DIONYSOS - LE GRAND JEU (CAN '71 PSYCH QC)

POUR MES AMIS DU QUEBEC
 
 
 
Montreal was still the largest and most happening city in Canada at the end of the 1960s. Toronto may have gotten all the press with its burgeoning scene in Yorkville, but a movement of a different sort was taking place up the 401 in Quebec. The Quiet Revolution was in full sway in la belle province and what better way to heed the call of maitres chez nous than to sing in Quebecois French.

Dionysos got their start in 1969 in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, on the outer fringes of Montreal, and was one of the first rock bands to sing in joual, the gruff regional dialect that in hindsight seems perfectly suited for the exigencies of rock and roll. The five - singer Paul-Andre Thibert, guitarist Eric Clement, keyboardist Andre Mathieu, bassist Jean-Pierre Legault and drummer Robert Lepage - had some success the following year with the song 'Suzie', a languid, if rather standard, take on American blues.

MACK - ROCK & BECS (CAN '73 BLUES PSYCH QC)

POUR MES AMIS DU QUEBEC :

 
 
 
Mack

" Rock & Becs"

 

Zodiaque ZOX-6021, 1973 Canada

Unique long play from this Montreal power-trio ......André Deguire (lead guitar, keyboards, percussion, vocals), Luc Giroux (bass, vocals) and Nicky Catalano (drums, percussion)

Like obscure fellow-Quebec bands Medium, Connexion, Blind Ravage and Expedition.....these guys managed to record just one killer LP before vanishing from the recording scene.

All original compositions.... power trio rock (à la Led Zeppelin meets later Blue Cheer), with some interesting prog-friendly vibes.

CHAMPIGNONS - PREMIERE CAPSULE (PSYCH PROG CAN '72 QC)

POUR MES AMIS DU QUEBEC


Bluesy prog and psych jammer using guitar, keyboard, sax and flute, housed in a trippy day-glo mushrooom cover. High-light: the 11+ minute "Le Chateau Hanté". Great twisted Halloween Music
with spooky whispers and some prog ambition. All over though, the record is more of interest as a 60s era (even if from '72) artifact than anything genuiely good. (acid archives)

MOONSTONE - SAME - HARD ROCK PROG USA 1977

 
MOONSTONE were an impressive hard-edged blend of heavy riffing guitar & keyboads containing progressive edges and complex song structures ... along the lines of similar hardrock obscurities such as early Rush, Kopperfield, Ice Cross, Steelmill and the like. Very tight, cohesive, formidable instrumentation, no one can deny that these guys can play.

UNISON - Same (Usa Heavy Psych)


UNISON (NY)
Unison 1984 olcott beach music publishing
Despite the release date this is a high-ticket album with 1970s sound, and it may in fact have been recored earlier (1976 maybe). Drywater run into Truth & Janey after a really nastyrelationship breakdown

MIRAGE - Out of Luck, Out of Money (USA Southern '7?)



MIRAGE Out of Luck, Out of Money LP (Stallion Records; DLP-7735). Rare and very obscure album from Iowa issued in a thin cardstock sleeve. Real nice local sound with a fusion of southern rock and west coast sounds. Definite grower! No year is listed, but sounds late 70's.

HOUSTON' S NATURAL GASS - Jess Lankford & C.L. Weldon (Usa Psych Funk Blues '75)

Texas rock and roll fuzz guitar mayhem recorded in the early 70s and released on this tax scam label (Crazy Cajun) in 1978. Along with Mandrake, this is one of the best and heaviest on the label.
( rockadrome)
 Very rare record from the Texas hard rock/psych band Houston's Natural Gass. Was actually recorded in '70 but wasn't released until '78 as a tax write off. Killer hard rock with fuzz and gritty vocals. Has 10 tracks. How many sealed copies are left? Not many i'm sure. Considered one of the best hard rock records out of Texas.(collector frenzy)
LISTEN THE WAH WAH ,
Post your comment , if you need the second lp ask me

RUTH COPELAND - I Am What I Am (Usa Hard Funk Psych '71)

I Am What I Am is the second album by English singer Ruth Copeland. The album was released by Invictus Records in 1971 and was produced and arranged by Ruth Copeland, though it is widely believed that the actual producer of the album was her then husband Jeffrey Bowen. As with her debut, Self Portrait, I Am What I Am contains contributions from George Clinton and the musicians from Parliament-Funkadelic, as well as local Detroit session players such as guitarist Ray Monette.
Listen the two great tracks cover : "Play with fire" and "Gimme shelter" (Rolling Stones)
TERRIFIC GUITARS, give your opinion

SURVIVOR - All Your Pretty Moves (USA HARD ROCK '79)


Not the ‘Eye of the Tiger’ bunch, but a much better than average early heavy metal group from Shreveport, Louisiana . The vocalist is a slightly less forceful Rob Halford sound-alike, and the songwriting is up to the “Sad Wings of Destiny” standard of sophisticated hard rock.
