Good collection, Dr Robert!,
This review is from: Boogie Chillen: Early Mod's First-Choice Vinyl (Audio CD)
Like this collection but I already have most of the songs on it and certainly know most of them but I've been into this sort of stuff for more than 30 years.
One query (and I got a b*llocking off an original mod for dissing the Everly Bros on another review of a mod collection): Red River Rock? Rumble? Would mods in the 60s have liked these songs? Personally, I like them, but they sort of make me think of BSA Gold Stars, Brylcreem, leather jackets, winklepickers ....
Good collection anyway. Maybe the mod/rocker musical divide wasn't as wide or as black and white as lots of us think. Be interested to hear what Rob says.
Another query: Why 'The Twist'? Surely that would've been a bit mainstream? Only asking out of interest - I wasn't around then.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said that you like them! Everyone has their own tastes and 'Rumble' is quite a cool track. What we think of as Mod now is with the benefit (or hindrance) of hindsight, to those that were their originally there wasn't any hindsight, just stuff that either caught their ear or didn't.
