New style icon at Record Turnover: Graham Gouldman, Mockingbird and songwriter extraordinaire (The Yardbirds and The Hollies are only two of the bands he provided with material). Below is my playlist from the mod themed Friday Casual night last week. A fairly wide interpretation of it, but as it was said on Friday, that Saturday’s Children single sounds so much like The Hollies! For an overview of the original, soul side of mod, check out DJ and soul fan Randy Cozens’ Mod Top 100. Not surprisingly, someone made it into a 4-part download several years ago, and it’s still around.
