Sloche - J'un Oeil CD

SKU ProgQuebec 35
Excellent progressive/jazz-rock band from Montreal who recorded two extremely well regarded and hugely sought-after albums in the mid 1970s and who then basically dissapeared without a trace. To me, they combine elements of Canterbury jazz-rock with certain passages that resemble (instrumental) Gentle Giant and other good music of that era. Both of their albums have never before been legitimately released on CD and are among the most requested items to be legitimately reissued. The long, hard work of ProgQuebec has paid off, because they are finally issued now, straight off of the master tapes and sounding great, with really nice 16 page booklets with rare photos and a history of the band. Highly recommended.

"The two albums from this Fusion quintet from Quebec, with a style reminiscent of Canterbury groups, are the MOST REQUESTED reissues from Quebec. FINALLY, they are now available on CD! And thanks to Sony/BMG, we have been able to remaster this album directly from the original master tapes for outstanding sound quality. One listen and you will understand the group's strong standing amongst progressive music lovers around the globe. Their first album, "J'un oeil" highlights a group in development who is already quite capable of being both as spacey and funky as better-known bands from the U.K. and the U.S. Included is a 16-page booklet with photos and group history. This album is an essential purchase for any Quebec progressive rock collection, as well as world-centric prog collections in general. Come discover (or re-discover) Sloche's excellence!"
