The Small Faces were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame a little over a month ago. In conjunction with that honor, their first four albums are being reissued as two-disc expanded CD sets.
From The Beginning was originally released in 1967 as a spoiler by Decca, the Small Faces' old label, to coincide with the release of their new album on the Immediate label entitled Small Faces (confusingly, the only album they made for Decca was also self-titled). The Small Faces did not especially appreciate the gesture, and made a point of specifically discouraging people from buying From The Beginning in the advertising for their new album. MORE HERE & HERE
