Eleven of the twenty tracks from the US version of Power House were replaced for it's Canadian counterpart.  Three of those failed to make the Pop Top 40 in the US so the album's K-Tel Scale score suffered a bit.  One of the replacement tracks was a cover verson by Ron Nigrini of Keith Carradine's "I'm Easy" from the movie Nashville, which is on the US version of Power House.  In addition to those two 45s he owns (above) which carried over across the border, HERC owned two 45s that are on the Canadian edition of the album:
