Concept Album

The Small Faces made probably the finest album of 1967 (excepting Sergeant Pepper), and certainly my favorite.  Enjoy the ramble through the psychedelic thoughts of Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan, ending with the Stanley Unwin recitation of the story of Happiness Stan.

Brilliance on so many levels and way ahead of its time, musically speaking.

And a bonus:  Itchycoo Park.

  1. Oh, my……Itchycoo Park…..ah, yes…..just makes you feel so good to listen to that. Blind Faith’s “Can’t find my way home” has the same vibe for me. They DO NOT make music like that now – perhaps they can’t. I wish somehow we could convey that to the younger generation. I fear that I don’t have the capacity to explain it……ah, well.

  2. Wow, I bought that album when it came out — it had a round cover as shown in the video. Must be a collector’s item now. Sadly I threw out most of my LPs when my basement flooded and the cardboard sleeves got soaked.
