1968 DEBUT ALBUM IN USA ON IMMEDIATE RECORDS NEWLY REMASTERED FROM ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES
The Small Faces American debut album on Andrew Loog Oldham’s Immediate Records was released in stereo and features different songs to the 1967 UK version, including stereo versions of their two USA hits, ‘Itchycoo Park’ and ‘Tin Soldier’ and UK singles ‘Green Circles’ and ‘Here Come The Nice’.
This definitive edition has been overseen by surviving band member Kenney Jones and prior to his death, Ian McLagan and features in-depth sleeve notes by Ken Sharp with exclusive interviews with Olympic Studios engineer George Chkiantz & fellow Immediate artist PP Arnold.
The 180-gram audiophile vinyl LP was cut by Matt Colton at Air Studios in London from the recently discovered original production master tape with nothing else in the signal path and the lacquer. The cutting session was conducted under the supervision of Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan.
