Forgotten Treasure : Diane Tell “En pleurer ou en rire” (1977)

Producers of soulful and funky musique Québecoise during the late 70s and early 80s weren’t so numerous. I’m thinking of the duo JF William & Serge Laporte known as Bill, Georges Thurston also known as Boule Noire who ran the Magique record label around that time. As for female singers/composers, …

If you’re like me, you may have a decent chunk of records in your collection that, for one reason or another, have yet to be discovered. When it comes to music I tend to bite off more than I can chew, but somewhere deep in my subconscious I know that …

Forgotten Treasure: Camp Lo “Uptown Saturday Night” (1997)

Ok let’s do a test. If I say “Luchini” what comes to your mind? Did the entire ‘Luchini’ video play in your mind? You know the one with the fly mamas at the dinner and the robbery with presidents face masks on. Did you just remember how much you love …

Forgotten Treasure: Miles Davis “My Funny Valentine” (1964)

Ok Ok saying Miles Davis and Forgotten in the same sentence is pretty ridiculous, I know. Davis is a name that has and will continue to surpass time because of the amazing musician he was and the epic life he lived. But hear me out, see recently my mother has …

Forgotten Treasure: Coco Steel & Lovebomb “Jet Cadet” (Acid Mix)

Coco Steel & Lovebomb. The name, which could be suitably affixed to any cheesy synth pop band from the 80’s, actually belongs to a british electronic trio whose productions feed on the 90’s garage movement, soul and a lil bit of that disco. The 90’s were their hayday, and at …
