A Conversation with Mike Tilka of Max Webster

A few weeks back, Sarah had the opportunity to chat with Max Webster’s own Mike Tilka about their release of the definitive 8-disc vinyl and CD box sets,  The Party (ole Label Group / Anthem Legacy / Universal Music Canada). The compilation features newly re-mastered albums, exclusive unreleased studio and live songs, the long-out-of print Kim Mitchell self-titled EP and a comprehensive booklet packed with rare photos and memorabilia.

Formed in 1973, Max Webster soon became one of the most original and popular rock bands in Canada. Their first three albums, Max Webster (1976)High Class in Borrowed Shoes (1977) and Mutiny Up My Sleeve (1978) achieved gold status in Canada. Max Webster were also close friends of fellow Canadian rock icons Rush. In a 1979 interview, Rush bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee, commented that he enjoyed their music and both bands frequently toured together in Canada, the USA and the U.K. during the 1970s. The band went on to be twice nominated for JUNO Awards for ‘Group of the Year’ in 1980 and 1981 respectively.

The Party is now available for pre-order via Musicvaultz.com:
