Pronto Monto is the third album by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, released in 1978.[1] The title is an approximate pronunciation of the French phrase "prends ton manteau", which means "take your coat".

Pronto Monto was produced with a pop polish in order to give it more radio airplay. However, the album did not meet sales expectations, and the sisters were dropped from Warner Bros. Records soon afterward.[citation needed]

For a long time, this was the only McGarrigle sisters album that had never been released on CD, although "NaCl (Sodium Chloride)" and "Pronto Monto (Prends ton manteau)" were available on other albums. In 2016 the album was finally released on CD by Omnivore Recordings.[2]
