AllMusic Review by

The Small Faces' catalog is one of the most confusing in rock & roll history, featuring multiple compilations bearing the same title but considerably different track listings, reworked original albums, and haphazard retrospectives. The double-disc Anthology: 1965-1967 goes a long way toward correcting those problems, yet it stops just short of being definitive. Containing all of the material the band recorded for Decca Records -- including "Whatcha Gonna Do About It?," "Sha-La-La-La-Lee," "Hey Girl," "All or Nothing," and "My Mind's Eye" -- which means it cuts off just as the Small Faces were entering their most creative period. Still, the Small Faces were an excellent British R&B group and that phase is captured in all its glory on this set.
