Dreamy vocal pop from early 70s Canada – a set that owes a lot to the 60s sweetness of Sergio Mendes
& Brasil 66
! The Montage have an approach that's a bit more rock-based overall, but there's definitely some Sergio
-like touches in the music – especially the way the two female vocalists sing together in a nicely spaced-out sort of sound – warm, but with an undercurrent of coldness – mixed in with some very groovy rhythms from Hagood Hardy on vibes, electric piano, marimba, and percussion! There's also a fair bit of bossa in the mix too – not as overtly as on Brasil 66
records, and more filtered down into a 70s sort of hipness – expanded out with wider pop influences, and some traces of Sunshine styles as well. Titles include great versions of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", "Come Saturday Morning", "Baby I'm A Want You", "Guantanamera", "It's Too Late/
I Feel The Grass Grow Under My Feet", and "If" – and the record would be right at home on A&M!
