Billboard Top 40 Hits 1971: #157: ‘Sweet City Woman’- Stampeders. August 14, 1971.

  • Single: ‘Sweet City Woman’- The Stampeders
  • Record Company- Bell
  • Genre: Rock

  • Time: 3:27

  • Album-Against The Grain

The Stampeders- a pop-rock trio from Calgary, Alberta, Canada- had 3 Hot 100 singles from 1971-76. This was their first and biggest hit- they avoid being a one-hit wonder- as far as the Top 40 goes- due to a #40 hit in 1976 ‘Hit The Road Jack’- which featured a telephone conversation with the legendary Wolfman Jack. ‘Sweet City Woman’- seems to be a song I hear maybe once every five years- and have always enjoyed it. Love the banjo featured in the song.
