2012 was a momentous year in the history of the Small Faces. On April 14th the band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The year also saw the results of the first ever complete upgrade of the band's catalogue. With the full co-operation of both surviving members, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan, the five years before had seen a massive programme of tape recovery and upgrading. Masters had been pulled in from all over the world, including Immediate label multi-tracks from the Kenney Jones and Charly Records archives. Using these, it  was possible to represent all of the Small Faces' original albums sounding better than at any time since the sixties and to add a whole host of newly discovered tracks and alternative versions. The new editions also feature original artwork and contemporary photos and publicity material alongside comprehensive new notes by band experts.
 
'Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake', recorded in late 1967 and early 1968, and released in the summer of that year, is by far and away the Small Faces' best-known and most successful album. Alongside classic tracks like 'Lazy Sunday', 'Afterglow' and 'Rollin' Over', it even added a conceptual twist with the story of 'Happiness Stan' and the narrations of Stanley Unwin. Loved also for its crazy round packaging, the record represents the band's finest hour, though soon after its release the Small Faces were no more, having morphed into the Faces and Humble Pie. This deluxe digibook 2CD edition of the album features the newly re-mastered mono mix of the original album plus a second disc of previously unreleased rarities and alternate versions.
