George Harrison/Beatles – “Mo’s Songs” 6CD Set With Shipping Box, Unplayed
An unplayed factory sealed copy of the first printing of Mo’s Songs, the 1994 6-CD promotional only tribute to former Warner Bros. Records chairman Mo Ostin, featuring George Harrison’s otherwise unreleased song written in honor of his close friend Ostin, titled “Mo.” This is a 5 minute, fully produced track that Harrison cut and gave to Ostin, and was later used on this tribute exclusively.
The elaborate package contains a bound in booklet written by ex- Warner Bros. exec Stan Cornyn, and six CD’s of Warner Bros and Reprise tracks by artists the legendary Ostin worked with.
Ostin famously signed Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Prince, and many more and this package includes tracks by them and the Grateful Dead, Randy Newman, Ry Cooder, Rod Stewart, John Lennon, The Travelling Wilburys, REM, Madonna, Neil Young, Tiny Tim and many many more.
This package was co-produced by Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold. Fewer than 1000 of these were made, for distribution to Warner Bros. employees and friends, and fewer still had the cardboard mailer and insert, which this copy includes. The photo here shows an open copy of the bound CD set, but the copy offered here is factory sealed.
This package was later (and more cheaply) reissued in 2006 when Ostin received the Grammy Award’s Salute to Icons Award, but that more spartan second issue had the CD’s inserted into a thin board slipcase, without the book binding and booklet that this original has.
A fantastic tribute to Mo, Warner Bros., and the great acts they brought to market–not to mention a fantastic unreleased George Harrison track !
