Max Webster vinyl LP album record High Class In Borrowed Shoes Canadian. Max Webster LP High Class In Borrowed Shoes 1977 Prog VG+/M-. The opening tune and title track, High Class In Borrowed Shoes flaunts everything that was great about their very bluesy self titled debut while adding a spice of near metal which makes for a mind blowing start to the fray. America's Veins is the other pure rocker on the album, and while this one may not be as ''high brow'' as some of the other tunes (if that could ever have been said about Webster) it still makes for a killer tune - and is especially excellent on their sole live album Magnetic Air. Slower, more balladic songs on the album are brief, but effective.

Max Webster's second album High Class In Borrowed Shoes, originally released in 1977, is regarded as their pinnacle accomplishment. It is a record of unique appeal, bringing together both the sublime and the outrageous in one bubbling cauldron. Leader Kim Mitchell's laconic vocals, biting lead guitar work and crushing riffs make for some of the most compelling and enjoyable music to have ever been birthed by a North American rock group, including the work of fellow Canadian uber progmen Rush . no freakin' contest boys and girls!

In comparison, High Class In Borrowed Shoes, although no heavier, evokes a sheen of polished aluminum, with its bright, uncompromising headphone-ready drum sound, its everlite, dewdropped piano work, and its painstakingly perfect execution. But High Class sails the same passionate seas of wanton adventure, offering arguably four metal or hard rock works, most panoramic, scorching and insistent being America's Veins and the swooping and snatching title track, the song improbably combining boogie and pomp until circumstance breeds good fortune. And as was the case with the debut, all points of the compass lead to the heart no matter what the action level, the album scrubbed clean then chiming by way of elegant Terry Watkinson keyboard work, and absolutely top-of-the-line pride in craftsmanship on the part of the whole circus.
