BOB DYLAN’s BLONDE ON BLONDE album is a landmark in music: the ultimate combination of rock’n’roll thrills and lyrical mysteries. 50 years since its inception, MOJO devotes 19 pages to its wonders, with all-new interviews with the men who made it, plus an in-depth look at Dylan’s brand new album, Fallen Angels. Meanwhile, our free CD is a specially commissioned tribute to Blonde On Blonde, with covers by contemporary stars including Phosphorescent, Ryley Walker and more. A LIMITED EDITION package, with the album on double ‘blonde’ vinyl and a Dylan art print, is also available. Drill down for a 10-page celebration of the music of PRINCE; the wild and tragic tale of The Associates; Sean Lennon in his own right; 122 Reviews – including Radiohead, Laura Mvula, Paul Simon and The Beach Boys; and finally… Fat White Family meet Lady Gaga!
The latest MOJO magazine sheds new light on SYD BARRETT, the fragile songwriting genius who set Pink Floyd on their stellar path before stumbling into the wilderness. MOJO writers explore all his songs while his sister Rosemary remembers the man behind the myth. This month, the magazine resides a natty card wallet with TWO FABULOUS PINK FLOYD ART PRINTS and our customary COVERMOUNT CD, continuing the psych theme with 14 mind-expanding tracks from ace contemporary artists including Goat, Cate Le Bon, Black Mountain and Thee Oh Sees. Also in the issue: Santana’s classic line-up kiss and make up; The Jam’s history in pictures (captioned by Paul Weller!); sax legend Sonny Rollins; unseen Smiths; Merle Haggard; Father John Misty; Keith Emerson; Corinne Bailey Rae; Manic Street Preachers; Michael Kiwanuka; Lucinda Williams; Cheap Trick; Ray Lamontagne; The Artist Formerly Known As Antony; The Verve and loads more. It’s Flaming brilliant!
