..has a cover shot of The Who,inside is a large write up about the "Quadrophenia" album,and includes a free cd of mod favourites and numbers the band covered in their time.Alongside songs by the likes of Jimmy Reed(Big Boss Man),The Creation(How Does It Feel),Mose Allison(Young Man Blues)and Slim Harpo(Got Love If You Want It),coming in at track five is "Shakin'All Over" by Johnny Kidd and The Pirates.Here's what Mojo has to say about the track :"In fact,The Who's fourth track on LIVE AT LEEDS is an equally teen inspired tune,namely a cover of this timeless track which hit number 1 in the U.K. singles chart in August 1960.The Who appeared with The Pirates in '63 while guitarist Joe Moretti left his mark on a generation of fellow six stringers,having played with Vince Taylor the year previous on "Brand New Cadillac".Piratical guitarist Mick Green too,became a U.K. guitar icon". As is a bit unusual with these free cd's,this one is well worth a listen and features some great tracks.I'd heard of The Creation before,but never actually heard any of their music,and their song on here is terrific plus,I've got to stick my hand up,anything that includes something by Jimmy Reed is just fine by me.Recommended listening.
