All or Nothing The Mod Musical
Release date: 2017
The Small Faces:
With two years of touring the UK it is about time for a soundtrack album for All or Nothing. The musical has won acclaim for its accuracy in portraying the story of the Small Faces and, in particular, Steve Marriott. All the young actors who have played and sung the classic tracks recorded long before they were even born have done justice to the originals. They have not only performed the songs accurately but they have also displayed considerable passion while doing so. This is not just great acting but it shows a great understanding of the songs as well as the strength of the originals.
The cast album has been put together by the Small Faces line-up that has been touring during 2017. The classic songs are interspersed with snippets of dialogue from the show. This is a superb idea, placing the songs into context and providing a real flavour of the musical. Although it is not intended as an impersonation, close your eyes and you can genuinely believe you are listening to Steve Marriott talking when Chris Simmons narrates.
All the "hits" are included as well as some album tracks and a few items from the concept album Ogden's Nut Gone Flake. Marriott even explains how the title of the album came about for those who did not know!
This is not only an excellent souvenir of a wonderful evening at the theatre but it is also ideal if you have not been able to see the show. Yes, the musical is that good and well worth seeing when it is on tour.
The album is available on CD or vinyl at the theatres or on-line at https://rocknrollprods.myshopify.com/blogs/cast-recording.
