PRODUCT DETAILS

Details: An essential mix of 34 mod favourites and rarities from 1964-1967. Modernists loved the latest R&B, blues and soul sounds coming from US cities such as Chicago, Memphis and Detroit and when British groups started playing their own interpretations in clubs and dancehalls they gained their own mod followings, their music remaining popular on the mod scene today. Side 1 of this bespoke collection spotlights the British R&B scene and features a founding father of British blues Alexis Korner with the rare 'Taboo Man' alongside ace mod tracks from The Bo Street Runners, The Others, Mickey Finn and The Blue Men (featuring a youthful Jimmy Page on harmonica) and more. Side 2 starts with British R&B groups developing their own sound by turning up their guitars, employing distortion, feedback and fuzz pedals to take the music in a new direction. Highlights include the Joe Meek produced 'Crawdaddy Simone' by The Syndicats (described as proto punk because of it's ferocity), The In Crowd's snarling 'Things She Says' and The Artwoods' fuzz drenched mod favourite 'I Take What I Want' featuring future Deep Purple organist Jon Lord on organ. Denny Laine (later of Wings) sings with The Moody Blues calming things down with some soulful beat. Side 3 focuses on UK soul music - Rod 'the mod' Stewart backed by The Brian Auger Trinity takes on Sam Cooke's 'Shake', the godfather of ska Laurel Aitken proves he's also a natural soul man with his floor filling version of The Mar-Keys' 'Last Night' and the amazing Barry St. John sings the funky 'Gotta Brand New Man'. Popular club acts Lucas & The Mike Cotton Sound and Carl Douglas & The Big Stampede would regularly bring the house down at mod clubs and also feature. Side 4 includes mod club dancefloor smashes from The Spencer Davis Group and Rupert's People (AKA mod group Fleur de Lys) while mod heroes The Action go psychedelic with 'Look At The View'. A moonlighting Jeff Beck of The Yardbirds plays on John's Children's 'But She's Mine' and there are brilliant singles revered by freakbeat and psych collectors such as Double Feature's 'Baby Get Your Head Screwed On' and The Drag Set's 'Day And Night'. Rarities from The Trendbender Band and The Union (featuring Elmer Gantry) appear on vinyl for the first time.
