Maximum Joy is a greatest hits album by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, released on 25 October 2000 (2000-10-25) by ZTT Records.

Background[edit]

The album takes its name from a song title from the band's Liverpool album.

The track listing is a mixture of singles and album tracks. The band's seven singles are accounted for here, in their album versions. Also featured are the four cover versions the band committed to album.

Rounding out the collection is a bonus CD of newly commissioned remixes by people like Rob Searle and Peter Rauhofer.

To celebrate the release of Maximum Joy, ZTT re-issued the three Welcome To The Pleasuredome-era singles complete with more of the 2000 remixes.

Repertoire Records from Germany collected two discs worth of these mixes and issued them as The Club Mixes 2000.

Design and art direction were by Simon Griffin & Ed Sullivan at Dolphin Studio.
