The Best Of Rare Mod

Various Artists

acid jazz
  • limited clear orange lp

    Released: 17th May 2024


For the first time, the "Best Of Rare Mod' is available on vinyl, with choice selections from across the series.

The ’Rare Mod’ series has been one of the most enduring Acid Jazz-curated comps of recent years. This included the CD Volumes 1-3 and a 3CD Boxset, uncovering a host of lost classics that capture sound of the original Mod scene: Hard R’n’B, Beat & Soul, and archetypal Pop from the 1960s.

The track-list contains a couple from the legendary Fleur De Lys, as well as a track from their brief billing as ‘Shyster’. Elsewhere, there are several productions from unsung hero and prolific session man Graham Dee, and even a turn from young David Bowie performing with The Riot Squad! An absolute must-have collection of the less-heard tracks from one of the most iconic periods of British music.
