We gotta face it here, the Brits had the lock on both the fashion and the music in the early eighties. The mod black and white trend, in both color of fabric and players, with it's island beat and strong horn sections got people up and moving on the dance floor. And it didn't sacrifice it's edge for the sake of a danceable hook or a pleasant pop tune. There were strong opinions here along with the driving bass beats and such. A jacket, a hat and a pair of distinctive shades are the uniform of the day. This collection is a good look at the cream of the crop. A pair of tasseled loafers and some crazy checked socks on the front cover let you in on the game and if that's not enough there's a group of photos on the other side to get you a little closer to the action. Slip this one onto the record-changer at your next hop and see the kids hit the floor and skank, wiggle and pogo the night away.
