AllMusic Review by

Yet another so-called "best-of" collection covering Robert Charlebois' "Gamma years" (1967-1971), this one released on LP by the obscure label Alta in 1975. It stands out only because of its strange track list. Most of the material comes from the singer's last two albums for Gamma, Un Gars Ben Ordinaire and Robert Charlebois [Aka Le Mont Athos], with only one song from each of the three previous LPs. Even stranger is the fact that "Lindberg" and "Ordinaire," Charlebois' biggest hits from that period, have been omitted. This repackage is harder to find -- some people consider it a collector's item -- but its rarity aside it has no redeeming factor whatsoever.
