RECORD CRACK: Wah Wah 45’s reissue another Henri-Pierre Noël album
When someone discovers a custom made album at a thrift store/charity shop or yard sale, it can either be the same old mundane junk or completely blow you away. If you have the means, you try to track down the artist and see if you can share it to a wider audiences, which is what the guys at Wah Wah 45’s have done with Henri-Pierre Noël not only once, but twice. Two years ago they reissued an album simply called Piano but now they’re handling one originally released in 1980, called One More Step. As the old saying goes, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, as the front cover looks like any other album you’d find at a thrift store, with someone trying to sell his records at shows or conversations, hoping not only to be heard but to make a living. The Haitian pianist, who has made Canada home, now finds a second album of his reissued not only digitally, but on vinyl because it’s that damn good. The album was remastered from the original tapes by Kevin Moonstarr, and you’ll hear why its rediscovery is worth sharing with all.
