4.0 out of 5 stars Sharp tunes, 4 Aug 2003

This review is from: Looking Good: Mod Club Classics (Audio CD)
Although I've never been a fan of Northern Soul, I've always loved the 'mod' sound of the early sixities. This album (I've got the vinyl version) sets out to recreate the atmosphere of those Soho clubs where the first wave of mods grooved to soulful sounds.
Almost all of the right sounds are covered, organ-based jazz, blues, rhythm and blues and of course soul - Make me Yours by Bettye Swann tugs at the heart while there's no doubt what Suger Pie de Santo means when she sings Do The Whoo Pee.
Where this differs from many of the Northern Soul compiliations that are around at the moment is in the quality of the selection.
None of these songs were hits but they all deserved to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOD Classics, 12 Jun 2009

This review is from: Looking Good: Mod Club Classics (Audio CD)
There are some essential MOD tracks here for anyones collection. The first two tracks are a little slow but then it thumps into 'She's Looking Good' the title track and there's no going back. You can imagine yourself dancing away in a Soho club with a smart suit, polished shoes and well dressed girls, all engrossed in the great sounds. If you get tired of dancing by track 13 then you can stand at the bar and tap your feet to the hip sounds and take in the atmosphere. It's well worth the trip.

This review is from: Looking Good: Mod Club Classics (Audio CD)
A well thought out combination of everything that should appeal to Mods all of ages, shapes and sizes. It should be compulsory listening before being awarded your parka.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the songs are a bit 'late' to be truly mod, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It makes you realise why there are still mods around fifty years later. The styles and the music are just the best.
My niggle is lots of the songs are quite late - 1966-67 and one is from 1970 - and one wasn't even released until the early 90s!!
I think they should have stuck to stuff from the early 60s and late 50s to keep it more authentically 'mod'.
