It’s back for yet another editor. Yes, the Rare Mod 6 compilation on Acid Jazz returns on 10th July 2015.
Of course, you can order one right now, with the album announced for both CD and vinyl, with 17 tracks in total. Those tracks are, like all the ‘Rare Mod’ series lost gems from the 1960s. Some have been released on EP via the Acid Jazz label, both others haven’t. So if you are a completist or you missed out on the single releases, then you might want to grab this.
So tracks you probably know include material from Sharon Tandy, The Montanas and The Ossie Layne Show, with lesser-known stuff including a track by The Koobas, who numbered Jeremy Bulloch in their line up, who later went on to play Boba Fett in the Star Wars series.
Anyway, check out the track listing below. If you want to order, the CD is down at £10.99, with the vinyl listed at £19.03.
