Small Faces were an English rock band from London, founded in 1965. The group originally consisted of Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones and Jimmy Winston, with Ian McLagan replacing Winston as the band’s keyboardist in 1966. The band was one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s, recording hit songs such as “Itchycoo Park“, “Lazy Sunday“, “All or Nothing“, and “Tin Soldier“, as well as their concept album Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake. They evolved into one of the UK’s most successful psychedelic bands until 1969.
When Marriott left to form Humble Pie, Small Faces did not disband. The remaining three members collaborated with Ronnie Wood, Ronnie’s older brother Art Wood, Rod Stewart, and Kim Gardner, releasing four tracks under the name of Quiet Melon, after which Art Wood and Kim Gardner departed the situation and the remaining five members became Faces, except in North America, where this group’s first album was credited to Small Faces. This practice has continued on all subsequent North American reissues of the album.

Great tune,brings me back
They were a terrific band both with Steve Marriot and later with Ronnie Wood and Rod Stewart. I saw the latter format around 50 years ago. I didn’t see Stewart any other time and not knocking his later work but he and the Faces at that concert were everything you would want a rock and roll band to be.
