“This Is Mod” is part of a new series aimed at vinyl buyers who wants a genre specific compilation to excite their ears. Two sides of fantastic music, at an affordable price, cherry picked from Ace and its associated catalogues.

Compiled by Dean Rudland, who also writes the liner notes, “This Is Mod” takes you to the darkened cellars of Soho, where everyone is wearing the sharpest clothes and dancing to the finest most danceable sounds from Black America. Soul, R&B and a touch of jazz are the order of the day.

Within the grooves we have gritty southern soul from Clarence Carter and Jimmy Hughes, the sound of Memphis courtesy of James Carr, Danny White and Timmy Thomas, and R&B from Lowell Fulsom and Richard Berry.

There’s also nascent northern soul from, amongst others, Mary Love and Darrow Fletcher, making “This Is Mod” perfect intro for those who want the best music to go with their mohair.
