Love, Calvin was Scott Johnson, a hometaper from South Dakota whose Mr. Joy cassette arrived in GAJOOB's po box in 1990 and was a permanent fixture in my car forever after. Scott was lost to us in 2008 but you can find his music restored on a website curated by good friend Russ Stedman.

Love, Calvin's Mr. Joy is alive with ideas. A restless creativity permeates this tape, while the songs reamain consistently well-crafted with hard-edged excitement. Love, Calvin is Scott Johnson. His twisted sense of observation shines through with both humor and pain. And even the pain and angst is often funny. It's been seventeen years since I first reviewed this tape and the time has done nothing to dim my love of this album. --Reviewed by Bryan Baker .
