The early sixties bore
witness to a mass British youth movement that promptly acquired the universally
acknowledged name: Mod. Between 1962 and 1966, Mod culture dominated both the
fashion and music landscape, with the look and sound of young
Annotated and supported by the widely respected Mod Culture site, ‘Trojan Presents Mod Ska’ features 40 favourites of the original sixties scene, originally issued in the UK as such seminal record labels as Blue Beat, Island and Doctor Bird, 17 of which make their CD debut!
Great album of classic Ska and Rock Steady of the early-mid 1960s, many of which have not been released before. Very clean recordings with a full vibrant sound, they hardly sound dated at all. The accompanying booklet describes the surge of interest in Jamaican Ska music among British youth in the early 1960s, who at the time called it Blue Beat. Written by an early modernist who witnessed it first hand it recounts the Ska-focused club-life at the Flamingo, the Roaring Twenties, and the Scene Club in London's West End, and highlights the interaction between Black and White teenagers, the former being the son's and daughters of the initial wave of Jamaican immigrants. High energy dance music, not for the faint hearted
I am selling lots of American copies of CDs. All are new. These come from a warehouse clearance. Some are promotional copies; others are standard retail copies; many are rare out-of-print. Starting price is just 10 cents a CD.
The end is closer - we are definitely in the last month of sales. Final sale night will be Sunday 29th June. I have kept some of the best till last.
It has been fun, 2 years and over 5000 CDs sold. Lots of fantastic customers, thank you so much and I hope I have succeeded in unearthing some interesting obscurities. I will miss you and the kind messages that I have received.
Many are rare / obscure
/ never released in Australia.
Some come with different artwork; check the format description. Note that some have been in storage uncased for up to 20 years so may have small surface marking; where they do I have checked that they play perfectly.
All are sold without
plastic cases unless specifically stated as this reduces your postage cost, though some are in digipacks if that was how they were released. I can supply plastic cases but these are $1 extra to cover cost of the case plus extra postage.
Postage is $2.20 each for first and second item, then $1.10 per item for additional CDs over 2. For bigger orders I can ship up to 500 grams (10 regular CDs) for $7.50.
International buyers add $6 to the total. Because countries vary, if it costs less I'll refund the difference. For example up to 250 grams (3 CDs without cases) to the USA, Canada or UK is $7.20
New Zealand - $5.50 for first item, then $1 per item for additional CDs
