An interesting reissue, There Are But Four Small Faces by the Small Faces was the band’s debut US album on Immediate and the last of the reissues from the band this November.
This is said to be the definitive edition of There Are But Four Small Faces, with the project overseen by surviving band members Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan, featuring previously unseen memorabilia and photography, plus sleeve notes by Ken Sharp with new exclusive interviews with Olympic Studios engineer George Chkiantz, PP Arnold, photographer Gered Mankowitz and commentary by Eric Carmen and Californian journalist Harvey Kubernik. Whether all of that applies to both CD and vinyl, we don’t know. But we suspect you mint be buying the vinyl for other reasons.
The LP is 180 gram vinyl cut directly from theoriginal production master tape by Matt Colton at Air Studios, London, with the cutting session conducted under the supervision of Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan.

Again, there is an alternative double CD set available. As yet, we don’t know the full tracklisting, but we would guess that it is the same as the version available outside the UK.
It is, however, available in the UK from 10th November for £10.99.
