Don’t let the picture (showing the famous ‘64 Briton clash between Mods and Rockers) get you on the wrong track. This ain’t a selection of British Mod faves but my pick of highly danceable tunes from (mostly) the US, for sure to file under the Soul-tag. I’ve never understood what’s the difference between Blue Eyed Soul, Northern Soul and Deep Soul, for me it’s simply the sounds I’d love to hear at a party. Over the top-productions with hilarious singing, heavy on the brass, inviting you to Move and do the Jerk, the Shing-a-ling, the Boogaloo, and le Monkiss. I’ve collected all these tracks randomly since years now not so much focusing on the rareness but just on that cool Mod approach. Remember this little blog started with UC001 – The Mod Syde, and here’s more. You’re invited to the Mod Party! All dudes driving a Vespa (like me) or a Lambretta will get free drinks! Put your hands on your hip, shake your legs, put your right foot in the air, put your left foot behind your right foot, let your backbone slip, and, mostly, maintain your cool and have fun!!!!!
