Hello my friends, I’ve always been obsessed by this fabulous duo. There are some albums that are ultra rare and some that can’t even be found on the internet anymore. In any case, this is my first upload and I hope you like it. Here is a very nice album by Boards of Canada, one of my hardest finds. I can identify a Boards of Canada fake mix. This is the real one.

Limited to fifty copies, pressed on both cassette and cd formats, the tracks on BoC Maxima range from previously released material to songs which to this day have yet to see wide re-release. Many of the tracks featured on this disc would later be chosen for the track listing of Music Has The Right To Children, though with some differences (notably on One Very Important Thought.)
This release was broadcasted in full on France’s Helter Skelter’s radio programme in 2002.
Wildlife Analysis, Boc Maxima, Roygbiv, Turquoise Hexagon Sun and One Very Important Thought later appeared on Music Has the Right to Children. Everything You Do Is a Balloon, June 9th, Nlogax and Turquoise Hexagon Sun also appear on Hi Scores‘. Rodox Video, Nova ScotiaRobots, Skimming Stones, Carcan, M9 and Original Nlogax appeared on A Few Old Tunes (albeit in slightly different forms). A longer version of Chinook appears on the Aquarius single.
At 5:17, the version of Sixtyniner that appears is shorter than the version on the original Twoism release. However, when Twoism was publicly released in 2002, this 5:17 version was used instead.
As of 2011, Niagara, Red Moss, Concourse and Whitewater are exclusive to this release.
