The fourth studio album by the Small Faces released on May 24, 1968. Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake hit on the UK Album Charts in June remaining there for a total of six weeks. The title and the design of the distinctive packaging was a parody of Ogden’s Nut-brown Flake, a brand of tobacco that was produced in Liverpool from 1899 onwards by Thomas Ogden. A concept album, side one of the vinyl album opens with the instrumental title track (an alternate take on their second single I’ve Got Mine, which flopped in 1965), followed by the soul ballad Afterglow (titled Afterglow (Of Your Love).

Ogdens. as the album The Small Faces had been wanting to make ever since the 1960s had turned psychedelic a couple of years earlier. Drummer Kenny (now Kenney) Jones and keyboardist Ian McLagan, along with guitarist and lead singer Steve Marriott and bassist Ronnie Lane, had shot to the forefront of the Swinging London scene, sharp-dressed mods with a sound to match. Their knowledge of soul, Tamla Motown and R&B was unrivalled – and it showed. Nevertheless, when the band hit a creative block while they were recording songs for what would become the Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake album, it was Oldham who despatched them off on a boating weekend on the River Thames. He booked us some boats and told us to go away and clear our heads and come up with an idea and some songs to go with it,’ Jones said.

Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake is an acknowledged masterpiece among critics and hardcore '60s-music fans, while remaining relatively unknown compared to The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or The Who's Tommy, two concept LPs that represent the era more famously.

Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ was originally released in the May of 1968, quickly reaching number one chart position in the UK and staying there for six weeks. An ambitious LP of two distinct sides, packaged in its unmistakable replica tobacco tin, the album was the fourth to be released by Small Faces, following 'From The Beginning' and their two eponymous records, and is largely regarded as the highpoint in Small Faces' career both critically and commercially.

In May 1968, the Small Faces released their final LP, Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, putting an end to their short but stimulating career. Though the band's legend has grown over the years, between 1965 and 1969, its recorded output was relatively small: a run of great singles, three albums and they were gone. Their catalog holds up, especially Ogdenss Nut Gone Flake, even with its period touches. The LP was issued in a round sleeve made to look like a tobacco tin, which opened up in four folds (at the time, tobacco tins were often used to store other, less legal substances)  . The album kicks off with the title song, a blazing and swirling instrumental that sets the mood. This opens the door for "Afterglow of Your Love," a beautifully soulful tracks that packs a triumphant chorus.
