Wayne Vold - Calgary Stampede Star/Point Of No Return (1976)

Here's another smiling face that we've seen recently as we've been trawling through 7" singles... we left this Wayne Vold record aside in a rare moment of foresight, thinking it would be best to include in our Stampede week celebrations.

This is a great, polished record - thanks to Richard Harrow's Living Room Studio. While yesterday's track from Cal Cavendish celebrated the Stampede from the perspective of Joe Public, Vold's background as a rancher has him singing about the rodeo: "Open the chute and let her rip / Try to stay on top of it / Ride on cowboy, let it buck / At the Calgary Stampede."
