24/08/10 - The Amorphous Androgynous cover The Beatles

Well it's about the only thing they haven't done. I'll leave it for the ever-reliable Dell1972 to explain while I attempt to get a few hours sleep between two several hundred mile train journeys...

Brian and Gaz have been keeping quiet for a reason...

MOJO has announced that the first 10,000 copies of its next issue, which is due to go on sale on 31 Aug, will come with a free twelve-inch vinyl compilation entitled 'Let It Be Revisited'. The artists featured on the freebie, including Pete Molinari, Phosphorescent, The Jim Jones Revue, Beth Orton, Amorphous Androgynous, Besnard Lakes and Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, have recorded their own versions of tracks from The Beatles' 1970 (and final) album, 'Let It Be'.

MOJO Editor In Chief Phil Alexander said of the special edition: "The MOJO Vinyl Edition is our way of celebrating the rebirth of vinyl which we've seen in recent years. Essentially, we created an incarnation of the magazine that we wanted to buy ourselves so it was something of a labour of love. In terms of the album itself, we hand-picked the acts and they all paid tribute to the enduring power of The Beatles by providing new perspectives on a set of classic tunes".

Here's the tracklist for the compilation:

John Grant - Two Of Us
Dennis Locorriere - Dig A Pony
Phosphorescent - Across The Universe
Beth Orton - I Me Mine/Dig It
The Amorphous Androgynous - Let It Be (Part 1)
The Amorphous Androgynous - Let It Be (Part 2) incorporating Across The Universe (Reprised)
CW Stoneking - Maggie Mae
Besnard Lakes - I've Got A Feeling
Wilko Johnson - One After 909
Judy Collins - The Long And Winding Road
Pete Molinari - For You Blue
The Jim Jones Revue - Get Back

Do you have any pointers as to where I could go to hear/purchase these two AA tracks? Only became aware of this around, what, 7 months after the MOJO issue came out, so.. Any ideas? :)
