MOJO PRESENTS x 3: The Greatest Single Of All Time (1997), OK Computer (2008), Destroy! (2008)

Three more freebies from the UK’s MOJO Magazine. The Greatest Single Of All Time is another of the earliest MOJO CD giveaways, from August, 1997. It’s a tiny tribute to “Good Vibrations” and includes a couple of extras along with two Brian Wilson interviews. OK Computer is a broad collection of pop-oriented electronic music from the last four decades. Honestly, I’ve never listened to it because all this time I thought it was a Radiohead tribute. Destroy is dedicated to punk, circa 1977. Not a bad collection, thanks to the offbeat selections and above average snottiness. Nearly 100 more MOJOs are waiting for you in the archives. More next Sunday.
