Small Faces: All or Nothing, 1965-1968
120 minutes, 2010

At long last, the definitive official DVD for one of the greatest groups of the sixties (or any other decade for that matter). "Small Faces: All Or Nothing 1965-1968" features 27 complete performances filmed from 1965 to 1968 when the band was challenging "The Who", "The Kinks", "The Rolling Stones" and "The Beatles" for domination of the charts. This DVD captures every aspect of their short but brilliant career including early Mod/R&B classics such as "What'cha Gonna Do About It", "Sha La La La Lee" and "All Or Nothing", timeless rockers like "Tin Soldier" and later Psychedelic masterpieces including "Itchycoo Park", and "Green Circles".

Best of all is the inclusion of nine songs from the band's masterpiece "Ogden's Nut Gone Flake" including "Lazy Sunday", "Song Of A Baker" and the six song "Happiness Stan" suite. In between the performances original members "Ian McLagan" and "Kenney Jones" talk about the songs and tell the band's history in new interviews filmed exclusively for the DVD. Also interwoven into the story are archival interviews with "Steve Marriott" and "Ronnie Lane".
