CANO - The Best of CANO
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

CANO - The Best of CANOFrancophone hippies from Sudbury, CANO (Coopérative des Artistes du Nouvel-Ontario) were Canrock pioneers. Like Quebec’s Beau Dommage or Stratford, Ont.’s Perth County Conspiracy, CANO—fronted by the brother and sister team of André and Rachel Paiement—spent the 1970s espousing a strong sense of place through folk-rock gems like “Viens nous voir” and the ambitious “A la poursuite du nord.” Also includes the English hits “Carrie” and “Rebound,” recorded after André’s suicide in 1978.
