R. Harlan Smith & The Royalty Singers - Go, Go Calgary/Fan The Flames (1981)

The newscaster tells us that it's almost hockey time again, which means it's a good time to post this record from R. Harlan Smith, the founder of Edmonton's Royalty Records. What's amazing about this record's two sides is they basically the same song - we're pretty sure that's the same bed track, just with different vocals, each track celebrating the Calgary Flames (although the B side is, despite the title, slightly more generic). 

We have a very important question about this, though - noting that Smith put out a single in the same year titled "Go Gretzky Go," did they manage to recycle the same music and bed track for FOUR songs? 

You can hear at least half of them here!
