Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
I first got into Small Faces twenty years ago, courtesy of a friend's record collection, and found them to be the most incredible British band I never heard of (except for "Itchykoo Park"). I went out to find their music on CD, and could only locate a couple of crappy cassette compilations and "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake." This 2003 release is what I and, no doubt, many other fans have been looking for all these years. Every major single, and every signature track from their four albums is here, plus many fascinating rare cuts. If you want to hear the work of a truly great band that never got its proper due here in the States ("Itchykoo Park" is about the only thing that ever gets played on US radio) check out this 2-disc extravaganza. Believe me, they are a damn sight better than their later incarnation of The Faces, and even better than their Mod rivals, The Who!

C'mon, "better than the Who"?!? Surely you jest. I have two words for you-Keith Moon. And have you heard of Pete Townsend? Stack all the songs he wrote against the "small" output of the Faces and why would you even risk your credibility by making such an overblown statement? They were a fine mid 60's pop group with an exceptional singer-but superior to the Who? Not.
