The Next Important Canadian Box Set Will Focus on Max Webster

There was a time in the late 70s when Max Webster was Toronto’s house band. Eventually signing to Anthem Records and adopted as Rush’s little brother band, Kim Mitchell and the group eventually broke out of Ontario and enjoyed a nice run as a national act, both on radio and in concert.

Come September 29, Max Webster will get the box set treatment with The Party, featuring newly remastered albums, a ton of unreleased studio and live songs, the long-out-of print and highly collectable Kim Mitchell self-titled EP and a 32-page booklet packed with rare photos and memorabilia.

Specifically, the collection features Max Webster, High Class in Borrowed Shoes, Mutiny Up My Sleeve, A Million Vacations, Live Magnetic Air and Universal Juveniles plus that Kim Mitchell solo EP. The live tracks are taken from The Bootleg, which has been remixed by Terry Brown and Greg Wells.
