Gilles Lantier, a young reporter on the AFP newspaper, is suffering from a nervous breakdown. Realising that neither his friend Jean nor his girlfriend Eloïse can help him, he decides to stay with his sister Odile, who lives near Limoges. At a party one evening he meets a wealthy bourgeois woman named Nathalie Sylvener. It is love at first sight, and on his return to Paris, Gilles tells Eloïse that he is now devotedly attached to another woman. Although Nathalie agrees to live with him in Paris, she rejects Gilles' offer of marriage. It is not long before the couple have settled into a routine and their passion begins to cool.
In 1971 Alex Machin and Paul Naumann of the Toronto band Leather were struggling along with a new act called Island (which also included Ed Clemens and future Zon member Kim Hunt). The members of Nucleus heard about Machin and Naumann, auditioned them at their farm in Pickering and soon the new five-piece were searching for a record deal. They soon signed with Frank Davies' Daffodil Records who rechristened the group A Foot In Coldwater – which is an old English term meaning 'bad luck'. They recorded their self-titled debut in 1972 and the band's first single "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want" reached the Canadian charts as Top-25.
The band released A SECOND FOOT IN COLDWATER the next year. Two singles were released, "Love Is Coming" and "(Isn't Love Unkind) In My Life", their second crack in the top 25 on Billboard. ALL AROUND US hit the shelves in '73 and contained only 5 new songs, along with new versions of 4 tracks from the previous 2 lp's. "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want" hit the airwaves again and this time cracked Billboard's Top 10, as did the second time 'round for "(Isn't Love Unkind) In My Life".
Reissue of their 1972 Canadian hard rock debut album. Great album that goes from heavy riffing to dreamy mellowin and everything in between.
2011 collection from the British Rock legends, released to coincide with the digitally remastered reissues of their entire studio catalog. Features their best known tracks including 'Comfortably Numb', 'Money', 'Another Brick In The Wall, Pt. 2' and more. The first single-disc Pink Floyd compilation to surface in 30 years – the last being A Collection of Great Dance Songs, released as a stopgap between The Wall and The Final Cut – A Foot in the Door: The Best of Pink Floyd has its share of idiosyncrasies, quirks evident right from the choice of the moody “Hey You” as the set’s opener.
