Fiori-Séguin - Deux cents nuits à l'heure (1978)

Harmonium's Serge Fiori and Sequin's Richard Seguin were already aware of each others talents, several years before their sole album as a duo. The pair appeared side by side as backup singers for Gilles Valiquette's album "Valiquette est en ville" in 1976. Already, the two voices blended magnificently. It was during this same year that Seguin (the group) packed it in for good., and Richard participated as backup singer for Harmonium's "L'Heptade". Harmonium, in turn, sees things slow down to a full stop in 1977. Both Fiori and Seguin were looking for other outlets which could sustain their creativity, resulting in "Deux cents nuits à l'heure" in 1978. This album, marrying the pair's progressive and balladeer sides, sees the continuous participation of the majority of Harmonium's most recent line up. Read full story at ProgQuebec

This is a great album! Although it doesn't reach the pinnacle that is "L'Heptade", it is one of the best records to come out of Québec in the seventies.

Definitely not to be missed!!!
