"...the call is not a mooing. Give it a lot of life, as you are not imitating a simple sound--you are speaking the language of a living animal."
French-Canadian leading man Guy Provost started his career as a member of the distinguished theatre troup "Les Compagnons de St-Laurent." In the 1950s he was was toasted from Ottawa to Kamloop as a consummate thespian in theatre, TV and movies. By 1970 he was grinding out moose calling records.
The Moose Calling Record genre attracts a special breed of record collector: cheapskates. I picked this baby up a few record fairs ago and have regretted it ever since. For this, the Louie Louie of Moose Calling Records, Provost leans into his urgent spiel with only the ruthless vigor that one can muster while accompanied by sound effects of a female moose urinating in a lake.
