Generally, I tend not to reply to repost requests anymore, not because I'm trying to be rude, but it just got to the point where I had accumulated such a large backlog of them that I stopped replying altogether. I have saved all of them though, and out of everything that I've posted, I think I've gotten more requests for a repost of the Guy Lafleur disco album than practically anything else.
I know it's been quiet here for the last little while, but I figured with all the hockey-fuelled Olympic celebration here this past Sunday (fellow Canucks, you know what I'm talking about), I thought this would be a good time to finally get to this.
I had originally wanted to re-rip both the French and English albums, since I'd acquired a new and better cartridge/needle since the original post, but with my copy of the English LP being as warped as it is, that unfortunately didn't work out. Luckily, after a bit of frantic searching, I'd managed to dig up the burned CD that I had made from the original rips. After pumping up the volume a little and putting them through a tiny bit of noise reduction, here they are again..
Aside from the music itself, I'd also put up a few more pictures and made a few edits to the original post. In doing so, saw that one of the album's producers, Peter Alves had left a comment behind on the post. It's not too often that I get comments from artists and producers, so that was a nice surprise.
Anyway, with this out of the way, maybe this'll finally get all you hockey fans off my back.. (Just kidding, of course). For all of you getting a taste of this for the first (or second) time, enjoy this little artifact from the disco era. To refresh your memories, here's a news story from the CBC Archives, covering the album's release party.
