I've just purchased this, the last instalment in the legendary Kent's "Mod Jazz" series. Haven't listened to it yet, but the tracklist is enough guarantee.



Mine arrived today and after first listen a big thumbs up; a couple of pot boilers in there but those far outweighed by the quality.
And will you shorten the sleeves, love? I'm not a gorilla.

I've ordered a copy of this from the new Ace releases (it's yet to arrive). 
Also ordered a copy of the latest Mod Jazz instalment if only for completist's sake; I have found some in the series to be a bit patchy but, as we know, jazz is a broad church and they'll be something to appeal to many on each disc;)


That Hungary disc sounds intriguing, please tell us if it's worthy when you have a listen, will you?

Arrived today and...yes, it's worthy of a listen. They were very found of that fuzz guitar sound. Sarolta Zalatney is an artiste who has immediately struck my ear and worthy of further investigation.
Some of the songs have that jaunty femme pop arrangement with strings and things, think of stuff that Lulu or Sandie would have recorded in the late 60s and that'll give you an idea. Booklet is beautifully designed as well with, as you'd expect from Ace, exhaustively researched biogs and repros of quite wonderful record sleeves.
