When discussing songwriting genius in the 1960s, three bands are often mentions in the same breath … and we all know who they are.

But two others are often unfairly forgotten or dismissed. The Kinks of course were right up there with the market leaders, but for many of us the absolute pinnacle of creative genius during that influential decade came from four East End lads (ok, so one was from Middlesex), each not much bigger than a milk bottle.

The Small Faces - Under Review features rare live and studio performances of this extraordinary band, interspersed with the independent review and criticism of a panel of esteemed experts. These include: Mod expert and Steve Marriott biographer, Paolo Hewitt; Melody Maker contributor during the 1960s and early champion of the Small Faces, Chris Welch; Small Faces biographer and all-around expert, John Hellier; 1960s NME editor and friend of the group, Keith Altham; Uncut Magazine feature editor, Nigel Williamson, and many, many more.

The film also features rarely seen promo films, interview footage with the band members, TV clips and a host of other features. And with a collection of incredible segments featuring the one and the only (we are not worthy!) Sir Stanley Unwin, this is not just the only full-length Small Faces video on the market, it's also an inspiring, revelatory and downright entertaining look at a truly exceptional band.
