In 1983, Martha and the Muffins principals Martha Johnson and Mark Gane returned to the studio for a third time with Daniel Lanois to start recording what would become the ‘Mystery Walk’ album. Originally released in 1984 under the abbreviation ‘M+M’, the first single, ‘Black Stations/White Stations’, with its Brecker Bros. fueled horn riff, became a #2 dance hit in the U.S., attracting a lot of attention for openly challenging mainstream radio stations to break down the playlist formats that divided “black stations” from “white stations”. With other notable tracks like ‘Cooling The Medium’, ‘Come Out And Dance’, ‘Garden In The Sky’ and ‘Nation Of Followers’, the writers of ‘Echo Beach’, ‘Danseparc’ and ‘This Is The Ice Age’ made yet another stylistic change while at the same time attracting a wider audience.
Now, three decades after its initial release, ‘Mystery Walk’ is available on CD, remastered by Peter J. Moore, complete with a 20 page booklet of album notes, lyrics, photos, band and press quotes as well as five bonus tracks from the same recording sessions.
You will also have access to exclusive updates related to the release: photos, additional tracks and more!
