Via Modculture we learnt that the Mod Anthems collection is coming out as a limited edition vinyl release in May.
Although it is smilar, it is not quite the same because the original release was an 80-track release covering three CDs. This is a double heavyweight vinyl album from Warner Bros, described as a limited edition.
The heavyweight (180g) vinyl set manages to fit in 28 tracks in total. Think of it as a highlights of that original set, all packed into packaging that features the original label artwork of all of the 7-inch singles inside.
You can see the track listing below, with a release date promised for 26th May 2017. You can pre-order now, with the double vinyl listed at £21.20. Note that the artwork still isn’t showing – we will update as soon as the new artwork is available.
