In the "3 of a Kind" vein: Why not one with Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Guess Who and Burton Cummings. Most of the songs are already on different discs in your catalog, so it would be an excellent compilation! The link is easy to find: Cummings was also a member of Guess Who, and Randy Bachman a member of both Guess Who and BTO. (Lots of hits right there)
Guess Who: American Woman These Eyes No Time No Sugar Tonight Laughing BTO : You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet Taking Care Of Business Hey You Roll On Down The Highway Let It Ride Cummings : Stand Tall Break It To Them Gently I'm Scared Take One Away Dream Of A Child
I'd rather see a Guess Who vs. BTO disc myself. More chance of having songs I can actually sing. Cummings' solo stuff is a little harder to me. But any Canadian stuff is fine by me too, and I'd likely buy the above suggested 3 of a kind just to show support for getting more Canadian music out there.
Also, since this isn't direct competition for Sound Choice, I thought I'd mention this here. I had said on a different thread a couple weeks ago that Singer's Choice in Toronto (the main CDN karaoke distributor, who also deals SC) was starting a line of Canadian discs, with Stompin Tom Connors being the first one available this coming week. I was talking to them last week, and they said that they plan to follow with Trooper shortly after Christmas, then try to get discs by Tragically Hip, Great Big Sea, and Blue Rodeo out next year as well, assuming it's a worthwhile venture for them. After that, they'll be open to suggestions. So, if anyone is interested in getting some Canadian karaoke, their website is singerschoice.ca or talk to your local retailer.
