Small Faces performing Tin Soldier with PP Arnold

Small Faces were an English rock group from East London, heavily influenced by American rhythm and blues. The group was founded in 1965 by members Steve Marriott, Ronnie Lane, Kenney Jones, and Jimmy Winston (replaced by Ian McLagan). They are also sometimes referred to as The Small Faces.

"Tin Soldier" is a rock ballad written by Steve Marriott (credited to Marriott/Lane). It was released on December 2, 1967, by the popular English band Small Faces. The song peaked at number nine in the UK singles chart.

Tin Soldier was originally written by Steve Marriott for singer PP Arnold, but Marriott liked it so much he kept it himself. It was a song that he wrote to woo his first wife, Jenny Rylance. PP Arnold can be heard singing backing vocals on the song. The song signalled a return to the band's R&B roots after their previous forays into psychedelic rock and other musical experiments. When Tin Soldierwas released the BBC informed the band that the last line of the song had to be removed from all TV and radio broadcasts, mistakenly believing that Marriott sang "sleep with you", when in fact the lyric is "sit with you". Marriott explained that the song was about getting into someone's mind - not their body.
