The MOD lifestyle enjoyed its heyday in Britain in the early 1960’s when short haircuts, button-down collars, motor scooters, pep pills and good music all combined to keep the aspiring followers of fashion one step ahead of the crowd. And the good music that the MOD’s danced to - featured here - was an infectious cocktail of American Rhythm & Blues, Jamaican Ska and the very best that the British combos had to offer. The original Mod cult faded away as quickly as it arrived, but it would reinvent itself in the late Seventies as Mod Revival and Two-Tone and today it is as relevant as ever before... Go Mod!
This new 180gm heavyweight audiophile vinyl Go Mod! compilation features 32 authentic Mod anthems remastered from analogue tape and original vinyl, stunning artwork featuring original Mod memorabilia and is packaging in a lavish gatefold sleeve.
