Well their definately classics, and I would imagine most Mods would like most tracks. Looks like a bargain to me !
I great value for money c.d. for anyone who hasn't already got the tracks.
I have the CD too Jade and think it is really good. I have just about all the songs on either vinyl or other CD's but for a few quid its an excellent buy.
Who remembers Mods Mayday 1979 Album includes Squirre, Secret Affair amongst other Mod bands.
It wasn't very well recorded was it?....But at the age of 13 it was the album to have. A lot of people bought it just cos it had a scooter on the front. A Vespa 150 Super.
You re right not great recording but great album cover.
Very good selection, nearly all i would play at any mod do
Bit late....Good selection of tunes on CD many are classics, there are too many tunes to define one Mod classics CD/album, that's why there are a lot of Mod compilations. Getting to Mods Mayday 79 LP is a classic one of my first LPs, sound not the best but I like it still to this day, raw live Mod! Went to The Bridgehouse in Canning Town for the reunion gig before it was knocked down in the 90s. Mods Mayday 79 LP is a revival mod Classic.
Good selection, across the board music, many classics!
i think jade lizas original question was are all these tracks mod classics ?
well i would say although they all have mod credentials theyre not all the true definition of "classic"
so i woudnt worry if you dont like all the tracks as some are for completists and searchers for the obscure .
fast forward a few years though jade liza and it will be the mod obscure that fascinates you most !
What is a CLASSIC, i think it's down to each person to define what they call a classic
