    Posted: July 13 2006 at 18:43
Ever since Progresson released 3 of their CDs, I've gone completely crazy about this band. Now, I seriously think they are one of the best and most sadly underrated in PA.

They deserve more attention than they have. They play a blend of folk/jazz/rock/classical music which is heavenly good.

Maybe I look like I'm exaggerating a little bit here but I just hope that this thread will attract at least 1 or 2 people to the Maneige's page here on PA to at least give a listen to the samples or eventually even buy one of their albums.

I higly recommend them with all my heart Embarrassed Tongue

I know they are not expensive here. I can get them for 14$ at my record store. However, for those who don't live in Québec, I think E-Bay (or anything like E-Bay) is the best way to get it cheap.

I know Bluesaga got one for 18$.

I second the recommendation for this band, they are awesome. The new live archive album Live à L'Évêché is amazing. Now that ProgQuebec is releasing their stuff it's easy to find (though PQ still doesn't have the rights to the first two albums) - they have very good distribution... in the USA all the major prog vendors (Wayside, Syn-Phonic, Laser's Edge, Big Balloon etc) carry them.

The samples sound very good, but they are hard to get in CD. I shall scan eBay for cheap copies though.

I picked up a copy of Libre Sevice the other day on ebay for 12 bucks, really looking forward to hearing it (I already have Ni Vent on mp3).

Ni Vent... Ni Nouvelle... is wonderful.  Alas I don't have any more of their output.

Edit: I have Les Porches too, but have yet to hear it.

You are not exaggerating, Bern, Maneige is amazingly good and sadly overlooked band. Les Porches is my favourite album by them, and , probably one of the best albums of 70's progressive music.

$16 actually. Wink

I'm listening to it now as a matter of fact.  It's really good, but I'm not sure if it will top Ni Vent... only time will tell.

How's their live album (the one that was issued recently by ProgQuebec)?  I might pick it up eventually to satisfy me until the debut and Les Porches are released. Tongue

I'll be in Montreal next week, would it be fairly easy to find a record store that carries the ProgQuebec reissues?  Also would $14 be the going rate at most places, give or take a buck or 2?  (amazon.ca has 3 of their CD's, all for $17.99 each.)

All common record stores I've been to in Montreal carries the ProgQuébec reissues. However, I found that that Music World offers by far the best price Thumbs Up

Live à l'évéché is really good but it's the less essential of the three which have been reissued. It's filled with great improvisations and the sound quality is excellent. Clap

Bern, the best way to fix this under exposure is to review them maneige albums so they get more reviews and climb up the top lists of the site.
 
Seriously guys we all whine and complain about how obscure bands such as maneige (or Sloche, Conventum etc...)  never get any attention , but they get no exposure through the reviewing.
 
 
 
Get to it guysWink
