Pollen – s/t

ProgQuebec (MPM06) The 1970s prog-rock scene was heavily anchored by the music coming out of Canterbury, England; Great Britain in general; and to some extent Italy, Germany and France. But music isn’t bounded by geography, and to my delight and recent discovery the ’70s progressive scene in the province of Quebec, Canada, was vibrant (and is still). ProgQuebec is part of nonprofit organization Musique ProgresSon, whose mission is to preserve and promote music from Quebec. The label has resurrected many obscure albums such as Pollen’s self-titled 1976 album, here reissued for the first time.
