Exclusive coupling for Record Store Day 2018 features stereo mix of Small Faces no.2 hit single from 1968. Recently discovered, previously unreleased alternate version of ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ title track exclusive to this RSD single! Luminous vinyl in die-cut, crescent moon-shaped picture sleeve. This stereo version of the Small Faces' most successful UK hit single (originally released in mono) highlights Steve Marriott’s soulful vocals together with astonishing performances by band members Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagan and Kenney Jones. Engineer Glyn Johns, striving for authenticity, got up early one Sunday morning (as the band themselves were going to bed) to record the sound of church bells heard on the record. A classic! This 7" vinyl single is an exclusive Record Store Day 2018 release and previews the eagerly-awaited 50th anniversary 3-LP box set edition of ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’, the Small Faces legendary no.1 album released in 1968 and cited by both Rolling Stone and Q magazines as one of the greatest and most influential British albums ever released. Side 2 of the original LP featured the story of 'Happiness Stan' and his quest for the missing half of the moon and the collectable crescent moon packaging of ‘Lazy Sunday’ is a tribute to that.
