The original Mod Anthems box set last year provide to be very popular. So it is no surprise to see Rhino releasing another instalment this year – the Mod Anthems 2 box set.

It’s a case of ‘don’t fix what ain’t broken’ here, with the same formula applied to the second box set as the first. That’s pretty much a huge number of mod and mod-related classics sold cheap. In fact, this one is even cheaper than the last one.

Actually it does vary a little, this time it seems a little more soul and R&B-heavy, although the Small Faces make the cut for the non-soul minority.

Plenty of favourites though, all of which are listed below. If you want it you can pre-order now ahead of the 27th May shelf date, with the price for the three-disc set (and 85 tracks) at just £6.04.
