Attack - 'About Time! Definitive Mod-Pop Collection, 1967-1968' (RPM),
This review is from: About Time: The Definitive Mod-Pop Collection 1967-1968 (Audio CD)
A superb nineteen track collection of The Attack's unreleased gems, Decca singles and radio sessions. About every cut here is truly out-standing, like "Anymore Than I Do", "Feel Like Flying", "Try It" (saw the Grassroots perform this song on the oldies circuit many moons ago), the awesome "Go Your Way", the total grooving "Colour My Mind", "Lady Orange Peel" (great guitar licks), their happening Stones cover "Sympathy For The Devil", the uptempo "Neville Thumbcatch". Several line-up changes took place during the short time The Attack was together, but the most vital personnel appears to have been Richard Shirman-vocals, Geoff Richardson-guitar, George Watt-organ, Kenny Harold-bass and Chris Allen-drums. Comes with nicely assembled 14-page booklet packed with plenty of info, pics, art work and complete band discography. Essential UK '60's psych. Should do a LOT for fans of the Action, Q 65, Open Mind, Syn, early Who, the Creation and Les Fleurs De Lys. Another upside with this CD it is has nearly an all-different track listing as The Attack - 'Early Daze' disc that was released on the Angel Air label a few years back. Highly recommended.

Come on, man...
Not even the Beatles cuts are all outstanding!
Don't get me wrong, I didn't hate this album, but you're bulding huge anticipation for something pretty mediocre.
My only real problem with it is the title, putting "Definitive Mod-Pop Collection" is misleading. The worst thing is, they know it! On the booklet, someone asks the lead singer if they were mods, and he answers that one of the guys on the band used to wear "fashionable clothes"! Would you say that's the criteria to call a band "mod"??
