Vos Voisins - s/t. 1971 Canada



Vos Voisins - s/t (aka Holocauste à Montréal). 1971 Polydor

CD reissue: 2011 ProgQuebec

Packaging details: The PQ CD features two bonus tracks, liner notes, photos. Usual great job from ProgQuebec. There are two album covers for this title. The original "wanted poster" rendition had to be pulled, due to Polydor not receiving permission from the Allo Police tabloid to use their logo. So they went with the other brick building cover. I've had both LPs in the past, and honestly I prefer the replacement cover (and that's what I currently own). Both of these covers are presented in the CD booklet.

Notes: Vos Voisins is a really good example of the heavy organ styled, blues based, progressive rock. This seemed to be a somewhat popular breed of music in Quebec in the early 1970s, and can also be found in other fine groups like Champignons or Dionysos. Some wonderful fat guitar leads too. High quality French vocals as well. A couple of the tracks are piano lead introspective numbers. Best track is 'Le Monstre de la Main'.
