Available on pre-order, The Best Of Rare Mod vinyl compilation is both new and a coloured vinyl issue.

Well, new might be pushing it a bit. There has been a Rare Mod CD box, Rare Mod standalone compilation albums on CD, and, of course, wonderful vinyl EPs that have formed the backbone of the series.

But there hasn’t been a vinyl compilation album until now – and that’s the pull here.

The series focused on lost classics that capture the sound of the original Mod scene, and this single album, over 14 tracks, offers a taster of that, including a couple of tunes from the legendary Fleur De Lys, as well as a track from their brief billing as ‘Shyster’. Some lesser-known names, of course (including several productions from the unsung hero and prolific session man Graham Dee), and a big name too – a young David Bowie performing with The Riot Squad.

All the tracks are listed below. It’s out on an orange vinyl and lands on 17th May 2024 for around £24.
