Calgary Safety Roundup & School Patrol Singers - STOP (1963)

The Calgary Safety Roundup & School Patrol show helped launch Dixie Lee Stone/Innes into showbiz, with her (and a group of fellow safety patrollers) singing country songs backed by Ernie McCulloch and his band. 

This LP was recorded live at the Palliser Hotel - the very boisterous (and precisely-queued) cheering by the children in the audience at the end of each song is charming. Plus, Dixie Lee's take on "Your Cheating Heart" (with a slight typo) is pretty great.

Get it here.
