The Stampeders were always an underrated band that never got their due. Though some they judge the solely on their slightly dated sole American hit "Sweet City Woman," The Stampeders are much more than this. They were a darn good rock group who were monstrous in Canada, capable of hard rock (Devil You), ballads (Carry Me), and even serious statements (The Came The White Man), without ever sounding cheesy or corny, besides the bubblegum pop of "Monday Morning Choo Choo", whos name says it all ;). So if you think this album is 22 old rehashes of SCW, you are sadly mistaken. If you do make the leap for a purchase, you will find they were a tight rock outfit who were much better than that. I now intend on getting the full albums. Goodbye.

How The Stampeders always seem to slip through the cracks as one of the greatest Canadian bands from the late 60s, and early 70s is a mystery. They were one of the pioneers in the Canadian music industry. There were very few other bands from Canada in the early going. These guys dared to be different. Not strictly a rock act, and not strictly a country act, they were country-rock at a time when none existed. The Stampeders were waaayy ahead of their time.

Highly underrated Canadian Band, but I found the entire CD a good addition to my collection of CDs. I enjoyed all of the songs on this album. It takes you back to the early 70s and you realize just how great our Canadian bands and music were and still are.
