Susan Smith - Coming Home To Alberta (1979), Just For The Night (1979)

Up next on our tour of Alberta-themed singles is a track (and a bonus single) from Susan Smith - who we can't find anything about. These are a pair of Doug Wong-produced singles, and they're a bit of a mix of styles. "Coming Home To Alberta" lands somewhere between AOR and country, while the B side of the second single, "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" has tinges of 70's funk-pop. As an aside, we're really not sure why that second single is only 50% MAPL - the label has an address in Calgary, so surely should count? 

Our apologies for the audio quality on "Coming Home To Alberta" - our copy of that single was found sandwiched between two pieces of sandpaper. Or at least sounds like it. But you can still get it here.
