"Afterglow of Your Love" is the unofficial final single released in 1969 by the English Rock group the Small Faces. The song managed to reach No. 36 in the UK Singles Charts. The song was originally titled just "Afterglow" on the album on which it first appeared in 1968, Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake.
Andrew Loog Oldham almost immediately released an unofficial final single by the group called "Afterglow of Your Love", a power ballad, (in an alternate version that what had originally appeared on Ogdens) with the contrasting Rock sounding B-side "Wham Bam Thank You Man".
The band never publicised the single and it only managed to reach No. 36 in the UK charts. The following November, Immediate released a final unofficial album entitled The Autumn Stone. It included many of their hits, including unreleased material and three live tracks recorded at Newcastle City Hall.
"Afterglow" was recorded at Olympic Studios, London.
