The Show

  • Two years after the Superfrancofête concert J'ai vu le loup, le renard, le lion, the organisers of the celebrations for the National Holiday in 1976 (the 23 June) decided to create another giant outdoor concert. This time, the political content and the sense of identity needed to be stronger, and five singers were chosen instead of three. The members of the concert of 1974 were rapidly thrown together, each artist providing their own musicians. In 1976, an orchestra were provided, with lots of time for practice, collaborations, and even a collaborative composition session, which led to Chacun dit je t'aime. The concert took place twice, in Québec on the Plaines d'Abraham, on 21 June 1976 and in Montréal on Mont-Royal, on 23 June 1976. Robert Charlebois and Gilles Vigneault were again part of the event, with the addition of Claude Léveillée, Jean-Pierre Ferland and Yvon Deschamps, the last a surprising inclusion, since he is known foremost as a comedian, and then a singer. The patriotism in songs like Gens du pays (sung by all five) is mostly in the songs by Vigneault, but also Charlebois' The frog song. The rocker had already performed his songs successfully two years previously, therefore he had to perform songs from his new record, Longue distance. A new version of Fu Man Chu was also performed. Charlebois also sung a duet with Léveillée on Les vieux pianos with two pianos on stage. All five contributed parts of their traditional-influenced songs in the La même gigue medley. The sound is better than on the previous album, and 1 Fois 5 is a good example of singer-songwriters from the 1970s in Québec and of the nationalism of the time.
  • The last replaying of the concert was done at Radio-Québec, on Saint-Jean-Baptiste in 1997.
  • At Saint-Jean-Baptiste on 23 June 2006, France D'Amour, Anik Jean, Marjo, Andrée Watters and Marie-Hélène Fortin of the group Mes Aïeux revisited the classic songs of the five singers in a special performance marking the 30th anniversary of the 1 fois 5 concert.
  • Eventually, GSI Musique worked for several months on the version of the "Une fois 5" concert recording, releasing a record and video of the concert together with Radio-Québec who owned the rights to the visual aspects of the concert. The release date has been set to June 1, 2010 for the CD/DVD of this legendary concert.
