The Stampeders had several hits, but this 1971 tune was their biggest hit by far outside of Canada - or even INSIDE Canada. The Calgary trio - who started as a quintet in the mid-1960 - broke up in the late 1970's, but reformed at the 1992 Calgary Stampede, and has not stopped touring since.
By the way, the Calgary Stampede is something I barely missed in my time in Alberta, and remains on my bucket list. It probably won't happen for me in 2021, but it will sometime soon.
