I agree with most of the other review. Well done, Charly indeed.
My only complaint concerns the cover picture of a bunch of mods dancing. Now, I'm sure that's not the Scene Club! If anyone's got a copy of 'Mods!' by Richard Barnes they'll be able to prove me right or wrong. Unfortunately I loaned my copy to one of my daughter's teenage friends so will probably never see it again, but that same photo is in that book and it will tell you in the back where it was taken. I'm sure it's not the Scene though! Answers on a plain postcard, please!
I think a far better photo would have been that one of Mikey Tenner, one of the top faces of the era, looking like he's whizzing off his t**s, dancing with Sandy Sargent (who married Ian Maclagan of the Small Faces)in the Scene Club.
Hair splitting perhaps, but mod is all about attention to detail, n'est ce pas?
Otherwise, good collection, and along with that 'Looking Good' double LP of a few years ago, one of the best mod compilations around.
2/5/13 Ignore my complaint. It IS the Scene Club! (tThanks Dogrobber!)
20/08/13 It's NOT the Scene Club, it's a pub in London! (thanks Barry!)

Sorry gents , but this is NOT the Scene club . its a room above a pub in London .There are a few pictures wrongly accredited as being the Scene club in the 'Mods' book .Mickey Tenner and various other faces of that era have confirmed it as not being the Scene club . Thought i'd help with your query ! :)

Thanks, Barry, I didn't think it was the Scene. Not that I would know as I was only about 2 when it closed down. I just remember an older bloke in a pub, who'd been an original London mod, getting quite worked up over that picture when me and my mates (this is about 30 years ago) were showing him the book. He was emphatic that lots of the pics were wrong. the book was fairly new out then and our bible!
