CD Reviews

Great cheap MOD compilation
Mister Charlie | Los Angeles, CA | 08/28/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Curious about what the music of "the Mods" was like back in the '60s? The Who's QUADROPHENIA certainly wanted to tell us a little about the Mods.

This cd and its companion "Vol. 2" are the absolute perfect place to start checking out the sounds of this British pop/rock music, each with 20 tracks.... featuring bands that recorded on the Immediate label, such as: The McCoys (Vol. 2 includes "Hang on Sloopy"), Amen Corner, P.P. Arnold, The Poets, The Mockingbirds (later to become 10cc), an early surprisingly peppy single from NICO who went on to musical fame with the Velvet Underground, The Nice, Tony Rivers & The Castaways, a Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green's early balladry) single, Billy Nicholls, Twice as Much, Rod Stewart, and others. The most well-represented here, though, is the SMALL FACES. Not to be confused with The Faces, which Rod Stewart was in for awhile. No, it's Marriott/Lane's powerhouse THE SMALL FACES, which get 5 tracks on Vol. 1.

You get covers of Dylan, Richie Valens and the Stones among all the original material, some of which comes off like lesser versions of other '60s bands like the Beach Boys, or appear to be inspired by R&B and the Spector Sound. So, although these cds aren't packed with timeless masterpieces, they are nevertheless a great window into a particular time and place (1965-1970, London).

Good, concise liner notes too."
