“Le Blues Des Cantons (Goodbye Sherbrooke)” is an auto-biographical leaving-home tune “en francais” ending with a long explosive piano/organ jam between David Vest (recorded by Sydney Galbraith at Desert Fish Studios) and Clayton Doley from Melbourne, Australia. Most of the tracks on this CD ended with long jams but most were trimmed back for the album. But this is one jam you don't want to end. (français au verso)


J'etais un jeune garcon - quand j'ai quitte ma ville
Arreté par la police – en liberté conditionelle
Ma blonde était enceite - ma vie a la poubelle
J'ai dit "Goodbye Sherbrooke – Ontario m'appelle"

Deux ans au Sherbrooke Record – deux semaines a La Tribune
Aprenti vendeur d'annonces - photographe a temp partiel
Dans l'temps des chambres noir - pas d'fax et pas d'couriel
J'ai dit "Goodbye Sherbrooke – Ontario m'appelle"
