Compiled by Ady Croasdell and Dean Rudland digging deep into record collections and record vaults (including labels, Arock, Accent, Brent, Goldband, King, Musicor, Modern and Fraternity) to find these 24 tracks, which includes three previously unreleased tracks. All are dance records from the sixties apart from John Fred & The Playboys, late fifties which seems the odd one out. Has some outstanding tracks including, Cat Dance The In Crowd, Dynamite Little Eva (previously unissued) Little Bob I Got Loaded, Tingling Eddy Giles and After Hours Paul & Rick (great instrumental). It sounds like this could be the first volume of a series on this Mod sixties dance theme. Good booklet by Dean Rudland. Issued on KENT CDKEND 431.
