Small Faces Box set vinyl:

- Small Faces Album Sampler - One-sided promo single - Excerpts From The Small Faces L.P. (mono)

The original 7" vinyl was issued as a promotional single for the debut Immediate album. Featuring excepts from Get Yourself Together, Green Circles, Talk To You, All Our Yesterdays, Up The Wooden Hills To Bedfordshire with DJ Tommy Vance announcements, the original vinyl has gone on to become the rarest Small Faces single amongst collectors.

- Here Come The Nice - French E.P.

Here Come The Nice (mono) - This is the same performance as the regular 'Here Come The Nice' mixed to mono but similar to other releases at the time, was subjected to varispeed so plays slightly faster.

Talk To You (mono)
Become Like You (mono)
Get Yourself Together (mono)

- Itchycoo Park - French E.P.

Itchycoo Park (mono)
I'm Onky Dreaming (mono)
Green Circles (mono)
Eddie's Dreaming (mono)

- Mystery - Replica acetate

Intended to be a single, a handful of acetates of Mystery were produced for the band and Andrew Loog Oldham to check the mix. For unknown reasons, the single wasn't released, and Ronnie went back into Olympic to record a new vocal during April 1967 for the newly entitled Something I Want To Tell You. This is a replica of the acetate delivered to Andrew Loog Oldham back in 1967.
