Hagood Hardy - Anthem for Canada/A Salute to Alberta's 75th Anniversary (1980)

Continuing the trend of non-Albertans "celebrating" Alberta (or maybe just cashing in on our history?), here's a pair of 7" records from composer Hagood Hardy that appear to have been commissioned by TransCanada Pipelines as part of the province's big 75th anniversary celebrations. The first two sides are a celebration of Canada, which is a bit weird. BUT the Alberta-themed compositions are big, bombastic slices of orchestral pop.
