Rare Mod Books

Acid Jazz have turned their hand to book publishing with a series of Rare Mod books. Three are currently available from HMV and good book stores.
Circles - The Strange Story Of The Fleur De Lys. Authors Paul Anderson and Damian Jones have interviewed every surviving member and tell a fascinating story of sublime talent, missed chances and mismanaged business opportunities. Names like Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Aretha Franklin and The Who weave in and out of the story and the result is a must for 60s fans, soulboy and mods as well as anyone with an interest in youth culture.
Rock On Wood - The Origin Of A Rock & Roll Face. Written by acclaimed music writer Terry Rawlings, Rock On Wood is the story of a musician who has worked his way through some of the best-known bands of the 1960s and 1970s.Starting with his childhood and chronicling his career with now legendary groups like The Birds, The Creation, The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, The Jeff Beck Group, and, of course, The Rolling Stones, the book explores the life of one of Rock’n’Roll’s hardest grafters. 

The Small Faces - The Young Mod's Forgotten Story.The re-release of the super-rare 1994 publishing debut, written by renowned music author and journalist Paolo Hewitt. The Small Faces’ legacy is far-reaching, musically as well as stylistically, yet onlyrecently are they generally being recognized as one of the influential bands of the 60s.
