There are so many to choose from, but I have managed to narrow down 20 of the best budget mod compilations available to buy right now. Some great tracks and for less than you might think.
This one looks essential. A Slight Disturbance In My Mind – The British Proto-Psychedelic Sounds of 1966.
The term mod does cover a lot of ground musically, but hopefully this the mod’s guide to Record Store Day 2019 ticks most of the required boxes.
Seems to be the season of the box set. Next on the upcoming list is A Kaleidoscope Of Sounds: Psych & Freakbeat Masterpieces, which is actually a vinyl box set.
Another potential gem from Ace Records, that being Planet Mod – Brit Soul, R&B And Freakbeat From The Shel Talmy Vaults, which lands in April.
That’s a long title, but it tells you much of what you need to know. The How Is The Air Up There? 80’s Mod, Soul, Freakbeat Nuggets From Down Under box set is heading your way soon.
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.
