Review by Sean Trane
4 stars ProgQuebec's very first release couldn't have been a more emblematic album, really. Whet better way to start giving a second life to Quebec's 70's prog scene other than starting with this precise group and its highly symbolic Live à Montreal album. That very album that can almost be seen as the source and inspiration of the progressive movement that will rock La Belle Province until the turn of the decade.

For the reviews of both albums, please see the album's reviews in their respective pages, but let it be known that the debut live album is augmented by one bonus track (placed in the context of the concert, but it was previously available as the b-side of a single) and that the album's over all length did not allow for a single disc, so it is rather strangely sprawled on this re-issue's two discs. So three tracks of their first album is present on the first disc, before having the studio album, and in terms of a finale, both sides of their second non-album single with the delicious and groundbreaking Yama Nekh and the twelve string guitar piece S'Assoir Dans Les Champs.

Yes this re-issue was really the best way to start ProgQuebec's extremely noble re-issue campaign, making sure the artistes get the full benefits of their works. Maybe, just maybe, without this re-issue of VEBB's works the second miracle of Quebec's prog might not have happened, just as the original vinyl's existence was as essentiakl to the first miracle back in the 70's.
