Ogdens. as the album The Small Faces had been wanting to make ever since the 1960s had turned psychedelic a couple of years earlier. Drummer Kenny (now Kenney) Jones and keyboardist Ian McLagan, along with guitarist and lead singer Steve Marriott and bassist Ronnie Lane, had shot to the forefront of the Swinging London scene, sharp-dressed mods with a sound to match. Their knowledge of soul, Tamla Motown and R&B was unrivalled – and it showed. Nevertheless, when the band hit a creative block while they were recording songs for what would become the Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake album, it was Oldham who despatched them off on a boating weekend on the River Thames. He booked us some boats and told us to go away and clear our heads and come up with an idea and some songs to go with it,’ Jones said.

Regarded as one of the all time great albums of the ‘60s, Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake was by far the most successful of Small Faces albums; enjoying a six-week run at the top of the UK charts during June and July 1968. The concept album mixes heavy rock, psychedelia, soul, and sheer cheekiness into a melange that is truly addictive. Stanley Unwin’s narration, is without question a triumph of boldness, surrealism and musical bravura. The award-winning sleeve was based on an old Victorian era tobacco tin.
