Eddie Piller presents British Mod Sounds of the 1960s

New 100-track comp on CD and vinyl

Acid Jazz founder and Mod enthusiast Eddie Piller has curated a new 100-track compilation called British Mod Sounds of The 1960s which captures the essence of ‘60s Modernism, across six LPs or four CDs

Piller has a family connection to Mod royalty The Small Faces (Eddie’s mum ran the Small Faces’ fan club) and in 1979 he co-founded Mod Revival fanzine Extraordinary Sensations. Since then he’s become a well-known figure within the music industry, setting up and continuing to own the Acid Jazz record label, signing artists such as Jamiroquai and The Brand New Heavies, collaborating on compilations with Martin Freeman and broadcasting via his own Totally Wired Radio station.  

This new collection mixes the Mod mainstays (the Small Faces, The Who in embryonic form as The High Numbers, The Action, The Fleur De Lys), with a generous selection of future superstars (David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Marc Bolan, Jeff Beck and Graham Gouldman of 10cc are all represented here), and a few artists so obscure, so rare, that they never got to release a record in the ’60s, but Eddie has managed to track down the tapes nonetheless!

The same 100 tracks are on the 4CD set and the 6LP edition and both CD and vinyl versions are available as limited edition SIGNED (by Eddie) editions on Amazon in the UK. Signed 6LP black vinyl is also available for a limited time via Rough Trade in the UK, who also have unsigned 6LP clear vinyl edition.

In addition, there’s a 34-track ‘highlights’ version which is available as a 2LP set on black vinyl or red and blue coloured vinyl via indie stores, like Rough Trade in the UK.

All formats include sleeve notes by Paul ‘Smiler’ Anderson, author of the best-selling and highly regarded books ‘Mods: The New Religion’ and ‘Mod Art’. 

Eddie Piller presents British Mod Sounds of the 1960s will be released on 8 February 2022.
