Small Faces were an English Mod band formed in 1965[1] by Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston (who was soon replaced by Ian McLagan). Heavily influenced by American rhythm and blues, they later evolved into a psychedelic act before disbanding in 1969.[2]

Despite the fact that they were only together four years, Small Faces' music output from the mid to late sixties remains as notable British mod and psychedelic music of that era. Allmusic refers to them as "The best English band never to make it big in America."[3] Small Faces were awarded the Ivor Novello Outstanding Contribution to British Music "Lifetime Achievement" award in 1996.[4][5]

Note: Not listed are several unreleased BBC sessions and the rare French EP singles, which feature alternate versions of several early singles. CD re-issues of Decca's two Small Faces albums (Small Faces and From The Beginning) purport to feature these French EP versions, but according to collectors,[citation needed] these versions are not from those singles, but are from session acetates recorded during the various recording sessions of those songs. The French EPs remain elusive to the general public.[citation needed]
