MOJO, is Mojo Stu's earlier incarnation as a Rock-Blues artist, and this CD 'Not For Nothin' was released in '93 to industry critical acclaim and national college station radioplay. The CD's ten tracks feature memorable melodies and lyrics, phenomenal guitar and slide guitar work, and guest appearances from top Philly acts.(Notably, Tom Kiefer of Cinderella backs up vocals on two tracks.)
This is a rocking good CD, with serious Blues overtones, songs about the ins and outs of love, the ups and downs, too.
Recorded at KAJEM Studios, which was sold to Boys To Men the year following the sessions for 'Not For Nothin', for a now defunct label. It's taken 10 years for Mojo Stu to regain ownership of the master to this amazing collection of songs and music, and is now being re-released (internet only) on Mojo Stu's label Mudbone Records and exclusively available here at CD Baby!
A variety of really cool guitars were used in the production, a gaggle of very vintage Les Pauls including a '58 Burst, '59 Gold Top, and an awesome ALL GOLD '56 with P90 pickups (featured on the slide lead on track #2 Camel Toe Boogie). Also featured is Mojo Stu's not so secret weapon...a '67 Goya Rangemaster, which has push button controls and the stupidest headstock ever created, but is an awesome slide guitar (featured on track^ Drive Me Crazy).
We only used one amp, an early Marshall JMP 50 watt and a vintage slant cab, and a few stomp boxes...the best of which is an early Morley FuzzWah that is scary good (featured on the lead in track #7 Not For Nothin)
Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed makin' it!
