Eclipse - Eclipse (1976)
Copped this one, back in the Golden Age of the Blogosphere, from the quite unfortunately defunct Mutant Sounds blog, where I found probably hundreds of genuinely awesome obscurities. I'd link to it, but all (I believe) of its links are dead, making it pretty much torture to look through its archives.
Excellent, out-of-print French-Canadian space rock, with male and female vox, as well as some apparent Eloy influence -- those crescendos into soaring synth solos on "Vision Intérieure"! -- and funky disco undertones. I guess they went full-on disco with their next record; anyone heard it? Is it worth $2?
