Bet.e & StefJazz/Bossa Nova ... LP
Bet.e & Stef Records/Return To Analog (Canada), 1997. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful selection of early work by the Candian bossa duo of Bet.e & Stef – a great team that makes some really musical magic together – with a vibe that's quite different than anything you might expect from the Great White North! The feel here is like perfect 60s bossa – light Astrud Gilberto-styled vocals, gentle Joao Gilberto-type guitar, and some straighter jazz elements that bring a bit of swing into the mix. Titles are a mix of standards and bossa classics – all done in a stripped-down, honest style – and titles include "Fever", "So Danco Samba", "Boomerang Baby", "I Put A Spell On You", "Agua De Beber", and "Black Coffee".

Lee GagnonJazzzzz ... LP
Barclay/Return To Analog (Canada), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest albums ever from this Canadian reedman – a set of long, open tracks that really show Lee Gagnon taking some new directions at the end of the 60s! The record has this very spacious vibe – one that comes partly from the way the other instrumentation comes together – with these pulsating rhythms that feature this great dance between the drums of Richard Provencal and bass of Michel Donato – then laced with the completely unique guitar style of Sonny Greenwich – a player who's unlike anyone else we can think of! Gagnon blows long solos, as does trumpeter Ron Proby – who wrote most of the tracks on the set – titles that include "Ode To The Ode", "Gene Structure Ramble", "Rybo-Nucleic Rhumba", and "Skin Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Genetic ControlImpressions ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1984. New Copy ... $16.99
Rare Montreal punk from Genetic Control – tracks from the group's hard-to-find 7" EP, matched here with a wealth of unreleased songs too! The songs are completely hardcore, and completely hard-driving – played at a pace and with intensity that matches the leading lights of the LA punk scene in its glory days – completely on fire, and maybe completely out of place in the Montreal scene that was the group's home turf in the early 80s! Songs are short, and pack a mighty solid punch – on titles that include "Suburban Life", "Dirty Rockers", "Love Rat", "Brave New World", "1984", "First Impressions", and "Urban Cowboy".

Beverly Glenn-CopelandBeverly Copeland ... LP
CBC/Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Completely sublime work from Beverly Glenn Copeland – a really unique artist who's almost a genre unto herself – and who sings here in a mix of folk, jazz, and soul – maybe resonant with work at the time by Terry Callier or Nina Simone, but every bit as individual as the best from those two giants too! The performance was recorded by CBC at a key moment in Beverly's career – after a time she'd spent on the scene in Montreal, really soaking up different influences and exploring musical pathways away from her American roots – to a point where she emerges here as a very righteous, yet very personal singer – clearly not immediately interested in chart success, even though she's got the power of a young Roberta Flack. Titles include "Northwind", "Swords Of Gold", "Don't Despair", "Nothing Beautiful", "Song From Beads", "Untitled", "Interval", "Reflections", and "Durocher". LP, Vinyl record album

HauntedHaunted ... LP
Trans World/Return To Analog (Canada), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A fantastic bit of garage rock from the Montreal scene of the late 60s – served up by a group with a sound that's as searing as anything playing on the Sunset Strip at the time! These guys use just the right amount of fuzz – never too much to fall into psych territory, and perfectly suited to their driving rhythms – which, at times, almost make these guys feel like Love in their earliest years – although obviously without Arthur Lee! The vocals, though, are equally great in their own sort of way – tight when needed, but tripping out on the longer songs – which really balances out the record, and gives the whole thing way more depth than just another group making guitar-based rock. Titles include "Horror Show", "Untie Me", "A Message To Pretty", "Out Of Time", "Searching For My Baby", and "125". LP, Vinyl record album

Le Quatuor De Jazz Libre Du QuebecLe Quatuor De Jazz Libre Du Quebec ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Proof that Canada had plenty of great jazz going on in the late 60s – a really freewheeling record by a group of free jazz musicians from Quebec! The album's got a vibe that easily rivals some of the hippest work of the Paris scene, post-1968 – and is maybe even more unusual, given that it was recorded the year before – with this fantastic energy that has the group members really creating on the fly – definitely inspired by the New York experiments of the ESP scene, but with a much rawer edge at times! The core quartet lineup features Jean Prefontaine on tenor sax, Yves Charbonneau on trumpet, Maurice Richard on bass, and Guy Thouin on drums – and they're joined by Pierre Nadeau on piano for this recording – on the titles "Fuseau", "Stalisme Dodecacophonique", "Signature/Valse A Grand Mere", and "Il N'Avait Jamais Fait Si Beau Si Longtemps".

Les DifferentsLes Differents ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Fantastic fuzz from a French Canadian combo of the 60s – one of the coolest garage bands we've ever heard from up north at the time, romping here with a style that's equal parts Sunset Strip and some of the hipper Parisian groups of the time! Lyrics are all in French, and the production has this nice sense of darkness that makes echo out of the organ lines, jangly guitar, and nice touches of fuzz – all flowing together with a style that sounds plenty magic all the way through, even if you can't always understand the lyrics. Some of the guys in the group were still teens at the time of recording, which you can hear in the youthful energy of the songs – and titles include "Je T'Aime", "Abandonne", "La Solitude", "Seul Sur Terre", "Je Ne Veux Plus", "Aimes Proudemment", and "Soyons Differents".

Les SinnersSatan (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A rare bit of Canadian psych from the start of the 70s – served up by a group with a sound that's all their own! Some numbers here are straightforward hard rockers, but others have a more complex approach – not proggy, almost performative – like some of the trippier French material of the period, which almost had a communal creation sort of vibe. There's plenty of searing guitars and very offbeat French lyrics – and the record's got a very nice sense of variety from tune to tune. Titles include "Quebec Nous T'Aimons", "Groovy", "Petite Fille T'Es Down", "OK L'Chien", "Charogne", "Heavy", and "Aux Petits Oiseux" – which is a very cool psychedelic raga that rounds out the record!

Lisa LougheedEvergreen Nights ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A sweet little 80s pop album from Canada – one that features songs originally written for a show called The Racoons – but which stand strong enough alone by themselves! Lisa Lougheed is a singer with a catchy style that really fits her 80s look on the cover – working with beats, keyboards, and guitar lines that could be lifted right off some IRS Records album from earlier in the decade – set to tuneful vocal tracks that also feature occasional vocals from Curtis King Jr and Stephen Lunt. Titles include "Growing Up", "Run With Us", "Ain't No Planes", "Stop The Clock", and "Hold Back Tomorrow" by Lougheed – plus Don't Fear The Fire" by Stephen Lunt, and duets with Curtis King Jr on "Here I Go Again" and "All Life Long".

OffenbachBulldozer – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A killer prog soundtrack from the Canadian scene of the 70s – one that rivals some of the best German and French use of rock at the time – but on a record that's far more obscure! Most of the tracks here are instrumental, and make great use of the piano, organ, and saxophone of Gerald Boulet – who also sings a bit on the record, along with pianist Pierre Harel and female singer Mouffe – but in a way that almost always seems to defer to the instrumentation! The group's also got great work on guitar from Jean Gravel – whose fuzzy tones really fill out the record – and the whole thing's an overlooked gem that shows that there was plenty of proggy goodness up north during the 70s. Titles include "Solange Tabarnac", "Hey Boss", "Magic Rouge", "Ah Comme On S'Ennuie", "SOS", "Bataille", and "Marche De Peanut". LP, Vinyl record album

Perth County ConspiracyPerth County Conspiracy ... LP
CBC/Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
An obscure acid folk nugget from the Canadian scene – a set that's so rare, the initial pressing of a few hundred copies was only circulated to broadcast stations by Canadian Radio! The quality of the work is far better than its obscurity, though – as these guys have a warm way of mixing acoustic guitars and harmony vocals – sliding tunefully through post-folk territory, somewhere in a space between Simon & Garfunkel and early America – but hipper than both, as there's lots of unusual twists and turns along the way! The group take on tunes by Dylan and Donovan – but most of the songs are their own, which are the best – titles that include "Take Your Time", "Woman For All Seasons", "Lace & Cobwebs", "Hindsight", "Mr Truthful Licks", and "If You Can Wait".

Oscar PetersonLive In Paris – 1961 ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
A great live document of the Oscar Peterson trio at the start of the 60s – that trio that provided a second chapter to the pianist's career, as he moved away from working with a guitar, and instead embraced the role of drums in the trio! The drums, though, are handled here in a very different way than usual – with the amazing Ed Thigpen on the kit, open to many sounds and ideas as he swings things along with bassist Ray Brown – really providing a richly creative setting as Oscar stretches out on piano – on titles that include "Moanin", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "I Remember Clifford", "My Heart Stood Still", "Where Do I Go From Here", and "Band Call".

Oscar PetersonLive In Paris 1962 ... LP
Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (France), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
A set of rare live material from legendary pianist Oscar Peterson – recorded in Paris during a time when his star was really rising on the global scene! The tracks were recorded for French radio, at the Olympia Theater in the city – and the package features the famous trio with Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! For fans of the important Thigpen years – which most folks know from the early 60s Verve Recordings – this extra material is a dream come true – especially as the set is from a time when the trio was in top form. Many tracks are quite long – in territory similar to the Live In Chicago recordings by the group – and titles include "Cubano Chant", "Whisper Not", "The Lamp Is Low", "Jet Song", "Tin Tin Deo", and "Yours Is My Heart Alone".

SexSex ... LP
Trans Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
The debut album from this heavy Canadian power trio – a group who definitely put themselves on the line with their name – and the weird cover image of them running topless through a field! Fortunately, the sound's a lot less dated than that might make you expect – really hard-wailing in an early hard rock mode – that style that was probably brewed up in blues rock a few years before, but really set free during the psychedelic era – which makes for lots of long guitar solos from Yves Rousseau, alongside the vocals and harmonica of Serge Gratton, and the monstrous drums of Robert Trepanier. If these guys were in the UK, they might have been huge – although they unfortunately titled one of the songs on the album "I Had To Rape Her" (were they nuts?) – and that might have kept this one out of the mainstream. Other cuts include "Come Wake Up", "Night Symphony", "Love Is A Game", "Scratch My Back", and "Not Yet". Note that this reissue truncates the title of the controversial song! LP, Vinyl record album

Horace SilverLive In Paris 1959 ... LP
Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (Canada), 1959. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful late 50s live recording from the Horace Silver Quintet – one that features some very long performances of key songs from the group's book, with some very extended solos, and a much different vibe than some of the studio versions! As with the Jazz Messengers during this time, the Silver group just couldn't miss – and they really brought something special to live performances, which could often give Horace space to be expressive in completely different ways, and the horn players a chance to state their genius even more than ever! In this case, the genius talents are Junior Cook on tenor and Blue Mitchell on trumpet – in the group with Gene Taylor on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include an 18 minute take on "Doodlin", a 12 minute take on "Senor Blues", and a long version of "Sweet Stuff". LP, Vinyl record album

SlocheJ'un Oeil ... LP
RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Soaring space rock from Sloche – a group who work here in a heady blend of keyboards and vocals, stretched out on long tracks that never lose their energy at all! The approach is relatively unique – as the group has two keyboardists, Rejean Yacola and Martin Murray – who play a mix of Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, piano, Clavinet, celeste, mini moog, and other keys too – while the vocals harmonies along with the soaring lines, all given a strong kick by the rhythm section at the core! There's almost a Jon Anderson/Rick Wakeman vibe to the way the vocals and keyboards interact – but these guys definitely have a very different spirit than Yes – as you'll hear on tracks that include "C'Pas Fin Du Monde", "Le Kareme D'Eros", "J'Un Oeil", "Algebrique", and "Potage Aux Herbes Douteuses".

SlocheStadacone ... LP
RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Sloche only ever recorded two albums, and both of them are gems – the kind of overlooked Canadian 70s prog treasures that were lurking in the shadows right behind Rush! The group have a keyboard-heavy approach, but one that's never too noodly at all – as the rhythm section is super-tight, and drives them on with sharp changes that clearly draw inspiration from fusion, but find a very strong outlet in the group's long-jamming rock instrumentation! There's less vocals here than on the group's debut – which only makes more space for work on Fender Rhodes, mini moog, Clavinet, Hammond B3, and other keyboards – on titles that include "Il Faut Sauver Barbara", "Stadacone", "Ad Hoc", "Le Cosmophile", and "Iscaaron".

Vos VoisinsVos Voisins (with download) ... LP
Prog Quebec/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
French funky rock from the Quebecois scene of the 70s – served up here by a really great group who match the sharpness of some of their best contemporaries on the European scene! There's a heck of a lot of jazz in the approach of Vois Voisins – especially in the way they build the rhythms and solos with fusion-like intensity – but there's also proggish elements that clearly mark these guys as a rock group, too – including the occasional mellower moment, which really lets the singer step out. The instrumentation is the familiar guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but these guys really manage to do a lot with them, especially when some wiggier synthesizer comes into the mix – on titles that include "Le 3/4 De L'Archeveque", "Le Monstre De La Main", "Y'A Juste De T'Ca", "Voisins", "Sous La Lune", and "L'Instrumental".

Return To Analog (Canada), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If Adam's Eden was this groovy, he might not have gotten into trouble with Eve, the apple, and all of that other business! This Eden's a French Canadian group from the 70s – and one that's got a wonderfully proggy sound – super-strong drums, long-spinning keyboards, and criss-crossing guitar lines that get occasional vocal support – but which are more than comfortable enough here working on long instrumental passages, of the type that put this record tight next to some of the best Italian prog classics of the 70s. Vocals are by Jean-Bernard Borja, but only feature on a few of the songs – leaving plenty of room for instrumental magic on cuts that include "Intuition", "La Foret", "Allias", "La Ballerine Musclee", "Transe", and a nice take on Faure's "Pavane".

Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record with a sexy cover and a slinky sound to match – the rare second album from the cool French instrumental combo Les Jaguars – a 60s group who start in modes that resemble American surf guitar, but really take off into some great directions of their own! The style here is familiar – bass, two guitars, and drums – but the quality of the instrumentation gets nicely complex, and opens up way past catchy themes and references to sand and surf – as the group turn in mostly original tunes throughout, and have some especially great interplay between the two guitars – at a level that might normally be carried by an additional keyboard or tenor sax. The record's a hell of an instro rocker – way more so than you'd guess from the cheesecake cover – and titles include "Tourbillon", "Guitare Cha Cha", "Melle Yeye", "Guitare Strip", "Guitare Jet", "Dors Mon Amour", and "Jaguar Shake".

Fantastic work from Thelonious Monk – a superbly-recorded live set from early 60s Paris – done with his legendary quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor! The music here is wonderful – tracks that are often quite long, and stretched out nicely from the Columbia Records material by the group – with especially long improvisations by Monk that really reignite our respect for his genius – and the kind of soulful solos from Rouse that are always a perfect match! The bass of John Ore is beautifully recorded too – maybe even more powerful here than usual – and Frankie Dunlop completes the group with wonderfully deft work on drums. Titles include "Well You Needn't", "Jackie-ing", "Hackensack", and "Rhythm A Ning". LP, Vinyl record album

A prog monster from mid 70s Quebec – and a great example of the well-crafted instrumentation that often graced that scene, but hardly ever got its due on our side of the border! Morse Code are a quartet – with fantastic guitar, keyboard, bass, and drums – and guitarist Daniel Lemay also plays a bit of flute, which adds a jazzy touch to the instrumentation from time to time. Lyrics are in French – which might be part of the under-discovery of this gem – and the music maybe has stronger ties to UK prog of a few years before than mainstream Canadian rock – and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "La Marche Des Hommes", "La Ceremonie De Minuit", "Cocktail", "Le Pays D'Or", "Probleme", and "Un Goutte De Pluie". LP, Vinyl record album

The group do a great job of mixing in some airier numbers with the rockers – almost evoking a late Zombies/Argent vibe on some of the vocals, even though the approach is completely different – and the whole thing's a great bridge between late 60s psych and new 70s modes to come.

A gem of a record from the Canadian scene of the 70s – issued by the house label of Radio Canada, with a very unassuming cover – but a sound that flows out with a heck of a lot more vibrancy than you might expect! Ted Moses plays both acoustic and electric piano, and also blows some really fantastic tenor too – with a style that's soulful and modal, a bit spiritual – maybe a bit like the hippest 70s albums in the US on Catalyst or Muse, but a lot more obscure – given that the record was only aimed at a small local audience. The songwriting is great – all original tunes by Ted – and the rest of the quintet includes trumpet from Mike Malone, bass from Richard Homme, drums and percussion from Terry Clarke, and lots of great work on flutes from Kathryn Moses, who made some great records of her own during the 70s.

A completely wonderful album from percussionist Guy Warren – a creative musician who made lots of great records over the years – but who maybe never topped himself after this gem from the late 60s UK scene! The set was done as part of the legendary Landsdowne Series for Columbia UK – and features Warren's percussion alongside some key Brit jazz talents – including Don Rendell on tenor and soprano saxes, Ian Carr on trumpet, Amancio D'Silva on guitar, and Michael Garrick on piano! Warren composed and arranged the whole thing, and brings in plenty of percussion too – but the album really gets its depth from the presence of these modern jazz giants – all of whom really shape the sound with wonderful contributions and some very strong solos.

Sweet AOR grooves from Gilles Rivard – a Canadian singer from the start of the 80s, and one who works here with a very jazzy vibe! The lyrics are all in French, but it's clear that Gilles is a hell of a songwriter – able to come up with songs that are smartly structured, as well as catchy – and delivered with fantastic electric piano throughout – captured in a production style that's totally tight, but wonderfully understated too – like some of the true lost AOR treasures from the time! The change in language keeps this one from ever sounding too commercial – and in fact, there's moments here that remind us of some of Ed Motta's best revival work of the style in more recent years. Arrangements and production are by Jean-Marie Benoit – who certainly deserves some good credit for the album's strength – and titles include "Partir", "Vivre Seul", "Entre Parentheses", "Je Reviens", "Etoile De Mer", "Dimanche De Mai", and "Ca Va Ca Va Brazilia".

A fantastic album from overlooked Candian tenorist Billy Robinson – a hell of a player, and one who might have been huge if this album were issued on a regular label in the US – instead of as a project by Radio Canada up north! Robinson has a wonderful vision here – gently spiritual, but in a more straight ahead way – working in this relaxed soulful combo that really sparkles with piano from Pierre Leduc and guitar from Peter Leitch – the latter of whom is a chromatic genius, in the Sonny Greenwich school – and really finds a great way to illuminate the tunes! Robinson's tone dominates, but the album's also got rock-solid rhythms from Erroll Waters on bass and Jim Norman on drums – on original tunes that include "Quebec On My Mind", "Evolution's Blend", "The Family", "It's Raining Ashes", and "Homing".
