I’ve seen this on pre-order at Amazon for weeks, if not months, but without much detail. I think I’ve now managed to put the pieces of this budget Mod Jazz four-CD box set together.

It’s from a label called Real Gone Music and it’s essentially a collection of the genre. Plenty of big names and big tunes for not much money. Amazon doesn’t have a track listing, but we have found one here, which is reproduced below. Not a great deal that you will not know and as such, a good beginner’s collection or just all the tracks in one place on disc.

60 tracks in total, all apparently ‘Digitally Remastered and Enhanced For Superior Sound Quality’. If you want the box, it is out tomorrow and available from Amazon for just £7.41.

Oh yes, ignore the Amazon reviews, they seem to be for the previous series of (excellent) albums from Ace Records with the same name. All of which are pretty much essential.
