From the Beginning was the (unofficial) retrospective album released by English mod, rhythm and blues band Small Faces in June 1967 on Decca Records. The album rose to Number 17 in the UK Album Chart.
The album was released by Don Arden on Decca after the group had made a switch to the Immediate label headed by Andrew Loog Oldham. The album contains their hit records on Decca including their number one song "All or Nothing". The album also includes a cover of Del Shannon's classic hit song "Runaway", and other previously unissued songs which were apparently demos.
