think Alice in Wonderland meets White Album, and you have some idea of its eclecticism:

Over bridge of sighs,
To rest my eyes in shades of green.
Under dreamin spires,
To Itchycoo Park,
That's where I've been.

Personally, I love the opening track, and Here Comes the Nice, and those Jabberwocky tracks.

Ronnie Wood has great taste in music.

I hope this was helpful, and I think you'll love it.

"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. The narration overlaps the music in several cases with is quite charming, but personally I would havev liked to hear the music of "Happiness Stan", "The Hungry Intruder" and "Mad John" without Unwin's narration - hopefully some day a version with just the music will be released.

This version contains no less than 14 bonus-tracks - most of them singles A's and B's. A few rarities have been included too, "Groovy" which the band recorded with P.P. Arnold and "Don't Burst my Bubble" from one their last studio-sessions. It seems the band was well half-ways into the recordings of a follow-up album, when Steve Marriott decided to leave and form "Humble Pie" with Peter Frampton".

Many of these recordings were released on the 1969 album "The Autumn Stone", which also included a lot of previously released material.

Other post "ONGF" recordings here are "The Universal", "The Autumn Stone" and "Wham Bam Thank You Mam".

The last two tracks here are 1968 live-recordings.

As mentioned, this was originally a bit of a concept album, with a bit of "the sound of pub rock", with much good time British Pop music. The track "Lazy Sunday" shows what happens when this group just has a good time. "Rollin' Over" is much heavier and another favorite.

The Small faces ( which soon after morphed to Faces w/Rod Stewart, Steve Marriot going to Humble Pie, Wood also going to the stones, Lane going to The Who) were a very popular band in Britain as I recall, and as you can see had a major effect on the evolution of rock and roll. If you listen to their earlier work, more top 40 pop such as "All Or Nothing" and others, you see their changes as they did "Itchycoo Park", which was a moderate hit here and gave me my first glimpse of Marriots potential. This bonus track is a major part of the 60's. Many bonus tracksd were also part of there "Autumn Stone" LP, while domestically "Tin Soldier" and "Itchycoo Park" where part of the US Domestic album "These are the Small Faces", I am looking at the album right now from late 1967. Many times the US and British releadse were quite different. ONGF though is pretty identical.

"Lazy Sunday" is very unique as compared to the other tracks, just a good bubbly good time song. But then you hear "Afterglow" which further evolves the bands sound just before their breakup. Heavy rock and roll, with heavy Organ ( a Faces signature). "Wham Bam, Thank You Mam" was the flip side to the "Afterglow single". "Here Comes The Nice" and "The Universal" are also great cuts.

This CD is a bargain, especially with all the bonus tracks, which give you a great sampling of their later work for this label. It's well worth the money, and you will be surprised how good it is, even if it wasn't played that much in the US (FM wise) except Itchycoo Park. Originally this was hard to get AND expensive, sometimes having to find the import.
