Song of The Week: The Small Faces - All Or Nothing

Yesterday we spun an Ides of March cover of The Small Faces' third single, Sha-La-La-La-Lee. So today we are going to make the obvious connection and play a Small Faces single for you. As we decided which of the many fine singles from The Small Faces to feature, we thought about how Sha-La-La-La-Lee is about our least favorite single from The Small Faces. Not bad, but just a little bit of a "meh" factor when compiling our favorite songs from the diminutive mod wonders. So we are going to with our favorite Small Faces single ever (at this moment at least. Ask me tomorrow and I may have a different single picked out).

From August of 1966, The Small Faces perform the Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane penned, All Or Nothing. We already featured the superb Flip-Side, Understanding, back in 2012, so it's only right that we flip that seven inch over and play the A-Side now. The single was released on Decca in their native UK and it was one of only two singles of the band's to be released on RCA Victor in the US. It even came with a beautiful picture sleeve. 
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
