With surviving Small Faces member Kenney Jones' full involvement, swinging London's much-loved mod quartet have their classic Immediate Records albums newly mastered to vinyl by long-term Small Faces remastering engineer Nick Robbins with lacquers cut at half-speed by Barry Grint, senior mastering engineer at Air Studios.

Immediate Records label manager and Small Faces reissue producer Rob Caiger has continued his 20-year quest with Jones to recover missing tapes to ensure the best possible sources are used for the new editions while also upgrading LP packaging.

Small Faces (1967); There Are But Four Small Faces (1968); Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake (1968) and Greatest Hits will be relaunched with Immediate Records catalog numbers. The Autumn Stone will appear later in 2023 on multiple formats, including a deluxe boxset. LPs are pressed on 180-gram black vinyl + limited edition color vinyl with original LP artwork faithfully reproduced plus full color inner sleeves on reverse-board card, all housed in a protective PVC wallet. Every LP will come with a Small Faces/Immediate Records/Air Studios collectors obi-strip customized for each LP edition.

Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, recorded in late 1967 and early 1968 is by far and away the Small Faces' best-known and most successful album. Alongside the hit singles "Lazy Sunday" and "Afterglow," classic tracks "Rollin' Over" and "Song Of A Baker," the album added a conceptual twist with the story of "Happiness Stan" and the narrations of Stanley Unwin. A chart-topping success in the U.K. for six weeks, the No. 1 album represents the band's finest hour, though soon after release, the Small Faces were no more, having morphed into the Faces and Humble Pie.

Newly cut at half-speed by Barry Grint at Air Studios to match 2018's box-set edition (now sold out) the mono LP gives a better dynamic response, more defined and accurate sound with extended low frequency and smooth high frequency response.
