VA - Keep Lookin; 80 More Mod, Soul & Freakbeat Nuggets [2014] (3 x CD's)

 

UK MOD, SOUL, FREAKBEAT

VA - Keep Lookin; 80 More Mod, Soul & Freakbeat Nuggets [2014] (3 x CD's)

This is actually the second volume after the looking back CD box set that was released a couple of years back, this one is just as good, most all songs on here by Johns Children, Jim Sullivan, In Crowd and most of the other artists here are the more obscure tracks we where not used to hearing to often, this box set is as good as the last one. This is timeless music if you were into mid 60's British mod or beat, the label sure put a great effort into making this the best it could be, just the photos alone give you such insight into how it was in London some 50 years ago when the who and the kinks where becoming the biggest bands in the UK to dominate this scene. Anyway the artists on here never got as big as those bands but are both JUST AS WORTHY as the Kinks , the Who or the Small Faces. This music really brings my mind to smoke filled dance halls and endless nights of fun that was a great thing for this era. This box set is a phenomenal document to the uk mod , soul and beat boom of 1965 to 67 before psyche really took over. (Amazon)

I posted this in the comments section a few days ago, as a request. It is so good I thought I should make it available for those who missed it.
