THE SMALL FACES - "Hey Girl" / "Almost Grown" (Decca F.12393) May 1966
Up-tempo belter, with some great singing from Steve Marriott, perhaps the boys' best yet. They get such a big instrumental sound, with concise beat going. Don't worry about the lyrics concentrate on the catchiness, melodically. Flip is equally big sounding, good guitar, instrumental.

Steve Marriott said in a radio interview with Brian Matthew for the Saturday Club Radio Show.
"Hey Girl" was written in a hotel room at six in the morning."
