VA - Mod, Rhythm & Blues (2017)


Rhythm & Blues | FLAC | 2 CD | 520 Mb

Mods (originally ‘modernists’) emerged in Britain in the early 1960s: they were mostly smartly turned out young men who loved European fashion, R&B, motor scooters and late nights. They spent most of their wages on clothes, frequenting the new breed of shops sprouting up in London’s Carnaby Street. Though some pop groups of the day, like the Who and the Small Faces, came out of the Mod scene, the music that Mods chose to dance to in the Marquee and mod clubs like the Goldhawk was American soul and R&B. Here’s a fine selection of that music in this two-disc collection of R&B from the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.
