Our Generation - 75 Mod Classics Box Set

Our Generation – 75 Mod Classics Box Set

I know, another of those ‘best of’ collection. But this Our Generation box set has been put together by Eddie Piller and for a general overview, looks a pretty decent option.

Of course, within the 75 tracks selected there’s every chance that you’ll have a number of these already. But if you want a box with everything from The quick, Timebox, Graham Bond Organisation and Les Fleurs De Lys through to  The Jam, Secret Affair and Dexy’s, taking in some R&B, ska and soul along the way, then it’s worth checking out. A good few you might not expect on such a collection too – like Pow Wow by Manny Corchado for a start.

You can see the full track listing below.

Anyway, in addition to the box release, there’s also a promo video worth watching too – that’s also below.

If you want the box set, it is available for £9.99 right now.
