Nothing new here, but Mods In The UK is worth a mention purely because it has price on its side.
This is a new / upcoming compilation album from Not Now Music. The only thing I know about that particular label is that it tends to be behind mod and soul budget compilations and box sets, including the likes of Mod Rhythm and Blues, A Shot of Rhythm and Blues and Mod From The Jazz Side for example. The common theme there is pack in plenty of tracks and keep the price rock bottom.
This is a slightly different tact, as it isn’t a budget CD collection. This time the label has gone down the heavyweight vinyl route. Although it is budget and the tracks are once again the kind of thing you would generally expect on a mod compilation of this type. Not ‘bang obvious’ tracks (well, apart from a couple), but not particularly rare tunes either. See what you think with the track listing below.
As I said at the start, this album does have price on its side when you consider it is a heavyweight vinyl release, although there is no mention of any kind of remastering. So take that into consideration. That price? You can pre-order now for £10.67 ahead of the 20th April 2018 release date.
