François Cousineau: L’initiation

I’m just not finding the records I want at the thrifts (right now I’m a little obsessed with collecting soundtracks from Canadian movies), so I’ve been forced to go to ebay. I’ve bought several CDs off the ‘bay in the last 6 months but this is my first vinyl purchase. The shipping charges are killer – in this case as much as the record. The film is a 1969 sexploitation flick from Quebec (a genre that has come to be known as “maple syrup porn”) with an excellent score by François Cousineau and vocals by Diane Dufresne and Canadian disco queen Patsy Gallant.
