“Cane and Able were one of the many groups that came out of the collective surrounding the Lafayette Afro Rock Band in the early seventies” (author unknown, quoted all over the internet). Amazingly, Frank Abel is missing from the line up – one’d have thought the band’s name was a pun on his family name. Anyhoo, the band recorded two lp’s: “[Cane And Able]” (AKT 1972) and “Relating A Message To You” (Epic 1972), both via CBS France. They’re uneven albums but “Who’s gonna take the weight” and “Stoned groove” are deluxe. Sadly, the latter’s not online. So, what with le Tour approaching, how about this here Michel Fugain cover instead eh? Well, apart from the idea to approach translating “Une belle histoire” (1972) as “Be free”, there’s nothing much original about it. Still: régalez-vous!
