All Or Nothing
I think The Small Faces are my favourite of the 60s beat bands- they looked so good, like a unit, their Decca stuff is proper 60s mod/r 'n' b, their Immediate stuff is inventive and moving and full of brilliance, to say nothing of Marriott's voice and the band's playing and the Lane/Marriott songwriting.
I can't decide which clip of All Or Nothing is better though- this one from a TV show in 1966, playing live and sounding great...
Or this one of them miming on a street corner somewhere in Europe, collars turned up against the cold, a hat put out for small change.
