Ray Griff - Calgary, Calgary/That Old Montana Moon (1987)

We're going to bet the A side of this slab of vinyl was part of the Song for Calgary competition. Ray Griff was a legendary songwriter and singer, and the two sides of this single certainly show his range. The B side is a pretty standard country number but the A side... well, you know the classic "New York, New York?" "Calgary, Calgary" is Griff's lounge-y homage to that tune AND to our fair city. It's kind of a weird tune, and there probably weren't many Song for Calgary entries like it.
