Small Faces EP
The Small Faces are incredibly important to everyone at Acid Jazz.
It's no secret that head honcho Eddie Piller grew up with all things Mod and continues to promote the movement to this day.
The epitome of mod style, with a love of great American soul music - which they made their own - the band produced some of the greatest records on God's green earth.
And of course there's a personal connection, with Eddie's mother Fran being in charge of the original Small Faces fan club.
Little wonder then that everyone at Acid Jazz feels a sense of pure delight and unadorned joy at their latest release.
It's an exclusive EP "Four to the Floor" , beautifully presented in vinyl with a nostalgic 45 cover.
In addition to their joyous and timeless songs, the group also had a killer line in instrumental brilliance, channelling Booker T and the MG's through the explosive prism of mod.
The four finest of these, "Grow Your Own" "Almost Grown", "Own Up Time" and "Plum Nellie" have been gathered together by Tosh Flood (Pugwash, The Divine Comedy) to create this killer EP.
Approved by surviving member Kenney Jones and put together as part of Rob Caiger's critically acclaimed Small Faces reissue series, "Four to the Floor" has been mastered by Nick Robbins, directly from the original Decca tapes, with lacquers cut by Barry Hint at Alchemy Mastering - and it sounds astounding!
For this release, Acid Jazz have revived their Rare Mod series.
So the disc comes in a laminated flip-back sleeve, resplendent with a Tony Gale photo of the group in their prime 1966 glory.
"Four to the Floor" is released on Friday and can be bought using the link below.
