British Mod Sounds Volume 2: The Freakbeat & Psych Years

Eddie Piller on what Mods did next

Follow-up compilation features 95 tracks on 4CDs, 91 tracks on 6LPs and a 31-track 2LP set. Limited signed editions available.

Acid Jazz Records and Modcast founder Eddie Piller has curated a second volume of his rather good British Mod Sounds of The 1960s compilation. Volume 2 is dubbed The Freakbeat & Psych Years although it could be called ‘What Mods did next’ as it traces the scene from early 1965 to the end of the 1960s. It is available on three physical formats.

The limited version of British Mod Sounds Volume 2 features 4CDs and comes with a signed print.

This compilation tracks the development of the original Mod mainstays (the Small Faces, The Who, The Action, The Kinks), with a selection of future superstars (David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and Steve Howe of Yes are all represented here), alongside a few artists so obscure, that they never even got to release a record in the ’60s (but Eddie has tracked down the tapes nonetheless!).
