Tom Northcott - Alberta/Under The Sun (1971)


Here's another weird Alberta record - it looks like it was a promo piece to tie into a promo video for Alberta tourism (or something?). That Alberta logo kind of freaks us out - it's just close/far enough from the iconic 70's logo of the province to make us think something's askew with this.

What's also askew with this is that the songs are by Vancouver folk-rock icon Tom Nortcott. While they're a reasonable celebration, we wonder why they couldn't have found an Albertan for this job. Sheesh.

Anyways, you can snag it here
