An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring The Young Canada Singers single from 1967, ‘Canada’. Released on the Quality record label, this vinyl record has been reworked into the shape of the Canadian Maple leaf.

‘Canada’ (also known “The Centennial Song”, French version “Une chanson du centenaire”) was written by Bobby Gimby in 1967 to celebrate Canada’s centennial and Expo 67, and was commissioned by the Centennial Commission (a special Federal Government agency). The song was written in both of Canada’s official languages, English and French. The song’s recording was performed by the Young Canada Singers, two groups of children — one that sang the French lyrics, and another that sang in English. The musical score was composed by Ben McPeek. The single was the most successful single in Canada in 1967, selling a then unprecedented 270,000 copies.
