The Vault: The Highs And Lows Of Maximum Joy

Dec 18th, 2006 // 1 Comment

mj.jpgWe wanted to include Unlimited (1979-1983), the collection of rarities by the skronky Pop Group offshoot Maximum Joy, in our Jackin’ Pop reissues ballot, but alas–it was put out by the folks at Crippled Dick Hot Wax late last year. A pity, because when we pulled it out of our stacks for our year-end review, it made us move and shake all over again–especially the unbridled ebuillence of “Stretch” and the minimal cool of “Silent Street.”

    I recommended this very album to another Idolator commenter the other day as we were clearing out the remains of Seattle’s U-District Tower. And he rightly purchased it at $5.
