MOJO Presents X 3: Raw Soul (2004), The Roots Of Led Zeppelin (2004) & Studio One Selector (2005)

Three more freebies from MOJO. Raw Soul is another of the early ‘Music Guides’ MOJO released when first beginning to issue themed collections. A beloved comp for its quality of material. You’d think The Roots Of Led Zeppelin would be yet another blues roots compilation the magazine is so fond of. Part of it is, naturally, but just to mess with the Zepheads MOJO has also included some hardcore folk (Joan Baez, John Fahey) and even a Spirit track – but not the one that Page lifted the “Stairway” riff from. Studio One Selector is an excellent collection of tracks from the famed roots reggae label. All can be found at Amazon (click the covers). There’s about 90 more MOJOs in our archives. Three more next Sunday.

    Just to clarify something: in another review it is stated "at one point, it makes the erroneous claim that Rastafarianism was started by Marcus Garvey, which is not true". Well, it is true (sort of), although Marcus himself wasn’t a rastifarian – a statement (prophesy) he made during a speech, that a "king (of kings) will rise out of Afrika, from the line of David" was what initially sparked the Rastifarian belief, which officially started when Haile Seliassie (a name that came with the crowning – his birth name was Ras Tafari, get it?), 225th in line from the house of David, was crowned as Emperor of Ethiopia. When Burning Spear sings "Macus Garvey words come to pass…" he is reffering to the prophesy…

    Thanks for everything. LZ & S1S works fine. Raw Soul’s zip file does not open. I get “The compressed (zipped) folder is invalid or corrupted.” Can you re-up a new one. Thank you.

      Thanks. I just d/l’ed and opened Raw Soul without incident (with Safari, no less, which used to be impossible). You may have gotten a bad d/l. Give it another try and if it still doesn’t work I’ll get another one up. Thanks.
