Greatest Ever Mod brings together 60 of the finest soul, jazz, rock, ska and blues tracks ever recorded. Mod is a broad church and with the exception of a few genres (heavy metal included!) it has a little something to offer almost everyone.
These 3CDs perfectly illustrate the aesthetic that fulled the original Mod incarnation in the 1960s and shaped the music that came in its wake. From Booker T & The MGs and Small Faces to The Specials and Madness, Greatest Ever Mod is the essential guide to this most stylish of music and fashion movements.

This triple CD box set contains in total sixty tracks both from the original movement, and then its revival and gives you quite a varied type of music to listen to. The Mod movement arguably started off with Jazz as the music of the scene, but it evolved from there incorporating Ska, Rhythm and Blues as well as Soul, meaning that you have a really good selection of music here.
For some listening to this will bring back memories of younger days, but for others this will be the first time that they may have come across some of these bands and music and hopefully will be something that they enjoy. In all this is well worth listening to.
The other songs are okay but they're very common - nothing out of the ordinary - and they've got that bloody 'Do I love You' on it! if yoou wanted to clear the floor (except at a scooter rally) stick that one on!
But having said all that, this is a damn good little collection, even with Timebox's version of 'Begging', and good value for money indeed. These songs are all pretty well-known in mod circles and I have most of them anyway, but this is a nice, handy little box set to have.
