The Jam

The Jam - his is the Modern World (1977)[ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]

The US release had a different track order and added the single All Around The World which was a non-LP single in the UK released after In The City. The single had been their biggest UK hit to date, peaking at #13, a placement they would not match until 1979, when The Eton Rifles peaked at #3. (Thereafter, no domestically released single would ever reach a peak position of lower than #4.)

The only single off the album was The Modern World. While it was a minor hit, peaking at #36, it failed to capitalize on the headway into the singles market forged by the massive success of All Around The World

The Kinks

The Kinks - Lola Versus Powerman And The Moneygoround (1970)

Lyrically, Lola versus Powerman is a satirical look at the various facets of the music industry, including song publishers ("Denmark Street"), unions ("Get Back in Line"), the hitmaking machine ("Top of the Pops"), accountants and business managers ("The Moneygoround"), and the road ("This Time Tomorrow"). "Apeman" finds Davies becoming fed up with it all and expressing a desire to leave society and go swinging through the jungle. The closer, "Got to Be Free", is an anthem for maintaining personal independence in the face of all opposition. The album's most famous song, "Lola" (about an encounter with a person of ambiguous gender) actually has little to do with the album's theme.

Musically, the album is an extremely varied affair, contrasting gentle ballads like "Get Back in Line" and "A Long Way From Home" against songs like "Rats" and "Powerman", two of the hardest rockers in the Kinks repertoire. "Denmark Street" and "The Moneygoround", like much of Ray Davies's work, pay homage to the English music hall tradition.

Vol. 3-Maximum R & B-Doin the Mod

Mais uma coletânea mod, falar o que? Escuta aí! =p

Whereas the first two volumes of 'Doin' The Mod' concentrated on the jazzy end of R&B, based around theHammond organ, this CD is dominated by the harmonica, dueling with snotty, snarling vocals & raucous 12-bar blues guitar. All the tracks are valuable collector's items & many have never been reissued before, making this an essential purchase for any Mod or 60s aficionado. Remastered from the original Pye tapes. Artists include The Spectres (who later mutated into Status Quo), Jimmy Page plays guitar on many tracks, Rod Stewart sings backing vocals on a track by Jimmy Powell & The Dimensions, The Kinks, The Riot Squad, The Primitives & many more. 30 tracks in all. 2001.

The Mod Scene - Volume 2

Decca Originals

The UK Blues Scene (1964-1971)

Dos arquivos da Decca Records UK chega The Blues Scene (1999). Essa antologia de 25 faixas cobre as contribuições desse selo ao renascimento do R&B com um toque de rock dos anos 60. O movimento ainda alimentaria super grupos de heavy metal tais como Cream, Led Zeppelin e o maravilhoso Fleetwood Mac.

From the archives of Decca Records UK comes the Blues Scene (1999). This 25-track anthology covers the label's copious contributions to the 1960s renaissance of rhythm and blues influenced rock. The movement would ultimately seed heavy metal supergroups such as Cream, Led Zeppelin and the seminal incarnation of Fleetwood Mac. Fittingly, the revolving-door personnel of John Mayall's assorted Bluesbreakers are particularly worthy of note. They not only commence and conclude this compilation, but more importantly Mayall also provided an entrance for a host of promising young talent such as Peter Green, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Eric Clapton and Aynsley Dunbar all of whom would eventually become internationally recognized icons. Among the Bluesbreaker's offerings presented here are the powerful instrumental "Curly", as well as The "Supernatural", which boasts the distinctive fretwork of Peter Green, "Steppin' Out" featuring Eric Clapton and an incendiary early live take of "I Need Your Love". Another interesting facet is the wide spectrum of American legends whose association with Deccabrought their music to new generations and audiences. Selections from Eddie Boyd ("Key To The Highway", "Blue Coat Man" and "Dust My Broom"), Otis Spann ("Pretty Girls Everywhere"), as well as Champion Jack Dupree ("24 Hours", "Barrel House Women" and "Third Degree") are among the highlights. In the case of the latter title, Dupree had a little help from both Mayall and Clapton on this 1966 recording. The label also heralded artists such as Alexis Korner ("Early In The Morning" and "Night Time Is The Right Time") and Savoy Brown ("Taste & Try Before You Buy", "Train To Nowhere" and "Train To Nowhere") who would have a much stronger impact in Europe than in the States. As such, Blues Scene (1999) is a worthwhile assessment of Decca's vaults, and a valuable primer for the novice. Interested parties should also note the other entries in this series -- including the R&B Scene (1999) and the Northern Soul Scene (1999). ~ Lindsay Planer, All Music Guide

Decca Originals

The Mod Scene (1962-1968)

Este álbum com 25 músicas é muito mais do que somente uma excursão aos extensos domínios da inglesa Decca Records' vaults - é também, de fato, uma viagem pela playlist dos clubes Mods mais apreciados da Inglaterra da metade pro fim dos anos 60; dificilmente uma música dessa coleção já chegou perto de figurar em alguma parada musical, isso no Reino Unido (muito menos do que nos EUA), mas muito do que está aqui foi selecionado localmente em Londres dentre os mods que foram a audiência da maioria dessas bandas.

This 25-song CD is much more than just an excursion into the farther reaches of English Decca Records' vaults — it's also a de facto tour of the playlists of some of England's hottest mod clubs of the mid-/late '60s; hardly a sound on this collection ever made it anywhere near a chart listing, anywhere in the U.K. (much less the U.S.A.), but a lot of what is here did get picked up locally in London among the mods that made up the audiences of most of these bands.
Considering how badly England's Decca Records fared in the middle-late 1960's (apart from the Rolling Stones, the Small Faces, and the Moody Blues) in signing really solid acts, this is an astonishingly good collection of soul-influenced, mod-oriented singles from the company's vaults.
A few of the acts included, such as the Small Faces, Tom Jones, St. Louis Union, Chris Farlowe, and the Amen Corner, made some kind of splash on the charts, but most of the musicians here got their chance on these single sides, failed to find success, and disappeared into the mist of musical history.

The CD jumps headfirst into the kind of hard-rocking, intense soul numbers that were played to death in London' mod clubs, even if they never scraped even the lower reaches of the charts. The sound on these singles tells you right away why most of these groups were never going to make it as world-class recording acts, being too raw and direct — without the distinctive hooks to get more than a listen from any radio deejays. By themselves, the Ronnie Jones track, coupled with those by Tom Jones, Steve Aldo, Graham Gouldman, Poets, the Eyes of Blue, and the Quik, justify the cost of this $20 import.

The sound is excellent throughout, and it's also reassuring on some level to learn from the notes that Decca is digging so deeply into its vaults that these acts are nearly as obscure to the people producing this compilation as they are to us.

If you wanna be a MOD - then you have to download this!!
See you later.
