Night Comes Down – 60 mod, R&B and freakbeat London nuggets box set

Cherry Red always does a good box set, so I’ve high hopes for Night Comes Down – 60 mod, R&B and freakbeat London nuggets.

Just up for pre-order and landing in May via the RPM label, this is a three-CD set that follows in the footsteps of the excellent Looking Back and Keep Looking’ boxes, covering a range of musical styles under the mod umbrella.

Across the three CDs you get the ‘gutsy yet jazzy R&B’ which opens disc one, along with horn-laden Brit Soul (Norma Lee, The Brothers Grimm), fuzzy Freakbeat (Favourite Sons, The Tomcats, The In Crowd), Femme Pop (Twiggy, Twinkle), and groovy Loungecore (Mark Wirtz and Les Reed’s British Lion Orchestra).

Disc 3 reflects the influence of Psychedelia, as Swinging London became multi-coloured, with assorted treats from The Alan Bown, The Mike Stuart Span and The Spectrum to name just a few.

As an added bonus, many tracks here are making their official debut on CD, including rarities by The Gnomes Of Zurich, Kevin ‘King’ Lear, Dominic Grant, The Shadrocks, The Reaction, Al Saxon, The Hammers and more.

The deluxe clamshell package includes a ‘weighty’ booklet full of illustrations, along with a 12,000-word sleevenote that doubles as a detailed summary of all 87 tracks on offer.

Fancy one? It lands on 26th May 2017 but is available to pre-order right now. The three-disc set sells for £18.70. Track listing below.
