The Nice is Finally on Its Way: Release Date and Pre-Order Info for Small Faces Box

Well, after two years of teasing, we finally have a release date, pre-order info, and all necessary specs on that great, big box of Small Faces. On January 14, 2014, Charly Records will drop four CDs and 3 vinyl EPs worth of the moddest Mod band augmented with an acetate, posters, press kits, postcards, art prints, and a hardbound coffee table book. The set solely covers the Immediate Years, so nothing from the band's eponymous debut album is included. However, all of the single sides and all of the Autumn Stone tracks left off 2012's deluxe editions are (apparently "The Autumn Stone" goes by the name "Jenny's Song"on this release), as well as a number of intriguing titles such as "Shades of Green", "Doolally", "Mind the Doors", "Jack", "Fred", and more.
