Evelyn Shursen - Stettler Anniversary Song/Here's To Alberta (1980)

Aha! An anniversary single that isn't country music! It's... easy listening? Choral? Evelyn Shursen's voice is near operatic on this, while songwriter and accompanist Elaine Hennel's piano and organ stylings on this ode to Stettler sound not unlike, well, our grade school music teacher. It's weird to think of this coming out in 1980 - it sounds like it came out of the 1940's.

But then, we've never been in step with the times.
