Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (10/12/68, p.28) - "...the brightest and craziest rock in too long of a time....Both sides of OGDEN magically transport the listener to equally worriless and problemless places....Everybody owes it to themselves to get this record and be refreshed...."

Q (p.127) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With a] curious mix of frivolity and sincerity..."

Q (6/00, p.69) - Ranked #59 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Totally braking...their third and final album. The 2nd side is where things get seriously weird: a loose song cycle about 'Happiness Stan' and his search for themissing half of the moon..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.94) - "OGDENS' is a deceptively soulful, searching record. The voguish surrealism and theatricality is plugged into earthy humanity."

Arranger: Small Faces.

Having begun their career as the archetypal Mod band, the Small Faces latterly embraced traces of flower-power's whimsy. Astute enough not to sacrifice their identity, the quartet retained a distinctive perspective, as evinced by a string of superb pop singles, including "Here Comes The Nice" and "Itchycoo Park." A sense of pop melody and adventurism culminated on this album which encompassed tongue-in-cheek fun ("Lazy Sunday") and passionate love songs ("Afterglow"). Steve Marriott's voice remains completely self-assured and the group's characteristic organ-based swell is often enhanced by P.P. Arnold's emotional backing vocals. Eccentric comedian Stanley Unwin narrates the concept suite "Happiness Stan," but the music is strong enough to withstand the novelty tag. OGDENS' NUT GONE FLAKE was the Small Faces' swan-song, at least until an ill-starred reunion, but it proved a fitting end to a golden era.
