The very aptly titled A Summer's Night is a lost slice of turn-of-the-'70s Quebec psychedelia. After the October Crisis (October 1970), French Canadian music will take a resolutely national turn, leading to the rise of French-singing groups like Harmonium and Beau Dommage in 1973-1974 (prog rock group Morse Code will even switch from English to French around that time). However, A Summer's Night was recorded a little prior to the terrorist events that will precipitate the Quebec sovereignty movement. As a result, the music is lighthearted and the lyrics sung in English -- the title track is the only song with French lyrics, and these are sung with a fake English accent! The lush voice of singer Fran Losier was Montreal's main asset. Comfortable in folk ("Circles and Line"), acid folk ("Infinity"), and jazz settings ("Summertime," "Third Floor Walkup"), she comes off as a surprisingly strong performer with good singing technique to boot (a rarity when dealing with...psychedelic-era rarities). Guitarist Jean Cousineau and pianist/bassist Gilles Losier round up the core of the band, which has a very pleasant kind of camaraderie going on ("A Summer's Night," "Sometimes in Stillness"). Recorded in 1970, the album was produced by Richie Havens, who also contributes sitar on the eight-minute acid-laced closer "Infinity." Definitely strong enough for the mainstream, this debut and sole album by Montreal should have been a hit. History decided otherwise. A very nice album, particularly for "What About the Wind?," "A Summer's Night," and "Infinity." ~ François Couture, All Music Guide

Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
Created by Merrell Fankhauser in 1964 after he arrived in Lancaster and the Antelope Valley area, Merrell and The Exiles are probably more interesting historically than for purely musical reasons. Born in Louisville, Kentucky on the 23rd of December, 1943, Fankhauser had previously lived on the California Coast, in Pismo Beach. There he began playing surf music, even winning the Arroyo Grande Battle of the Bands in March 1962 and being part of the Sentinals and the Impacts (one instrumental LP Wipe-Out (Del-Fi 1234) 1963).
In Lancaster Fankauser met Jeff Cotton, John French and Larry Willey and they became Merrell and The Exiles. Their first recordings took place in a small studio of Palmdale, California, at Glenn Recording Studios, which were owned and directed by Glenn MacArthur. All the songs were recorded live on 2 track tape. In April 1964, Please Be Mine was No. 9 in the local Palmdale station KUTY charts! In all, two or three singles were recorded for Glenn Records and pressed in very limited quantities.
More Merrell and The Exiles sessions took place in Hollywood in 1966 at the Gary Paxton Studio and in 1967 at the Gold Star Studio with a changing line-up. Some of their songs (Too Many Heartbreaks, Suzy Cryin) were in fact released on the Fapardokly album, another Fankhauser creation. The other songs however, had to wait until the '80s before they were released in various forms.
Bill Dodd also played with Fankhauser in Fapardokly and H.M.S. Bounty. John French and Jeff Cotton left to join Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, another group from the High Desert area, but in 1970 Cotton returned with Merrell to form MU (also with Larry Willey). Greg Hampton also later played with Denny King.
The retrospective, Early Years album consists largely of surf and garage rock tracks. Aside from the few 45 tracks, the majority were previously unreleased. Don't Call On Me is notable for featuring the first guitar solo ever recorded by then fledgling guitarist Jeff Cotton. Yes I Love You, another cut on this album was originally intended for inclusion on the legendary Fapardokly album but wasn't used in the end. This album is primarily of archival interest, however. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini / Vernon Joynson)

Tapestry Of Delights:
This Birmingham-based band included Chris Wood who was later a founder member of Traffic. They enjoyed a Top Thirty hit at the time with their ska-styled Rudi's In Love. Nowadays their rare album attracts interest from connoisseurs of progressive rock. Far and away the best track on it is Mr. Armageddon, a stunningly powerful slice of doomy psychedelia with brass (!), which deserved far more success than it achieved when issued as a 45.
The album, produced by Gus Dudgeon, also includes versions of Coming Down and Love Song For the Dead Ché (songs written by Joseph Byrd and performed with his band The United States Of America on their album). Certainly an album well worth investigating but avoid paying well in excess of £100 for an original.
Locomotive member Norman Haines had earlier played in a mid-sixties beat band called The Brumbeats, but not the band who issued a 45. Haines soon became Locomotive's main songwriter, writing their first 45, Broken Heart, a soul-based number. The flip was a version of the bluebeat number, Rudy, A Message To You. The Jamaican influence remained with Haines when he wrote Rudi's In Love, a dance number which became a hit in the short-term but a millstone in the long-term since it prevented the group from being taken seriously as a progressive rock band which is what they really wanted to be. This was a great pity 'cos their next 45 was the excellent Mr. Armageddon, which was their finest moment and had the potential in 1969 to be a hit, instead it flopped. Their fourth single was a cover of ? and The Mysterians' I'm Never Gonna Let You Go, a much more poppy offering, though the flip, You Must Be Joking, was a progressive rock number also featured on their album. When this too bombed the writing was on the wall and Mick Hincks and Bob Lamb soon departed to form Dog That Bit People. Norman Haines went on to form Sacrifice (who did not record) but after their demise EMI released an album of their material credited to the Norman Haines' Band. It is now one of the very rarest artefacts of UK progressive rock and much coveted by collectors.

WIth a rich twin guitar and twin keyboards line-up andan excellent musicianship, Locanda delle Fate from Asti went totally unnoticedat the time their only LP came out on Polydor, arriving too late for the declining italianprog movement.
It's a pity, because their rich, symphonic blend ofprogressive rock is well inspired and original, despite the obvious influencesby the romantic side of english prog bands. Forse le lucciole non si amanopiù has lately become an example of the italian classical-oriented prog, withthe nice interplay between the multiple keyboards, dreamy atmospheres and goodvocal parts, like in the long title-track, Profumo di colla bianca or theclosing Vendesi saggezza.
The Live CD, recorded in 1977 and released in1993, can interest the group fans, though it only contains an unreleased track, Lagiostra, the other six cuts coming from the LP.
It has a good bootleg-like recording quality.
Disappointed by the lack of interest, the band releasedtwo more commercial singles in 1978 and 1980 (the last one under the name LaLocanda) before disbanding.
In 1996 a reunion with five of the seven originalmembers (less singer Sasso and keyboard player Conta) that have released a newalbum in 1999, Homo homini lupus, an 11-track work, good but moresong-oriented and very far from the dreamysound of their great album.
Guitarist Ezio Vevey took part in 2002 in therock-opera La rete di Ulisse with the group Genoma, that also includedNik Comoglio (keyboards), Cyrus Scognamiglio (bass) and Steve Abrate (drums).
