$800 is crazy when you realize for just a few hundred more you could press it yourself and have a hundred copies

The other day I had the honor of listening to this piece of crap. Horrible sound, impossible to enjoy even for the big BOC fan (I'm one). Don't pay a single cent for this. By the way: what a terrible artwork! Really, this release is a joke!!!

I quite like the artwork, did it really sound that bad? Next time I find myself unemployed I'm going to pay to get some copies of ''A Few Old Tunes'' pressed to vinyl, put the original cover through a filter and then number them out of 20 and then just whack them on here and see how it goes. #BANKOFBOARDS

Why is this delireable item when these tracks are all over the place on first album? I could take these two tracks and market them as an insult, but it would take me no where and WHY? Because is already released and nothing can stop that. Not from fans or flipper - whatever you will call them… sometimes a space is just a space remember!

By the way the music (which we are suppose to talk about) remind me of care free times walking on the depleted train track.

It’s a bootleg for sure, when it’s spinning on my table you can hear that it sounds like a poorly mastered bootleg, though it’s the FIRST BOC Maxima vinyl release I’ve seen if I can say the least... I’ve dreamed of listening to the actual cassette realease of this mix, but from what I heard off this specific record it seems legitimate enough to think it come from an original tape rip... idk, it’s hard to say. Defiantly can say the BoC brothers would never re-release any of their earliest work, so this is 100% a fan made tribute to the cassette mix.

There's a pretty good quality flac tape rip floating around. Wouldn't be surprised if it were the source audio for this. You can grab it from rareboc.ax.lt

Can someone vouch for the authenticity of this thing? There's no information online about it, it seems to have appeared out of nowhere, no record label release and no original site selling it when it was first released, I'd be willing to pay top dollar for a copy but I'm not about to spend several hundred pounds on an unconfirmed and potentially unlicensed product. Any additional info would be appreciated.

I'm 90% sure it's a bootleg of some sort, it's not even on the Music70 label, judging from other reviwes it doesn't seem to be mastered well at all, like someone just plonked the files down on a vinyl. It sounds awful and if you really want a physical copy of BOC Maxima press it yourself, it's much cheaper.

Hands down Boards of Canada's best release. This was the 7th of their seven self released albums before getting signed. In fact they got famous because of the success of this album on mp3 sites from 1996-1998. About 30% of the songs were repeated (but new recordings) on their next album, the Warp Records release Music Has the Right to Children. 4 of the songs were re-released on the Hi Scores ep. One track (Chinook) was used as a b-side to the Aquarius single. Also the song Sixtyniner (best song on this album) is a repeat/improved version of a song from their 6th album (Twoism).

Had they already been famous when they released this I'm sure the 3 singles would be "Everything You Do Is A Balloon", "Sixtyniner", and "Turquoise Hexagon Sun" (pretty sure there is a rare hexagon shaped single of that last one, although it's a single off of Music Has The Right To Children). But this definitely isn't a "skip to the 3 singles then listen to something else" album, this is a "listen to the whole album from start to finish" affair. I'd go so far as to say every song except the outro could've worked as a single. In particular "June 9th", "Red Moss", "ROYGBIV", "Skimming Stones", and "M9" stand out. M9 has a more hypnotic feel, like an old Tangerine Dream song. The cheerful sounding ROYGBIV in comparison almost sounds like BOC's idea of Hip Hop backing music (which is still a fair distance from real Hip Hop of course). June 9th is a great "steadily building" song, where they seem determined to add or subtract elements every 8 bars (or is it 16). I love when electronic songs have that sense of forward motion, like they're determined not to get stuck in one place too long.

On the one hand I'd highly recommend getting this album, on the other hand you're kidding yourself if you think you'll ever find a genuine physical edition.

Any digital version you have is going to be just as good. I wouldn't spend that much money to have the files I have pressed onto plastic. Unless this was secretly sanctioned by BOC and the recordings were of higher quality than the CDr.
