The album also features a guest appearance by percussionist Michel Séguin (ex-Toubabou). That same year they played the Montreal International Jazz Festival, which helped to fuel Quebec's local jazz scene for years to come. A second album was recorded in 1982 but was never released, since the first album achieved only limited distribution. One year later, Trudel and Cataford were replaced by Sylvain Gagnon and Michel Grenier on bass and drums respectively. Agharta continued giving performances until 1984.
During this period Agharta also recorded some unreleased material with Séguin, with Mignault and Veniot performing occasionally with the renowned percussionist. Mignault even produced Séguin's solo album "Esprit Des Vents" in 1983. Agharta's LP, along with the unreleased material, has been digitally remastered and may be the subject of a CD reissue in 2005.
