Harmonium - Si On Avait Besoin D'Une Cinquième Saison

Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Size: 83.54 MB

"Si on avait besoin d'une cinquième saison (If We Needed a Fifth Season), also known as Les Cinq Saisons (The Five Seasons), is the second album from Quebec band Harmonium, released in 1975. The album marks a departure from the folk rock sound of Harmonium towards a unique progressive rock sound. Serge Fiori, Michel Normandeau and Louis Valois are joined this time by Pierre Daigneault and Serge Locat. Marie Bernard also provides her expertise for the Ondes Martenot, while Judi Richards sings in "Histoires sans paroles". The album's theme revolves around the four seasons, with a track for each, and a new fifth season in "Histoires Sans Paroles", a 17-minute song. "Dixie" is also a notable track because of Locat's unforgettable piano solo. Si on avait besoin d'une cinquième saison, while a transitional album, became an influential album in Quebec's music history. Some lyrics on this album, like on Depuis l'Automne can show the separatist ideology shared by the band at that time.

1. Vert (Green)
2. Dixie (Une Toune Qui Me Revient) (Dixie [A Tune That I Remind])
3. Depuis L'automne (Since The Autumn)
4. En Pleine Face (Right In The Face)
5. Histoires Sans Paroles (Stories Without Lyrics)
