this was a long time coming but finally part 4 of this series is here, very obscure tracks here even though i have stuff by a lot of the bands featured on here, this disc is great!!!! 47 minutes of timeless mid 60s mod and garage rock from the london scene of that time, the booklet is very informative as it gives you deatails on each artist, the song in question that is on this disc and they sure gave this the best mastering job they could from these almost 50 year old acidates, really good research and very well done, im very fond of the last 3 discs in this series and i can only hope for more, once again this covers a few range of mid 60s fans MOD, PSYCH, GARAGE AND FREAKBEAT if you like that kind of music as much as i do, then you to will be giving this cd 5 stars like i just did, this is worth every bit of the price!!!!!! i love it..................

Eddie Piller and the team at Acid Jazz bring us volume 4 in the `Rare Mod' series, and what a corker it is. Compiled by Damian Jones and Richard Searle, this CD features 16 slabs of Underground Rhythm `n' Blues, Psych & Soul.

Starting with a storming version of `Big Bird', this recording comes from Dog Soul; a band made up by members of The Artwoods, The Kinks and Dog Soldier and has a great horn section. Next up is the excellent `Tell Daddy' by the All Night Workers, a Mod Soul outfit from West London very much in the vein of the Alan Bown Set.

The legendary Gary Farr & The T-Bones then give us `Together Forever', a track recorded in late 1966 and intended to be their fourth single - unfortunately they split up and the song remained unreleased. The Unknown Mod Girl gives a great performance of Mel Torme's `Coming Home Baby' before The Mountain Men's `Too Many People Around' - the sole A-side from this band from South Wales. Syd's Crowd, a band from 1966/67 of which very little is known, contribute `Times Are Good Babe' and `Road Runner' to this compilation, both of which are really good.

One of the highlights of this collection is the inclusion of a long lost recording from The Artwoods - one of my favourite bands. `Hoochie Coochie Man', the R `n' B classic which was Art Wood's favourite track, was recorded in 1964, although it is not known if it was intended as an A-side or for a radio session. Either way, it's worth the admission price alone. The best track on the entire album, in my opinion, is the Hammond saturated `Hey Gyp' from The Unknown Mod Band - that's right, Acid Jazz really have no idea who recorded this track.

With further contributions from Row Boat, Perfumed Garden, The Wild Ones, Virgin Sleep and Tomorrow's Children this collection is right up my street - mid to late 60s sounding Mod bands playing hard edged R `n' B and Soul with a bit of a Freakbeat vibe thrown in for good measure. Well worth checking out.

Some pure gems hidden away for years but they finally get given an airing and the wait was it. No big names but plenty of quality.

Not particularly mod and theres a reason why some things are rare - no-one needs to hear them again. Thats the case for most of this, from karaoke versions of Comin' Home to standard bar band blues covers. A few good tracks, like The Artwoods for instance. But for the most part leave this alone, you'll only put it on a pile marked ' might play one day when I'm in the mood' and you wont.
