As well as celebrating the events of the last 12 months through our voted for categories and career-long achievements through our glittering merit awards, The Glenfiddich MOJO Honours List is also an opportunity to reward the prime efforts of music archivists and cinematographers.
The MOJO Catalogue Release Of The Year category (presented by HMV) and the MOJO Vision Award reflect the hearty endeavours of those who thrill with both their packaging and the ability to bring our heroes to a small screen near you.
The shortlist for The MOJO Catalogue Release Of The Year is initially assembled from entries submitted by the labels themselves. These entries are then assessed by an industry panel consisting of members of MOJO and HMV staff to arrive at a final list. Such was the quality on offer this year that there are a hefty 10 nominees this year. And here they are:
THE MOJO CATALOGUE RELEASE OF THE YEAR (presented by HMV)
1. Orange Juice - Coals To Newcastle (Domino)
2. Derek And The Dominoes - Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs (Polydor)
3. Dinah Washington - The Fabulous Miss D (Universal)
4. Primal Scream - Screamadelica (Sony Music)
5. The Fall - This Nation's Saving Grace/The Wonderful And Frightening World Of... The Omnibus Editions (Beggars Banquet)
6. David Bowie - Station To Station (EMI)
7. The Who - Live At Leeds (Polydor)
8. Syl Johnson - Complete Mythology (Numero Group)
9. Percy Sledge - The Atlantic Recordings (Warners/Atlantic)
10.The Kinks - Kinda Kinks/Kinks/The Kinks Kontroversy Deluxe Edition Series (Sanctuary/Universal)
The range and diversity of the above nominees is represented in the gargantuan weight of David Bowie's Station To Station Super Deluxe box set (nine discs and more memorabilia than you could possibly remember from the first time around!) through to the sheer affordable elegance of The Fall's Omnibus Editions.
The MOJO Vision category also includes a wide range of artists, ranging from Motörhead's mainman through to the resurrected Specials and on to lost soul grooves and beyond. Judging in this category is undertaken by a further industry panel and MOJO staff.
The nominees in the Vision category read as follows:
THE MOJO VISION AWARD
1. Lemmy: The Movie (Entertainment One)
2. The Specials - 30th Anniversary Tour (Blink TV)
3. Staff Benda Bilili - Benda Bilili (Trinity Films)
4. Wheedle's Groove: Seattle's Forgotten Soul Of The '60s and '70s (Cinewax)
5. Upside Down - The Creation Records Story (Revolver Entertainment)
The winner of both of these categories will be announced at The Glenfiddich MOJO Honours List which takes place in London on July 21.
