Franck Dervieux – Dimension M. 1972 Canada

Dervieux's album is the root system for later bands such as Contraction and Ville Emard Blues Band. Keyboard heavy progressive rock, with a looser structure, making it highly appealing on repeated listens. A very important album, and one of Quebec's finest.

Personal collection
LP: 1972 Columbia
CD: 2012 ProgQuebec

The original features a wonderful textured gatefold cover, and comes with a full 4 page insert. The CD features unique liner notes, photos and an English translation of the original insert. It is transferred from vinyl, but they did their best to maintain the integrity of the original sound. This has been a much anticipated reissue, and many are glad to see it's finally surfaced.
