Small Faces Ogdens Nutgone Flake Immediate Records boxset vinyl
Remastered and limited 50th anniversary 3 x 180g coloured vinyl 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. The vinyl edition has been cut half-speed by Matt Colton at Alchemy Studios to give a better dynamic response and a more defined and accurate sound. This is the best Ogdens’ has ever sounded! 
 
For the first time ever, both mono and stereo versions of the album, plus an LP of rare bonus material, have been released together in one deluxe, limited edition box set. Pressed on 180g red, white and blue vinyl, it also features a deluxe booklet packed with material, including in-depth sleeve notes by Small Faces authority and Mojo contributor Mark Paytress, interviews, rare photos and memorabilia.
 
The first 500 box sets will include inserts signed by Kenney Jones.
