50th anniversary 3cd/1dvd hardback book edition of Small Faces' iconic 1968 Psychedelic masterpiece.
 
The era-defining hit concept album, Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake was originally released by Andrew Loog Oldham’s Immediate Records on 24 May 1968 and soon hit the No.1 spot where it stayed for 6 weeks.
 
Critically acclaimed and still featuring in albums-you-must-own polls, it remains the Small Faces’ best-known and most successful album. Alongside classic single tracks like Lazy Sunday and Afterglow plus Song Of A Baker and live favourite Rollin’ Over, the LP added a conceptual twist with the story of "Happiness Stan" and the narrations of Stanley Unwin on side 2. Admired for its award-winningand unique 'round packaging', though the album represents the band’s finest hour, soon after its release the Small Faces were no more (morphing into the Faces and Humble Pie).
 
To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the album has been remastered by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering with the full cooperation of surviving Small Faces member Kenney Jones. This is the best Ogdens’ has ever sounded! 
 
This 72-page hardback book edition contains 3 CDs with mono and stereo versions of the album, plus a disc of rare bonus material. The DVD contains the Small Faces' legendary feature on an episode of the BBC's TV show "Colour Me Pop" in June 1968, with the highlights being their performance of “Happiness Stan” and Peter Whitehead’s promotional film for ‘Lazy Sunday’. 
 
The deluxe booklet is packed with material, including in-depth sleeve notes by Small Faces authority and Mojo contributor Mark Paytress, interviews, rare photos and memorabilia.
