Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already had quite a few great Soul and R&B singles from my early Mod days and have often been amazed at just how good some of the B sides are on these tracks. I will start off with the B side to a record I have had since 1982. 'Mockingbird' by Inez Foxx was the first record released on the British Sue label in 1963 (as far as I am aware), as well as the main track being superb the B side called 'He's the one You Love' is fantastic too. So what are your own favourite B sides to these crackin records.

    • Very true Harry, I do not know a soul who is into the scene and does not listen to other music genres, a lot different to when I was first into it all. I love a lot of the post punk stuff and have a decent collection of vinyls reflecting it. I like the psych stuff but tbh do not have much in the way of records.

    • I believe and always will believe that there is no such thing as Mod music. To me, it has always been about the music that Mods listen to. Which is usually, the best, most diverse and sometimes eclectic musical genres of any given time... Being a Mod is about being stylishly progressive, in the coolest possible way, without quarter. While still appreciating the good taste in others, even if they do it better and having the courage to stand by your own individual tastes and principles regardless... Bury me a Mod? Too fuckin' right.

    • Very well put Gary, even if I did not always appreciate the good taste of others ha ha.

    • I do believe the operative word is 'good' Chris. If you just put the word 'taste' you may well get away with it ;0) Ha,ha,ha

    • I could not have put it any better myself Gary, cheers mate.

    • I agree Gary,  i think Smoove and Turrell are outstanding and their physical appearance, couldn't be further from the Mod look.

    • A brilliant sound Al, which to me is what music is all about ;0)

    • True indeed! Alongside mod related music, I enjoy Peter Gabriel era Genesis and the album Kilimanjaro by The Teardrop Explodes. 

    • Kilimanjaro is a fantastic album. I have not listened to it for a long time tbh but will look it out and give it a spin again. One song that I recall that is class is 'When I Dream.'

    • Bouncing babies is my fave tune, on Kilimanjaro.
