Castle's The Immediate Singles Collection is a mod jukebox peppered with enough psych rock, folk-rock, soft rock, and blues-rock to engage even the most jaded fan of classic rock radio. A sort of "best-of" taken from Sony's 1991 series of the same name, it's heavy on the Small Faces, the Nice, and Rod Stewart, but the song choices are good. Other highlights include pre-Nicks and Buckingham-era Fleetwood Mac ("Man of the World"), "Out of Time by Chris Farlowe, and a couple of choice cuts from soul goddess P.P. Arnold ("The First Cut Is the Deepest" and "Angel of the Morning").
