A compilation of Zachary Richard's early European and Canadian hits, Migration is an often overlooked piece of work in his repertoire, and it is a puzzle as to why. Maybe because it is entirely sung in French and not English, but whatever the reason for the puzzle, it is an album that should be sought out. This is one of his finest pieces of work in many ways.
