This isn't any ordinary release. We're talking about the inclusion of all the tracks from the mid-'80s Unicorn pressing, sourced from the original masters, and two unreleased tracks plus a rehearsal tape straight from Alick's personal collection. To top it off, the record comes with a 4-page booklet packed with rare photographs and personal sleeve notes by members Chris, Alick, and Derwent.
True to its original spirit, the initial pressing features a special black and yellow quad color, making it a must-have for collectors.
LES ELITE was at the vanguard of London’s Mod scene, garnering a loyal fanbase and a parade of scooters at every gig. They captured the zeitgeist of what was happening in London and across the UK, embodying the Mod movement's essence but, until this moment, never had their music released.
The band's name alone stirred conversations, with rumors that Paul Weller once declared "Les Elite" as the ultimate Mod band name. Whether fact or legend, this band's influence was indisputable.
By 1981, the members of LES ELITE went their separate ways, with futures as varied as working in the family coach business to becoming session musicians, while others continued to influence the Mod scene in new formations.
"Running With You" is more than just an album; it’s a piece of history finally given its due. Grab your piece of Mod legacy today and experience the beats and soul of a movement that never really left.
