One of the most important Progressive rock albums coming from La Belle Province was Dimension M (released in ’71) from frontman Frank Dervieux, and his back-up band happened to be the group that would call themselves Contraction after Dervieux’s sickness that would eventually take his life at a tragically low age. Not only was he all too young, but Dimension M is one of the defining albums for the coming prog tsunami that would flood Quebec throughout most of the 70’s and it helped the Quebecois cultural revolution. His backing band decided to remain together and recorded their self-titled debut album, which was released in early ’72. – Progarchives
