***NOW AVAILABLE ON CD!!! Almost 40 years after the first release of the cult quebecois sexploitation movie Après Ski by director Roger Cardinal, Pluton Records are proud to announce the release of a limited 500 copies reissue of it’s mythical sound track on vinyl. A holy grail and masterpiece of Quebec funk, this original score is renown and sought after worldwide for it’s groovy and jazzy legendary B side, loaded with drum breaks and warm horns. Composed and performed by JOHN RANGER and his band, ILLUSTRATION, until now the identity of the real composer and cast of the funky side of Après Ski was a total mystery. In order to please the collectors out there, Pluton have included a previously unreleased tune, found on the original master tracks brought out of the attic to be remastered. Composed by the original producer of the movie, JEAN ZALOUM, It slept all those years on the masters, never turning up neither on the movie nor on the soundtrack record. Pluton are also adding more sounds from the movie, including a psychedelic freak out, string backgrounds from the OST and some funny French dialogs from the movie, including a comedy bit by RENE ANGELIL, CELINE DION’s famous husband and manager. The Après Ski movie is a classic in the “maple syrup porn” movie fashion, a term coined to describe the wave of erotic movies that splashed Quebec in the early seventies. This sexploitation craze might have been French Canada’s equivalent to blaxpoitation. (STREET DATE - 1/24/2011)
