MOJO Songs The Beatles Taught UsSongs The Beatles Taught Us (2015)

The latest free CD from the November, 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a collection of oldies that many of us first heard by The Beatles. Not a particularly unique MOJO freebie, but good to have if this stuff isn’t already in your collection. A reminder also of a time when a memorable song only needed about two minutes of your time. MOJO has issued a number of Beatles-related comps, so just click a cover below to visit our original posts. For all 163 of MOJO‘s freebie CDs, dating back to 1997, HERE.

MOJO PRESENTS… Life Companion – 15 Tracks That Shaped Keith Richards (2015)

MOJO Life CompanionLife Companion – 15 Tracks That Shaped Keith Richards (September, 2015)

The latest free CD from the September, 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a tribute to The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, who has a new solo album out. Instead of going for a straight blues comp, which might be expected when one 20/20s Keith Richards career in hindsight, this comp seems more reflective of what was actually on his record player back in the day…. back when he was subliminally laying the groundwork for what would become the longest-standing rock ‘n’ roll band ever. Includes music from Scotty Moore (Elvis’ guitar man), Jimmy Reed, Buddy Holly, The Coasters, The Everly Brothers, Muddy Waters and more. As you should already know… you can head to the archives to find all 161 of MOJO‘s freebie CDs, dating back to 1997, HERE.

MOJO PRESENTS… My Generation (2015)

MOJO My GenerationMy Generation (August, 2015)

The latest free CD from the August, 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a celebration of the Mod roots of The Who, this month’s cover boys, who are currently in the midst of their final tour. And… unlike 1982’s “farewell” tour, over 30 years ago, it’s probably true this time. Subtitled “15 Tracks Of ’60s Beat-Filled Teenage Mod Angst,” My Generation is a fun (and still) fresh blast of rockin’ British energy, boasting material not typically found on other MOJO comps. Speaking of which… head to the archives to find all 160 of MOJO‘s freebie CDs, dating back to 1997, HERE.

MOJO PRESENTS… The Roots Of Fleetwood Mac (2015)

RootsOfFleetwoodMacThe Roots Of Fleetwood Mac (July, 2015)

The latest free CD from the July, 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a top-notch blues and R&B collection that could have easily been used for dozens of 60s Brit bands, but it’s a smartly sequenced collection just the same. A lot of unfamiliar stuff for me, which is a treat, while most of the artists I’ve already got are buried in box sets, nearly as forgotten. The Fabian inclusion is inspired, and how it’s possible to ever hear The Kingston Trio the same way after that Christopher Guest movie, I’ll not understand. There are too many individual highlights to pick one (if DivShare was working you’d see half of it streaming), so you get Otis Rush’s amazing “So Many Roads.” Another in a recent string of strong MOJO‘s.

The latest free CD from the June 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a collection of “15 mind-blowing cosmic tracks approved by Paul Weller.” Exactly what Jam/Style Council frontman Weller’s connection is to the sometimes spacey explorations exemplified by the likes of Sun Ra, Neu! and Charles Mingus… is something I’m not aware of, but so what?

MOJO Presents… Physical Graffiti Redrawn (2015)

Physical Graffiti RedrawnPhysical Graffiti Redrawn (April, 2015)

The latest free CD from the April 2015 issue of MOJO Magazine is a reboot of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti, featuring a slew of lesser known artists tackling the 1975 2LP behemoth. Almost all the interpretations are somewhat faithful to Zep’s arrangements, but some personality does manage to float to the surface. Son Little’s “Trampled Underfoot” is pretty good, sounding more ‘natural’ than the original, while Max Jury’s pleasing reading of “Down By The Seaside” is a winner, too. Sun Kil Moon is always worth your time, but “Kashmir,” despite its conceptual ingenuity, falls flat. Hit the archives to find all 156 of MOJO‘s freebie CDs, dating back to 1997, HERE.

MOJO Presents… Change The Beat (2015)

Change The BeatChange The Beat (March, 2015)

The latest free CD from MOJO Magazine is a funky, wiry, nervous stash of late 70s/early 80s, New York City post-punk beats… that still manages to sound alive and breathing over 40 years later. Forget the “Madonna” tie-in MOJO uses to connect the dots to their cover story. She was just there, and had nothing to do with the vitality of this street-level beat-meistering. 14 tracks from Bush Tetras, James Chance, Funkadelic, Curtis Mayfield, Arthur Russell, ESG and others. PROGRAMMING NOTE: “Coup,” by 23 Skidoo, sounds flawed, with a few stutters and drop-outs, but that’s the way the track was originally released back in the day.

FrontIt’s A Wonderfull Life (Nov. 2014)

The latest free CD from the November, 2014 issue of MOJO is subtitled “A Journey Into Sound, Compiled For MOJO By Siouxsie Sioux And Steven Severin,” and features a baffling array of music. It happens to be right up my alley, with lots of film & TV music, buoyed by seemingly disjointed selections ping-ponging from The Shadows to Bernard Hermann to Frank Sinatra to an exclusive track from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Though… I’m hard pressed to understand the connections or theme here, but it’s a great listen. No track is representative, so you get to hear a couple of oddities from a playlist of fun sore thumbs, below. Find all 151 of MOJO‘s freebie CDs, HERE. See the complete list, HERE.

The latest free CD from the October, 2014 issue of MOJO is a 15 track collection of “Kate Bush-inspired dream pop,” which is totally outside my field of knowledge.

The latest free CD from the July, 2014 issue of MOJO is loosely tied to the magazine’s promotion of their Led Zeppelin/Jimmy Page interview, parodying the cover of LZ-III. It’s a righteously heavy collection that’s better than it looks on paper, largely because the material isn’t typical MOJO fare. This is the mag’s third “Heavy Nuggets” collection, which means you can find the first, from December, 2007 (HERE) and Vol. 2, from June, 2013 (HERE) in the archives… along with all 147 MOJO‘s HERE.
