Quebec Rock Vol. 2
Five Bucks on By-Tor marks its 200th post with a few selections from a 1975 budget-line Quebecois compilation entitled, fittingly enough, Quebec Rock Vol. 2.
A slow 'n' sultry gender-switched cover of The Beatles' "And I Love Her" by singer/actress Renée Claude.
Fin du commencement - Contraction
The original version of "Ste-Melanie Blues" (previously featured on the Ville Émard Blues Band post) and a short, bluesy instrumental named "Fin du commencement," courtesy of prog-rock collective Contraction.
A more traditionally French-sounding rock number with a crunchy, reggae-inflected guitar hook by Montreal-born singer/songwriter/tv host Claude Dubois.
