Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Substantially expanded, updated, and redesigned for the first time since it was initially published in 1999, the ultimate music companion just got bigger and better. When Columbia released The Voice of Frank Sinatra in 1949, the album format was born. Using this as a starting point, The MOJO Collection charts the evolution of the L.P. over seven decades, through reviews of much-loved classics and little-known masterpieces, right up to Coldplay's acclaimed A Rush of Blood to the Head, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP, and Norah Jones's Come Away With Me. Substantially revised, redesigned, and expanded for the first time, The MOJO Collection now contains over seven hundred specially commissioned reviews by forty of the world's top music journalists. With the benefit of hindsight, and through interviews with many of the people involved in recording, these reviews offer fascinating, surprising, and authoritative new perspectives into the genesis and importance of each album. Every entry comes with recording and production details and much more. The page layout and indexing systems have been thoroughly redesigned. Readers can take advantage of this new user-friendliness, following clear signposts to similar albums, contemporary works, and artists' influences. As a new feature, Top Five albums from various artists, along with billboard statistics from down the years are interspersed throughout, providing juicy trivia. Articles on areas of music that didn't revolve around the L.P. format, such as easy listening and reggae, plus a listing of essential sound tracks and the hundred greatest compilation albums of all time add even more for every music lover. Not just for the hard-core music fanbut for all who enjoy music, The MOJO Collection is an astonishingly accessible, well-written, and unique approach to the genre, giving new perspectives on old favorites and introducing you to some of the music you may have missed along the way.
