"Itchycoo Park" was released by The Small Faces in August 1967. and has become a classic of its time. The song reached number 16 in the American Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1968. In Canada, the song reached number 1. Long running British music magazine NME cites readers poll voting "Itchycoo Park" number 62 out of the top 100 singles of all time.

The song was one of the first pop singles to use phasing, an effect that can be heard on the drums in the bridge section after each chorus. Most sources credit the use of the effect to Olympic Studios engineer George Chkiantz who showed it to the Small Faces regular engineer Glyn Johns; he in turn demonstrated it to the group, who were always on the lookout for innovative production sounds, and they readily agreed to its use on the single.
This picture disc was released on Record Store Day in 2017 to commemorate the song's 50th Anniversary. It has the stereo version on side A and the mono version on side AA.
