GREATEST EVER SKA & MOD

BMG



4cd

Released: 24th Jul 2020

£6.99


The mod subculture of the 1960s took pride in a distinct style: close attention was paid to clothing, transportation, fashion, and most importantly music.

Mods listened to a potent combination of Jamaican ska, rhythm & blues and soul imported from the USA, alongside powerpop and freakbeat from closer to home. All are represented on this 4CD, 80 track set.
