A five-disc Small Faces box set has been announced, covering all the band’s 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 year’s 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 ‘lost’ tapes discovered from the Decca archives. These recordings and interviews with frontman Steve Marriott haven’t 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.
Quadrophenia actor Phil Davis is currently directing a film based on the life of Marriott titled Midnight Of My Life. It was made possible following a successful crowdfunding campaign and is expected to be released later this year.
