MOJO PRESENTS: The Modern Genius Of Ray Davies (2006), Maximum ’65 (2000) & The Black Keys – The Live EP (2007)

Three more freebies from MOJO. The Modern Genius Of Ray Davies is an excellent dirgey/garagey tribute to The Kinks’ frontman. Three tracks were recorded exclusively for this comp (*), while a few others come from other commercial Davies/Kinks tribs (This Is Where I Belong – The Songs Of Ray Davies And The Kinks & Give The People What We Want – Songs Of The Kinks). Maximum ’65 is a celebration of all things 1965. And, regardless of some of these tunes’ actual release dates, this is a stellar collection of winning Brit/pop that contributed to one fine, vintage year for pop music. One of MOJO’s earliest (and best) comps. The Black Keys – The Live EP might be more of a promotional union than anything else, but it produced this nifty live disc that, unless I’m mistaken, was later commercially released (or something). Check the archives for about 80 more MOJOs. Three more next Sunday.
