The Stampeders are a 70’s group from Calgary that had a string of hits during this period.  This is a live version of the song.  Ah, memories.  The radio played the crap out of this song in Canada.

  1. Nice set. I’d have commented earlier, but it took me all this time to decide whether or not to play Celine. In the end, I did.
    For 6 whole seconds!
    Rest of the set was good though, love that you’re crossing genres!
