New compilation: Mod The New Religion on Outta Sight

by Modculture 6 April, 2015

I would guess that this is nothing to do with the similarly-titled book by Paul Anderson, but the Mod The New Religion compilation on Outta Sight is still worth a mention.

It is what you might describe as a ‘solid’ collection of tracks. Nothing here is going to worry the rarity brigade, but if you want a collection of (mostly) mod classics, that’s what you get.

27 tracks in all, bookended by two tracks from the Jimmy James & The Vagabonds (and Pete Meaden-produced) New Religion album of 1966, with the rest including the likes of Phil Unchurch, Slim Harpo, Eddie Bo, James Brown, Mongo Santamaria and so on.

The full track listing is below, with the album down for (I think) a CD-only release on 27th April 2015. You can pre-order one now for £9.99.
