Calgary Exhibition & Stampede ‎– The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth (1981)

The challenge with finding singles that don't have picture sleeves is that something you end up with a record like this one, which completely confounds. This record is subtitled "Soundtrack to the Multi-Image Presentation," which makes us think that it was either a promo for the Stampede OR a giveaway at the event. Side one of this is a bombastic number, reminiscent of a musical number at the Grandstand Show with a brief vocal hurrah for the Stampede, while side B is a short, romantic soft-rocker. We really wish we had cover art for this - maybe you can hook us up?

In the meantime, we'll just give you the download.
