Max Webster - Self-titled - CD
Canadian Rock during the 1970s was at its zenith, producing numerous bands and artists with talent to burn.
Of all the artists vying for attention in the land of the maple leaf it was Max Webster who, for a brief moment in time, attracted attention as the act to watch for bigger and better things.
Certinly they were no ordinary band.
The fact that the name Max Webster was an entirely fictional non de plume was just part of the conundrum. An electric and eccentric four piece, based in Toronto, and led by the ever entertaining Kim Mitchell, Max Webster maximized their curious non-conventional appeal by crafting melodic progressive rock with a nod to the left-of-centre approach pioneered by King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart and Genesis. It was a heady mixture for sure, but one that paid long lasting dividends. Fully remastered with a 16 page full colour booklet containing a 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, and rare photos, with full involvement from Kim Mitchell..
