You may have heard of The Faces, which starred Rod Stewart and Ron Wood. As is often the case, the predecessor is far better. Rock critic Bruce Eder puts is best: "The Small Faces were the best English band never to hit it big in America." Especially during the early years, when singles were their main bag.

Released in 1967, the above track is their only U.S. hit, so any compilation will contain it. If you pick up Ultimate Collection, you'll hear a wide range of sounds fueled by mod energy, Stevie Marriott's aggressive voice and one of the tightest rhythm sections in the history of British rock.
