Loved this CD and I got this a lot cheaper than waht the price is now! It Really Hurts Me Girl - The Carstairs , Nine Times - The Moments , You're My One Weakness Girl - The Street People , I Wanna Give You Tomorrow - Benny Troy and record that I WANT - Don't Send Me Away - Garfield Fleming (what a tune). :) I am the Happy SoulMan.

It is a great testament to the skill of the musicians, singers, writers, arrangers and producers of forty years ago that these Detroit production line models of disposable pop should now be awarded classic status and be so much in demand. This and its companion volume one, lovingly compiled for the English market, is subtitled 20 Collectable Modernist Soul Classics and are the floor filling sounds that echoed and spinned inside the Mod clubs in the mid sixties, made by acts such as the Miracles, Martha and the Vandellas, the Contours, Eddie Holland, Marvin Gaye, the Marvelettes, the Temptations, Chris Clark and many more.

Northern Soul was something different, although there are overlaps. These are all highly contagious dance tracks, with clattery trebly beats, pumping bass rhythms and excited, passionate vocals, and some of the rarer items, such as Barbara McNair's You're Gonna Love My Baby, would have cost a small ransom to acquire. Incidentally, the version of Gladys Knight's Just Walk In My Shoes is the 2.46 mix found on the British mono version of the LP Everybody Needs Love in 1968, some twenty seconds longer than elsewhere. This compilation would make a good companion set for The Trojan Mod Reggae Box Set and any good original mod group anthology that contains the Who, the Small Faces, the Birds, the Kinks, Creation and others of their ilk.

All 20 tracks are in club speaker friendly mono.

Most of the tracks on Mod Fave Raves Volume 1 are from 1964 and 1965, those on Volume 2 from 1965 and 1966. They contain some classic sounds from the peak years of mod and they're the perfect complement to the "Mod - the early years" compilations.

Buy it just for the two Moments tracks and then wonder at the pure quality that runs right through this cd.
