AllMusic Review by

The second of three Robert Charlebois CDs titled Collection Souvenir and released in 1989-1990. These "greatest-hits" albums are among the cheapest, most insulting items in the singer's discography. Short for a CD at 39 minutes, it culls tracks from Robert Charlebois Louise Forestier (1968) and Québec Love (1969), plus one song from the 1971 Robert Charlebois [Aka Le Mont Athos]. It presents interesting cuts from the singer's psychedelic period, but some of the essentials are missing. The packaging is as basic as possible and the mastering absolutely horrible. To add to the insult, "Egg Generation" starts abruptly halfway into the first verse -- the first 12 seconds are missing!
