Sidewinder - Throwin Gold (In Calgary) (1981), One Of Those Nights (1981)

We were pleasantly surprised by this single by Calgary's Sidewinder. The A side is less an unabashed tribute to the Stampede city and more a cautionary take of the excesses of blowing your salary on a weekend of fun. Which is something the 20-something-year-old version of Gene Poole knows a LOT about.

As a bonus, we've packaged this up with a second Sidewider single. These are both pretty good country boogie records - we can totally see why they would have been a popular bar band around town in the early 80's. 

Get it here!
