Notes

From the back cover:
Often compared to the work of Nick Drake, Upon Velveatur is a dense and mysterious French-Canadian folk-psych suite, featuring beautiful melodies, lush orchestration and scorching electric guitar. Barely circulated on its original release in 1972, it has gathered a major cult following and is now making its first appearance on CD, complete with five bonus tracks, rare photographs and sleevenotes by the enigmatic Rodier himself.

As for my own comments, I would compare this to Al Stewart before Nick Drake. It seems very introspective like Drake's work, but has more of the Stewart story telling style to it.
Songs like Am I Supposed To Let It By Again? (Above The Covers) dive deeper into rock territory than Stewart of Drake ever did.
A lot of this is also lighter fare than Stewart or Drake. It's light and airy and orchestrated just right.
Overall a well rounded album in my opinion.
Sometimes it reminds me of Mark Fry - Dreaming With Alice a little bit too.
