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.
Ok, not quite a reissue. Belfast Gypsies by Them is pretty much a new edition of this cult classic from the mid-1960s.
Just popping up on the upcoming list is The Prisoners – In From The Cold vinyl reissue, which is now via Acid Jazz.
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.
Possibly of interest to readers of these pages is the upcoming Just A Bad Dream: Sixty British Garage Nuggets 1981-89 box set.
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.
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 don’t subscribe to it, why not? But you can still pick up the new Shindig! magazine in newsagents and online right now.
