When Ian wrote "Four Strong Winds" in our manager's apartment up in New
York City, there was a reference to Alberta, which happens to be a province
Our manager, Albert Grossman, laughed and said most Americans probably never
heard of Alberta.
So when Ian & I would introduce the song Nova Scotia Farewell" to American audiences,
we told them Nova Scotia was a Canadian province.
I remember some smart aleck screaming out: "WHAT'S A PROVINCE" ???
