    A documentary called An Overnight Sensation, (produced and narrated by Rachel Sanders), looks at the remarkable Canadian folk musicians, Fraser And DeBolt. They produced two albums of psychedelic folk in the early 70s. People loved their music — in a cult kind of way — but they never found mainstream success.

    Writer George Shirley described them as “A couple of loopy folkies bayin’ at the moon in a convincingly au naturel manner.” And the music trade mag, The Record, once explained Fraser and DeBolt’s significance like this: “Fraser & DeBolt were the greatest Canadian band never to have made it.”

    But you know, their music is still talked about by folk music aficionados. And having a radio documentary made decades after the duo was active says something, no?
