Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Daniel Johnston (vocals).
  • This 20-song set collects songs originally self-released as cassettes on Johnston's own Stress label. Johnston's songs are honest and direct, delivered in a style that is all his own. He finds inspiration in both his love of music and his lifelong struggles with mental illness. Johnston's songs have been covered by a number of other artists, including Yo La Tengo and Kathy McCarty (the latter devoted an entire album to his material, DEAD DOG'S EYEBALL).
  • YIP/JUMP MUSIC is primitively recorded, as Johnston provides musical accompaniment with cheap keyboards. However, his sense of pop dynamics, hooks, and song structure help bring about song after memorable song. Tracks like "Sorry Entertainer," "Speeding Motorcycle," and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Grievances" are full of hope, optimism, and unquenchable love.

Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real reason Johnston shines is the fact that he also writes fantastic songs..."

Uncut (magazine) - "[The album] contains several of what we may term his greatest hits. Most notably, there is 'Speeding Motorcycle': a strange song, akin to the Modern Lovers performing on children's instruments..."

Daniel Johnston is one of those musicians that have been described as a genuis and a thoroughly influencial artist, however its really hard to see why when listening to alot of his albums. This is one of his earlier albums and has a hard edge to it because of the low fi recording technique daniel was about. It has some good songs on here like casper the friendly ghost, king kong, chord organ blues and other, but overall its not the best sounding album he put out. worth a listen but that's about it, its a record for the true daniel johnston fans.
