Editors’ Notes Feeling something blowin' in the wind, this popular Québécois crooner made a defiant art-rock move with his brilliant 1970 song cycle. Combining orchestra and choir with rock instruments—meet future King Crimson bassist Tony Levin—Ferland takes listeners on a self-referential, Sgt. Pepper's-like, prologue-to-epilogue journey through love, sex, and death. He may have shocked his audience with the outrageous "God Is an American," but scrumptiously arranged gems like "Le chat du café des artistes" and "Le petit roi" have become Canadian standards.
