Product Description

Product Description

The Boogie Chillen 3CD set is the most enlightening and informative mod collection yet to see issue, not only providing a fascinating history lesson, but also delivering a compelling 3 ½ hours of great music. This companion 2LP limited edition selects 24 dancefloor-friendly highlights from the great set. At the start of the sixties, Britain bore witness to a new, brash youth movement, which up until the onset of hippy-dom later that decade, dominated the country s fashion and musical landscape. These young modernists embraced a smart, stylish look along with the coolest sounds emanating from the US, and later, Jamaica. While the subculture eventually faded from British mainstream consciousness, it has never disappeared altogether, attracting new followers worldwide with each new generation. Yet despite its enduring popularity, the music that inspired the original mod stylists has remained largely undocumented. Boogie Chillen sets to put the record straight, collecting some of the most popular and influential tracks on the burgeoning mod scene of the early sixties. Annotated and compiled by first generation mod, Rob Nicholls, the set takes a musical journey, highlighting an array of classic R&B, jazz and rock & roll classics that found favour among those considered Britain s coolest youths. This vinyl edition ranges from the elemental electric blues of John Lee Hooker and Howlin Wolf to the Latin grooves of Ray Barretto, via the New Orleans R&B of Huey Smith and the club soul sounds of James Brown and Ike & Tina Turner. It is this variety of styles that sets Boogie Chillen apart from other mod compilations: the early mod scene embraced all forms of popular music as long as it satisfied the discerning early mods taste for cool grooves and rocking rhythms.

What a refreshing compilation of tunes from the era of the originators of a movement that just won't die.
If any of you Mods out there have become dissolusioned with the music on the scene lately,or forgotten what the roots of the scene musically are,you won't go far wrong with with this fine selection of fledgeling Modernist movers...
Time to kick the Austin Powers look into touch,and remember what being a Mod is all about!!

Rob Nicholls has put together a solid, expansive collection of records that played an important part in shaping the early modernist movement. Very listenable and a good addition to the collection, Rob and Fantastic Voyage have done a good all round job on this CD, I enjoyed it.

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.

A fantastic range of late 50s and early 60s rhythm and blues, and much more. Never mind the mods and rockers debate this collection has been put together with care and flair. Will reward experts and novices to this era of music.

Brilliant Album for anyone who was part of the London Mod scene in the early 1960s. Especially if you attended The Scene of Flamingo Clubs.
