The Small Faces: Little Tin Soldier

A live recording from Belgian TV made on 2 March 1968, or so the person who has posted this on Youtube says.

I have always liked "Itchycoo Park" best among Small Faces songs, but my taste is broadening and the presence of the iconic 1960s figure P. P. Arnold on stage with the boys makes this special.

Two more treats for Small Faces fans...

  • A 16-year-old Steve Marriott playing drums in the film Live It Up. Note too the presence of Joe Meek protege Heinz Burt on vocals and a young David Hemmings on guitar.
  • Stanley Unwin performing part of his narration from the Small Faces LP Ogden's Nut Gone Flake. Deep joy.
