The Autumn Stone was the posthumous retrospective double album released in the UK by Small Faces in 1969 on the Immediate label.

Album profile[edit]

The double album contains most of the Immediate and Decca original 7" single releases together with live recordings from a concert at Newcastle City Hall and unreleased material from their unfinished fourth LP 1862, including "Autumn Stone", an alternate version of "Afterglow Of Your Love", covers of two Tim Hardin songs ("If I Were A Carpenter" and "Red Balloon") and the instrumental "Wide Eyed Girl On The Wall". It was released by Andrew Loog Oldham soon after the band announced their break up in 1969. In Germany, a single LP with only the new material was released with the title In Memoriam.
