CC - Summer In Saskatchewan b/w Morning Rap Song

"Summer In Saskatchewan" b/w "Morning Rap Song"
(Z99 WRC3-5335)

Not much to say about this one, but in the interest of preserving history, here it is. 

"Summer In Saskatchewan" is little more than a rather specific rant set to music, though the female backing vocals, the arena rock guitar, and some bizarre panning of wordless vocals offer a tiny bit of respite. "Morning Rap Song" is CC in "Run DM CC" mode and would be even more unbearable than Side A if it weren't half as long. But if you can hang in for two minutes, you'll hear the single's most ridiculous ten seconds, which is really saying something. 

Released by Z99, I can only presume CC or co-writer/producer Dave Lloyd worked for the Regina radio station. 

All in all, a great example of why I'm hesitant to steer this ship into the 1980s. 


  1. I remember Z99 played the rap tune constantly that summer... The funniest thing about it is it's just a looped chunk of Kool Moe Dee's "Go See The Doctor". You can even hear the "Skeezer" in the background.

  2. The blog is great. Basically love the way how all the composed function has been put.
