The Decca Years is a new five-CD Small Faces box set scheduled for release later this year.
This collection will apparently round up “every recording” the group made for Decca, alongside rarities and alternative versions alongside a disc of their BBC sessions including several previously unavailable recordings.
All audio has been remastered (again) from the original analogue sources under the supervision of drummer Kenney Jones, who after the death of Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan last year is now the last surviving member of the group.
The box sounds like it will be the same design as the Tears For Fears / Simple Minds super deluxe editions, with five discs housed in wallets within a rigid lift-off lid box and a 72-page booklet. Mark Paytress has written a new essay which will feature in the booklet alongside rare photos and memorabilia.
The Decca Years will be released on 9 October 2015. More news on this release when we get it.
