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!
While I have always loved the songs on Side 1 from the instrumental title cut through RENE (Reeny not Rene'), SONG OF A BAKER, and LAZY SUNDAY, it is the side 2 HAPPINESS STAN saga that I keep returning to. As an American who had never heard of Stanley Unwin, I cannot tell you how many times my friends and I played the LP over and over trying to figure out what the hell it was that he was saying. Most of us had read A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (the movie was just around the corner) and were familiar with its language but this was something else. We never did figure it all out. Today we have the internet and you can google (a word Professor Unwin would have loved and used) the words to HAPPINESS STAN and there they are. Not half as much fun though.
I was inspired to revisit this album recently after hearing from the widow (since remarried) of a good friend of mine who died 20 years ago.Read more ›
