    A five-disc Small Faces box set has been announced, covering all the bandís work on the Decca label from the mid-60s.

    The Decca Years 1965-1967 will be released on October 9 and features their self-titled 1966 debut album and the following yearís From The Beginning. Also include in the package which is being released to celebrate their 50th anniversary are a greatest hits disc along with a 23-track anthology of rarities and outtakes.

    In addition, a collection titled the BBC Sessions will be included featuring Ďlostí tapes discovered from the Decca archives. These recordings and interviews with frontman Steve Marriott havenít been heard since they were originally broadcast.

    The package has been remastered from the original analogue sources by Faces drummer Kenney Jones and comes with a 72-page booklet featuring photographs and press cuttings.

    The box set is available to pre-order, with the first 100 copies signed by Jones.

    I am interested in this. I have the Immediate Years box and it's great.

    The funny thing is, there's not much more on here than was on 'The Decca Anthology' 2-cd set! Note the duplicated tracks on the singles and albums discs (most of these songs were only ever in mono...only a couple of their Decca tracks are in stereo, the Immediate years had both).

    Will the box be octagonal in shape?

    After listening to the whole box, you'll be intimately familiar with "Sha La La La Lee." What'cha gonna do about it?

    ^That is, I think, the only single they did which has a stereo mix.

    I had to laugh when I read the 2-cd 'deluxe' editions of these Decca albums featured fake stereo versions. For goodness' sake!

    I had very little interest in the Small Faces until they got into their psychedelic period. Songs like Itchycoo Park and Lazy Sunday WOULD actually sound good in stereo.

    Those are Immediate Records tracks, the stereo versions are everywhere and have never been rare. The mono ones are more scarce, but not that different.

    Before I noticed this thread I'd watched a documentary on Youtube titled: Humble Pie, The Life and Times of Steve Marriott. I'm now watching a docu on Small Faces. Hell of a talent.
