MOJO Presents x 3

Three more thematic freebie samplers from the UK’s MOJO Magazine. In My Room is an excellent gathering of fan-types paying tribute to Brian Wilson. Love Will Tear You Apart, I’m ashamed to say, I never got around to listening to. Note that the covers for the 2007 discs are “Special Subscriber Editions,” which is a fancy way of saying they were shipped (to me, anyway) in 2-sided cardboard covers instead of jewel cases. Art for all is included. Island Folk is a celebration of Island Records, featuring a slew of greats from the label. Note that the artwork states May, 2009, but should actually read June, 2009. For completists, the links lead to cheap hard copies at Amazon. Check the archives for dozens more free MOJO discs. More next Sunday.

    Thanks – any Island compilation from the late 60s – early 70s is well worth a listen, even if you already have all the songs.

    Broken link to “Love Will Tear You Apart”, if you could fix it I would be most appreciative.
