    This is an extremely rare original Canada-only release from 1979 where only 500 were pressed. It features totally different "early" versions of both tracks. Note that at this early stage, the A side is simply titled "Switchin'" (later to be known as "Switchin' To Glide") and it has a some additional verses that were not included in the widely released 1980 re-recording. According to this site- http://www.mocm.ca/Music/Title.aspx?TitleId=286040 It stated that this was an independent release prior to the band being signed. 500 copies were pressed, most owned by their manager and likely thrown out!
