Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Firstly thanks to our very Herr Pauli for the link plus the c-box tips on actually downloading the thing. Thanks also to my employers, as I did the download on their cpmputer in worktime , lol !!

Deep Joy is actually a pretty good title as it accurately describes my feelings on having the tracks safely stashed on the hard drive. I've alreadygot all the TV footage that the bulk of this sudio collection comes from, though the 1968 Top Gear session with PP Arnold is a massive bonus. (In fact I have all the surviving Small Faces footage, period). Pretty decent cover too, based on the pic sleeve for "Tin Soldier".

This is now in one file, each track individually laid out, and spelling mistakes corrected. The artwork is also included, so get downloading. I admit its a blatant steal from another site, but its happened numerous times to me in the past...

  1. thanx to your employers !!!!

    i read a official german statistics-
    at work - german people like to download porno-movies, playing games and search at ebay.

    have a great weekend mein freund

  2. Funny that...here in Ireland we do both.....download and play football....nor all at the same time.....whats an employer anyway??
    Thanks for these great tracks !

  3. Friggin' awesome Small Faces post - Never heard that Top Gear session. Thanks.

  4. Cheers lads. I was delighted to get this - the version of "Get Ready" was one I'd not had before. Showcases Mac at his best... what a player !

  5. Thank you. Amazing post!

  6. "Get Ready is an absolutely new one for Small Faces fans, as some here have mentioned.. unlike this blog, unscrupulous dealers on eBay are peddling this as an actual SF album, rather than simply a radio cop..
    For anyone here who is expecting more, forget it.. As a historical radio show, of an amazing band, this is *priceless*,... but the sound , frankly, stinks, just like all sixties radio transfers.. You have to actually idolize this band to be able to slog through these versions of their (admittedly) standout tracks, most of which you will have already heard before in their pristine studio versions..If you CAN do this, however, you will be rewarded with jewels of the first rate.. as whoever had the prescience to record these BBC shows, did the world a favor, It is only that I was not aware, when I paid cold hared cash on ebay, for a 'new' SF discovery, that is ewas a simple radio transfer.. Definitely worth a listen, just know what you are getting!
