SMALL FACES Small Faces (Archive Quality 1966 UK first press 12-track deep groove mono LP on the red ‘unboxed’ Decca logo label, a classic British 60s debut longplayer, including What’Cha Gonna Do About It, Sha La La La Lee & You Need Loving,later re-worked by Led Zeppelin for Whole Lot Of Love, front laminated non-flipback picture sleeve. This is easily the best example we have ever found in all our years trading. Both the sleeve & vinyl are a lovely Near Mint. The laminate is beautiful, clean & unblemished [tiny remnants of a former price sticker in the top left hand corner, left ‘as is’], the back panel is super clean & there is virtually no edge wear apart from a tiny thumbnail nick in the back opening. There is a small white circular sticker by the Decca logo on the back. The heavyweight vinyl has a stunning shine both sides & grades Near Mint along with the labels. On close inspection, there is just the very lightest evidence of two or three plays in its lifetime. Recommended LK4790).

We have professionally cleaned & play tested, and can confirm this sounds fantastic EKL4013).
