Maze feat. Frankie Beverly, The M+M Mixes [[iTunes / Amazon / Spotify) / Joy and Pain: The Lifelines Remixes [[iTunes / Amazon / Spotify) [[Capitol/UMe)
Obviously, Mardi Gras looks a little different in the COVID-19 era, but this was a great week to celebrate Maze featuring Frankie Beverly’s stellar Live in New Orleans album, reissued on vinyl for its 40th anniversary. As an added digital bonus, these EPs collect some rare and unheard mixes of Maze studio cuts by well-known mixer John Morales, plus a cadre of remixes of 1980’s “Joy and Pain” assembled by The Bomb Squad for a 1989 greatest hits album.
