Product Description

Compiled and annotated by Lois Wilson (Mojo, Record Collector), Get On The Right Track brings together 90 magnificent recordings, mostly R&B, but with a smattering of jazz and ska, which reflect what mods would have been enjoying on the early to mid sixties club scene. When Jamaican born Duke Vin, a former DJ on Tom The Great Sebastian s Beat Street System, set up his own system in 1955, he got the place jumping. The sound system was like nothing London had witnessed before. It was loud, exciting and had no curfew. Duke Vin inspired Count Suckle, another Ladbroke Grove resident, who set up a rival system and the pair soundtracked the first generation West Indians blues parties with a playlist of US R&B 45s. Club Eleven and the Flamingo attracted newly settled Jamaicans too. Out of these clubs and sound systems, mod grew. These mods were defined by their impeccable music taste and their smart clobber. They would dance their nights away at the Scene, to records spun by Guy Stevens, the UK Sue label manager and one of mod s main pivots. They also frequented the Marquee and Count Suckle s Roaring Twenties. The first two discs on Get On The Right Track collect together the R&B, blues, soul, jazz and ska singles you would have heard at such clubs. Disc 3, meanwhile, captures the sounds from the same period (many of which were unreleased in the UK at the time) that light up the mod scene today. Get On The Right Track has been carefully compiled to avoid track overlap with Fantastic Voyage s previous mod collection Boogie Chillen, and is also available as a 2LP vinyl collector s edition, featuring 32 of the most sought-after tracks and a colour insert.

Format: Audio CD
This excellent set contains 90 tracks of original rhythm and blues, ska, mod jazz and early soul compiled by Mojo and Record Collector's Lois Wilson. If you have ever been a mod or just love US and Jamaican music from the 1960s you need this!
Disc one concentrates on bluesier sounds including many that fuelled the British R&B boom such as John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom and Dimples both covered by The Animals, Billy Boy Arnold's I Wish You Would covered by The Yardbirds, Slim Harpo's Don't Start Crying Now covered by Them, Freddy King's Hide Away versioned by John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and Slim Harpo's I Got Love If You Want It covered by The Kinks and adapted by legendary London mod Pete Meaden into The Who's debut single issued when they were The High Numbers, I'm The Face. Many of the tracks here were released on the legendary UK Sue label run by Scene club DJ Guy Stevens including Louisiana Red's I Done Woke Up, The Megatons' Shimmy, Shimmy, Walk and Russell Byrd's Hitch Hike. Early Blue Beat label mod faves Dumplins by Byron Lee and Oh Carolina by The Folkes Brothers also feature.
Disc 2 has a more soulful mix with highlights including Barrett Strong's Money (covered by The Rolling Stones and The Beatles), James Brown's Shout and Shimmy (covered by The Who), The Contours' manic Do You Love Me, Marvin Gaye's Hitch Hike (covered by The Stones), Ray Charles' Get On The Right Track Baby (covered by Georgie Fame), the infectious, jazzy Scene Club floor filler You Can't Sit Down by the Phil Upchurch Combo and the sweet Chicago soul of Major Lance's Delilah.

This CD box is too great to account. But the box is not exactly a box with exactly fit for the MOD movement songs. Hardly has very famous songs and yes I would play this CD with bright undergroud music from R & B, Jazz and little anything SKA. I think I can classify as the B side songs MOD movement.

All songs are brilliant but I do not remember anything of the MOD movement but the root of the MOD movement with songs that inspired or create the songs that they listened very MODs. It's very American undergroud. Well the same root. I was impressed because I never heard any of these songs in my life and all are excellent. The selection was well chosen to not much more popular works with very high quality.

Almost nothing in this box is exactly pop. But if you like that style of music is one of the best things that created the MODs in england. I love the mods, and I was even more fanatic with this box. Is Brilhan. It is not to dance but to hear exactly where that came from it all.

Again... not exactly pop but very side B or underground. Brilliant! The roots of Mod songs in UK like The Who and SmallFaces! Very American Black (Blues and Soul) Music.

PS: My point of view in here is a person in Brazil who collects this type of sound. Very old USA American music hardly existed here in the pass. Ok?

A fabulous compilation of genuine tracks from the heady days of the London scene. An authentic recollection for those who were there and a perfect legacy for those who love the lineage of soul but were not there.

Excellent compilation, really feeling the mood of the era. Obvious cult classics combined with a selection interesting tracks from left field. Good balance between Jazz, Ska, Soul and RnB. Get It!
