Rodier, Roger - Upon Velveteur (expanded) (special)
"Often compared to the work of Nick Drake, Upon Velveatur is a dense and mysterious French-Canadian folk-psych suite, featuring beautiful melodies, lush orchestration and scorching electric guitar. Barely circulated on its original release in 1972, it has gathered a major cult following and is now making its first appearance on CD, complete with five bonus tracks, rare photographs and sleevenotes by the enigmatic Mssr. Rodier himself."
"Super-rare Canadian lonerfolk album from 1972 with beautiful sweeping orchestration and some tasty West Coast guitar breaks. With a feel that recalls Nick Drake, Axelrod-style arrangements and a fragile, haunted quality, this lost gem has to be heard to be believed."-Freak Emporium
