• Various Artists - Stirring Up Some Mod Soul Action - The Original Sound of UK Club Land

WELCOME TO THE CLUB! And our latest adventures in U.K. Club Land where we continue our exploration of the 'Club Beat' - the roots of Mod, R&B and Soul - that coalesced in the bohemian melting pot of Soho, London, post WW2.

In this chapter we explore the roots of the 'Mod' generation that was born in and around Soho at the turn of the Sixties. Our journey takes us to genre defining clubs such as the subterranean 'Club Americana', hidden in the basement of the Mapleton Hotel, The Flamingo - THE Mod hangout in the West End - and the ground-breaking Scene Club where Guy Stevens hosted his pioneering R&B Disc Nights which cemented the sound and face of Modernism.

Features hits by Lee Dorsey and Mary Wells and new-to-CD tracks including: 'Russian Roulette' by Lester Lanin, 'Steppin' High' by Little Luther and many rarities.

'I'm still a mod, I'll always be a mod, you can bury me a mod.' - Paul Weller

Illustrated and informative liner notes.
