The Small Faces: Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, June 1968

The Small Faces new album Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake (Immediate), apart from being encased in the first circular sleeve I have ever seen, is a landmark for the group – "A Storm-braining Electrilode of the Highest Tudeimagns" as their narrator on side two, Stanley Unwin, might put it – and almost certain to put the group in the same smash album selling bracket as the Beach Boys, the Stones, the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
