Small Faces - All or Nothing 1966

Sounds like a set-up-and-play situation, too. Nicely done, lads.

Reading about the Small Faces, you'll hear that one of the reasons for their demise was not being able to recreate Ogden's Nut Gone Flake on stage. But, as this vid suggests, they were a creditable stage band, so I still think it was just the lack of money that doomed them. They were great, for many years, but the money just didn't flow.

I've seen allusions to management not wanting them to tour behind Ogden's by playing the whole thing live. Money is the great Satan, but artist management is Satan's number one agent.
