Take My Tip – 25 British Mod artefacts

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.

Emi_mod EMI has a new ‘Mod’ themed compilation in the shops – this time going back to source for  Take My Tip – 25 British Mod artefacts from the EMI vaults.

It’s the first in a series of albums from the new Zonophone offshoot, which will focus on British music from 1963 – 1969. Whether half of these tracks really come under the ‘Mod’ banner is open to question, but there’s plenty of beat and Brit soul rarities here for a budget price (25 for £6.99) so even if you skip a few, it’s not bad value.

We’ll have a review here soon and hopefully a few to give away. Keep reading for the full tracklisting. And if you like what you read, it’s released on 4th June 2007.
