First we had Steve Marriott & The Moments from his pre-Small Faces days, next an unreleased collection from soul goddess Sharon Tandy and The Fleur de Lys, but for this, the third extended-play in the series, compilers Paul Anderson and Damian Jones have truly excelled themselves.
The Muleskinners were a R&B outfit from west London, overlooked but for one small fact. The Muleskinners featured a very young Ian McLagan. Mac played guitar and keyboards in the band and this is an unreleased demo session culled from acetate. Never before released but expressing the true rhythm & blues of the original mod era.
McLagan of course passed into the mod pantheon because of his role in the legendary Small Faces. Later with The Faces he became a true rock superstar. This is his first steps on the ladder.
A true slice of musical history from a young west London mod band – and heard here for the first time ever.
