Steve Marriott's singing is as always - great!
junkyardangel1951
What they accomplished in less than four years absolutely proves SF were one of the great bands to emerge during a true renaissence period for popular music.
J P Ryan
If you are a fan of mid-sixties UK rock, then this album is mandatory for your collection.

The 1966 debut of the British rock group, The Small Faces, is essential British Invasion music with lots of bluesy vocals, guitar feedback, and energetic drumming. The Small Faces get a lot of comparison to The Who (ironic because Small Faces drummer, Kenny Jones, would become The Who's drummer after Keith Moon died), but they are very different bands and the Small Faces were not as popular and haven't received the credit they deserve. Just listening to this album, especially the soulful vocals of guitarist Steve Marriott (a sound he already had on the debut!), shows where a lot of Robert Plant's influence came from. Honestly, at times, the likeness between Marriott and Plant is uncanny (it's only magnified when Marriott sings "You need coolin', baby I'm not foolin', I'm gonna send you back to schoolin'..." (from "You Need Lovin'") - words obviously adopted for Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love"). The rest of the band is equally exciting whether it's the inspired drumming of Kenny Jones, the bass of Ronnie Lane, or the organ of Ian McLagan, they all work together here. The album (originally 12 tracks) has been remastered and also expanded to 17 tracks (5 tracks from a French EP) that don't match up to the recording quality of the rest of the album, but are nonetheless energetic, alternate versions of selected songs on the album. The Small Faces are probably best known for their hit "Itchycoo Park", a song released two years after the debut. That song was released after the Small Faces began to experiment with their sound and studio space, but it's also less raw than what you will hear on this album (both periods of their music are definitely worth while though).Read more ›

Back when the Small Faces were together (1965 - 69) they registered as a rather minor British group, if at all, here in the States, They managed one big hit single ('Itchycoo Park'), included on an album that barely dented the Billboard Top 200 LPs, and never even once toured the US. "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake" was noticed, of course, for its round cover, but their Immediate era work was offten seen as precious, English whimsy - unsurprising, perhaps, what with song titles like 'Happydaystoytown' and 'Happiness Stan'. Their peers, like the Byrds, Hendrix, and Rolling Stones kew better of course, and the SF were hugely popular across the Atlantic, with a string of big hits starting with their debut, 'What'cha Gonna Do About It' in the summer of 1965. Of course after Steve Marriott left the group, Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan, and Kenny Jones recruited Ron Wood and Rod Stewart, and as neither Wood nor Stewart was exactly diminutive in stature, Small Faces evolved into another, equally great band, Faces - who crisscrossed the US many times, quickly establishing themselves as one of the major British groups of the '70s. Steve Marriott, who left the SF to form Humble Pie with Peter Frampton. The Pie, after much early promise (check their first three or four albums), sadly degenerated into a self-indulgent live act, and following Frampton's departure soldiered on as a merely decent boogie/r&b/hard rock band.. But if time deals the hardest blows, it has been kind to the Little Mods That Could. The CD era has seen the Small Faces' body of work, and plenty more never intended for public consumption, made readily available, and the music has surely grown in stature.Read more ›

If you are a fan of mid-sixties UK rock, then this album is mandatory for your collection. The UK sound was at its peak around the time this came out, just prior to the psychedelic sound (another genre the Small Faces would excel at) and the music is hard and fresh and exciting--R&B played by English boys with plenty of grit. The Small Faces were the real deal when it came to Mod music: Steve Marriott was the ultimate UK Soul Shouter and the Small Faces were the world's best dressed garage band. Due to rip-off management and other factors, they never made it in the US but in Europe they were huge and for good reason. They released 14 singles. Robert Plant got his inspiration for Whole Lotta Love from watching Marriott sing You Need Loving. There are basically two phases of the Small Faces, the Decca Mod phase (this album) and the Immediate Psych phase (Ogden's Nut Gone). Both albums stand the test of time and repeated plays. If only all bands could release a first album this good.

The Small Faces first time out proves they were a hard R&B in the ranks of The Who. However when it comes down to the instruments they don't have that sonic explosion The Who had but they make it up with plenty of heart and somthing that the Who did not have in 65, a great singer (Daltrey would get better though). Steve Marriott's voice is fantastic, sort of a male Janis Joplin. Its hard to believe that in less than a year they would become a Pop group. There is some filler here but most of the tracks hold up well like Whatch Ya Gonna Do About It, Sorry She's Mine and Sha La La Lee. A very good Debut.
