Seth Riggs - Shoot For the Stars (1969)


We had to steal the cover art for this next Stampede single from the internet, since our copy - while in good playing condition - lacks the important bio of the singer that these purloined images provide.

Riggs later became a vocal coach to the stars, but in the late 60's was the headliner at the Stampede's grandstand show. We assume this is a commemorative record of said shows, with one side featuring the pomp and flair of "Something to Sing About" and the other featuring the Wilf Carter-penned "C-A-L-G-A-R-Y Heart of the Golden West" - the songs themselves are kind of an odd mix, but Riggs' powerful voice is the glue that holds this together. 

Get it here!
