The Party (Box Set)
Ole Label Group/Anthem Records
Formed in 1973, Max Webster became one of Canada’s biggest selling and most prolific live bands, led by frontman Kim Mitchell. Included in this eight-vinyl disc box set are newly remastered albums from the Max Webster catalogue, along with newly remixed superb bootleg tracks from Terry Brown and Greg Wells, and a later unreleased EP by Kim Mitchell. Over the years the Max Webster lineup featured Kim Mitchell, Terry Wilkinson, Dave Myles, Gary McCracken, Paul Kersey, Mike Tilka, Jim Chevalier and lyricist Pye Dubois.
This is the album to put under the Christmas tree for any Max Webster fans still out there, as the newly remastered vinyl contains all the Max Webster hits, like “Let Go The Line” and “Paradise Skies” The box set also includes a 32-page foreword by John Derringer of Q107, a poster, and a Universal Juvenile Fan Club ID card. One listen to this and you’re back at the Gasworks on Yonge Street in Toronto in 1975. The band dissolved in 1981 after a show opening for Rush in Memphis, TN. Kim Mitchell then went on to great solo success, including hits such as “Go For Soda” and “Patio Lanterns.”
