a mojo anthology

HOW TO ENCOMPASS 50 YEARS OF KING CRIMSON’S genuinely progressive rock music in the space of one CD? Robert Fripp, the sole constant member of the band and their “raison d’être”, has a singular take on the group’s inception – that their 1969 debut, In The Court Of The Crimson King, “reached back and pulled those young players towards it in order that it could be made.”The idea behind this MOJO Anthology: Rare, Classic, Unusual And Live 1969-2019, is to pull a new audience towards the highly individual riches of King Crimson – and to reward both hardcore fans as well as adventurous neophytes.

Abdullah Ibrahim CAPE JAZZ MAESTRO What music are you currently grooving to?I really enjoy the music of the natural world. I live in the countryside, so for me it’s the sound of springtime in the mountains; the birds singing to each other, the gentle flow of the river.

It was a big influence on my new album.What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album?Duke Ellington once said to me something like, “My favourite album is the next one.” I’m inclined to agree.What was the first record you ever bought?

IT IS EASY TO GET SEDUCED BY NUMBERS when thinking about Queen. At time of writing, worldwide box office receipts for 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody are fast approaching one billion dollars – a meganumber to file alongside all the others that have defined their story: the biggest-selling album in UK history ( Greatest Hits , 6.3 million); the most streamed song from the 20th century (Bohemian Rhapsody, of course, 1.6 billion streams); and so on.There is much more to Queen, though, than mere scale, and this month’s MOJO cover story explores the serious musical riches upon which their triumphs were built. With the significant help of Brian May and Roger Taylor, Mark Blake learns the real stories behind the fabled hits, and investigates some of the less-celebrated classics hiding in…

Pink Floyd’s co-founder Roger Waters turned up to sing the 1968 album track Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun. Floyd drummer Mason’s redux tribute to the group’s early works has been playing to sold-out houses across the world since summer 2018, but this was the first time one of his ex-bandmates had stopped by.
