By far the best-known Small Faces LP, ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ was also their most successful, enjoying a six-week run at the top of the UK charts during June and July 1968. It marked the arrival of the Small Faces as a bona fide ‘album band’, a belated but brilliant achievement. The concept album mixes heavy rock, psychedelia, soul, and sheer cheekiness into a mélange that is truly addictive. Stanley Unwin’s narration, is without question a triumph of boldness, surrealism and musical bravura.

The original mono and stereo vinyl LP’s in their award-winning revolutionary round sleeves were incredible. Unfortunately, subsequent editions on vinyl, tape and CD all suffered from varying sound quality, distortion, incorrect edits and fades and poor packaging which was unacceptable for such a historic and important album.

For the first time ever, ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ on CD has been produced using recently discovered original Immediate master tapes, Olympic Studio session multitracks, Trident Studios and Pye Studios tape reels plus material from Kenney Jones’ Small Faces archive. The remastered sound will be a revelation and simply has to be heard! The 3CD edition on Universal and Charly is made up of the original mono LP, the original stereo LP plus a third CD of previously unreleased material including alternative mixes, early takes and session backing tracks.

As befitting its legendary status, ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ is released in a variety of formats worldwide:
