    Opus 5 ~ 1989 ~ Volume 1: Contre Courant
    Opus 5 ~ 1989 ~ Volume 1: Contre Courant
    genre: fusion
    country: canada
    quality: lossless (ape cdr, cue)
    time: 1:16'17"  size: 442 mb
    misc.: recorded '76

    As the progressive movement was making more and more adept in La Belle Province, more and more groups got contracts and as Celebration record lost Harmonium to CBS , they offered a contract to OPUS-5 . This band can be seen as a good cross in between HARMONIUM and MANEIGE or SLOCHE. Some GENTLE GIANT and JETHRO TULL influences are also evident. Their first album is full of delicious melodies with soft yet incisive vocals and great flute passages all on 5 superb compositions by five superb musicians. Unfortunately , their record label went bankrupt just as the recording of their second album was finished . That album will have to wait until 89 to see the light of day. Part of the band will form CONCERT that will release one album in 60 as the disco tsunami had swept everything in that part of Canada.
    Opus-5 can be highly recommended to fans of the above-mentioned bands but also everyone who enjoy calm folkish fusion.

    avatarEduardo, Yes, indeed it is a copy of the cdr 1 album, other tracks on cdr album Babylon ~ 1978 ~ Babylon. Sorry that it was misled.

    Hello, like your post, but I have a doubt 'cos I've just download the files and found something curious. Total tracks are 9, and not 13 as it is said in the list. But there's more: the first 5 tracks belong to the previous release of the group, which is called "Volume 1: Contre Courant". I've got the real album that you post here and none of the pieces is the same of some of the tracks 6 to 9 of your post. These are fantastic and I wonder who play those ones and the album in which they were recorded. Do you have the answer? please clear my confusion, I'll appreciate it a lot.
