Small Faces - Small Faces Stars Launched Global Search For Missing Demos

Iconic British band Small Faces travelled the world in search of a batch of missing demo tapes when they were compiling a special box set to mark the band's 50th anniversary.

The Lazy Sunday hitmakers formed in 1965 and surviving members Kenney Jones and keyboardist Ian MCLagan plan to mark the group's milestone birthday next year (15) by releasing a greatest hits compilation and a collection of rarities and early recordings.

However, when they began sifting through archive material for the project, the pair noticed a bunch of early demo tapes was missing, and they launched a "global search" for the recordings, eventually tracking them down in New York.

Drummer Jones tells Nme magazine, "When we started working on it, we found most of the master tapes had gone missing - either stolen or lost. It's typical for the Small Faces - we had bad luck all the way... But we set off on a global search and found some tapes at Sony Records in New York. Between that and my archives, we were able to put it all back together."
