MOJO MAGAZINE’S 300th issue features an all-white cover with embossed logo, a nod to The Beatles White Album, which enjoys its own anniversary – 50 years young – and an exciting reissue in four formats (including a 7-disc motherlode) on November 9.
MOJO 300 includes an exclusive first listen to Giles Martin’s remix of the epochal 1968 double-album and delves into the bonus content: the legendary Kinfauns demos plus revelatory outtakes, and studio chatter that suggests the Beatles were far more united during the making of the album than has been previously assumed.
Paul McCartney, Giles Martin, Ken Scott and Yoko Ono help MOJO peel back the layers of the (glass) onion.
