From the Beginning is the first compilation album by the English rock band Small Faces. It was released by Decca Records of group material after the band had left the record label; it consisted of the band's Decca hit singles combined with various unreleased recordings. The album rose to Number 17 in the UK Album Chart. The album was released by Don Arden on Decca after the group had made a switch to the Immediate label headed by Andrew Loog Oldham.

The Small Faces split from manager Don Arden to sign with Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label and, in retaliation, Decca and Arden rounded up the remaining recordings the group made for the label and released them as From the Beginning. And From the Beginning really doesn't play as a cohesive album by any stretch of the imagination, as it opens with a burst of burgeoning psychedelia then doubles back to the group's early R&B, flaws that matter less as years pass by because, on a track by track basis, there is a lot of wondrous material here.

From the Beginning was a 1967 album released by Decca Records of Small Faces material after the band had left the record label; it consisted of the band's Decca hit singles combined with various unreleased recordings Contents. 4 Additional releases.

First release date: 1967 (Decca) The second and final Decca album, released just after the band moved to Immediate.

Small Faces’ ‘From The Beginning’ is a treasure trove of songs that catches the mod icons at the start of their most creative period. Published on. June 2, 2019. Though the album was a hastily assembled compilation at the time, it now gives 21st-century fans the chance to enjoy interesting songs and alternative versions of hits, from the opening track, a cover of Del Shannon’s ‘Runaway’, to the lightweight pop song ‘Sha-La-La-La-Lee’, written by entertainer Kenny Lynch.

Small Faces were an English rock band from East London. The group was founded in 1965 by members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston, although by 1966 Winston was replaced by Ian McLagan as the band's keyboardist. The band is remembered as one of the most acclaimed and influential mod groups of the 1960s with memorable hit songs such as "Itchycoo Park", "Lazy Sunday", "All or Nothing", and "Tin Soldier", as well as their concept album Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake.

The Byrds - Not to be confused with The Birds (band).

From the Beginning was released between the Small Faces’ first (1966, Decca) and second (1967, Immediate) proper albums, both of which were eponymous. Though it rounds up almost all their prior chart successes, From the Beginning (Decca, also 1967) is not a greatest hits as such, for it also includes previously unissued material scraped from the bottom of the session barrel. Though their explosive entrée What’cha Gonna Do About It and signature song Sha-La-La-La-Lee had featured on their first album, the first-time collation of other hits like the joyous Hey Girl and the anguished All or Nothing was, pre-internet, rather handy. Said songs displayed the developing songwriting partnership of Marriott and bassist Ronnie Lane, further in evidence on high quality newies like My Way of Giving.
