Product Details
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.

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..."
