4.90 10

A far reaching batch of classic and rare mod, R&B and other swinging London sounds of the mid-to-late 60s – with a few big names, but heavy on hard-to-find treasures – selected by Paul Weller! Weller, of course, has been the one of the greatest living embodiments of these sounds from the 70s onward, so you know you're in great hands for the tracklist – and there's a heck of lot of material here! It's mostly British mod and it's completely great, with classics that made a huge impact and lesser known gems that deserve a greater audience. Classic stomping groovers from The Spencer Davis Group, The Arthur Brown Set, The Bats, The Soul Purpose, Barbara Ruskin, The In Crowd, The Mojos, Ray Singer, The Picadilly Line, John's Children, Episode Six and many more. 80 tracks on 3CDs! "Looking Back" by Spencer Davis, "I Don't Need Your Kind" by The Rockin Vickers, "Done Me Wrong" by The Couriers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertaintly, "Looky, Looky" by The Brothers Grimm, "Kangaroo" by Hoagy Benson, "Reviewing The Situation" Jacki Bond, "No Good Without You" by The Birds, You Can't Be Serious" by The Mirage, "Jak D'Or" by Episode Six and many more/  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
