In the first of a new series, we invited top tunesmith Paul Orwell to fill his imaginary Modernist Jukebox with 20 defining tracks. Check them out plus a Spotify playlist of the majority of the tunes selected.
If you like the idea of some classic British R&B played by a band from the modern era, then you need The Shoots debut 7-inch on the Heavy Soul label.
Another potential winner from a label specialising in them – Marylebone Beat Girls 1964-1967.
Not all of the material on here would come under the mod banner, but for obvious reasons we are featuring Making Time – A Shel Talmy Production, which is coming out via Ace Records.
Celebrating 50 years, Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band Live at Klooks Kleek is back as a limited edition piece of vinyl.
If you haven’t paid much attention to the series in the past, then you probably want The Best Of Rare Mod Box Set in your collection.
If you don’t subscribe to it, why not? But you can still pick up the new Shindig! magazine in newsagents and online right now.
Cherry Red always does a good box set, so I’ve high hopes for Night Comes Down – 60 mod, R&B and freakbeat London nuggets.
