Video Du Jour: The Small Faces

Members of the latest class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Small Faces put out their most ambitious album in 1968 – Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake. The psychedelic concept album is not only their best, but it pops up on many “best of” lists, particularly in the United Kingdom.

Here, bassist Ronnie Lane takes the lead vocals on “Song Of A Baker,” with help on vocals and guitar from the great Steve Marriott. That’s Kenney Jones on drums, and although we don’t get a good view of him, our friend (and fellow  Texas resident) Ian McLagan on keyboards. It doesn’t get any better than this – R.I.P. Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott.

By the way, Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake has been reissued as a 3-CD deluxe edition set. Check it out on iTunes.
