R.I.P Ian McLagen

I played this single constantly when it came out and Ian is superb on both tracks on my old copy of “Tin Soldier”. The B side ” I feel much better” has some particularly good organ runs from him, one of my favourite Small Faces tracks.

I only ever saw the Small Faces/Faces on TV in the 60’s/70’s but got to see Ian playing with Billy Bragg in York.
There’s a nice overview of his career over on The Guardian
