Patterns / E Too D

Released: 26 May 1967

Label: Decca F12619

Highest Chart Position: Did not chart

When the Small Faces moved from Don Arden's management and Decca Records to Immediate in 1967, Arden looked to capitalise on his investment and issued unreleased Small Faces tracks as From the Beginning. At the same time he released a single on Decca. Patterns was previously unreleased although E Too D had appeared on the first Small Faces album. Although Patterns was little more than a demo it was actually finished. 

The Small Faces were about to release Here Comes The Nice / Talk To You on Immediate Records and were faced with having two new singles available at the same time. Their answer was to refuse to promote the single. They knew they would not receive payment for it and it was yeas before they received any royalties from this period. 

This has now become one of the rarest Small Faces singles according to the UK magazine Record Collector with an estimated value of 70. A UK export picture sleeve was produced for the Scandinavian market and this is even rarer and could be worth up to 150!
