78 in the Shade is the fifth studio album, and the second during their reunion, by Small Faces. It was released on the Atlantic label in 1978 and re-issued in 2005 on Wounded Bird. The album was created during the brief re-union of the band in the 1970s. The follow up to the reunion album Playmates, 78, like its predecessor, stiffed and the band broke up soon afterwards.


78 in the Shade generally gained lukewarm to negative reviews. Allmusic gave the album a review of 2 stars out of five.[2]
