Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Looking Good: Mod Club Classics is a 20-song compilation that attempts to recapture the feeling of a night out at a mod club at the height of the mod scene in the late '60s. The music is a mix of soul Northern, Southern, and uptown, R&B, soul-jazz, and funky blues that is sure to get feet tapping and fingers snapping. The disc flows very smoothly from track to track and contains some stellar songs from big-time artists like B.B. King the down-and-dirty "I've Got Papers on You Baby", Ike & Tina Turner the dead funky "I Can't Believe What You Say", and Junior Wells the rocking "Checking on My Baby".

Other highlights include Young-Holt Trio's groovy "Wack Wack," the original "Louie Louie" by Richard Berry, the heartbreaking "I Keep Forgetting" by the amazing Chuck Jackson, Lowell Fulson's razor sharp "Tramp," and Sugar Pie DeSanto's peppy "Do the Whoo Pee." Mod scholars could argue the inclusion of some of the tracks and wonder where some of their favorites are, but the fact remains that this is one darn good dance party disc. So leave any objections at the door, roll back the carpet, and experience as the disc labels itself on the back cover "a symphony in midnight blue mohair."
