I Stand Alone

Oh?! Whoa! It's downright criminal that this song wasn't played on the radio at least half as much as Stairway To Heaven or Freebird. Not that there's anything wrong with those great songs. I just can't help but wonder how songs like this ever get overlooked. I mean, c'mon! I thought 'instant classic' the first time I heard it.

I've never heard the song before.

Funny that, being Cherokee, my mom swore that all her kids were Blackfoot, so grimy and dirty were we at the end of a long summer Saturday.

Ha ha! I wonder what Blackfoot moms tell their kids?

"Look! You kids are dirtier than an Elizabeth Warrenkee (dirty white wendigo)."

Irt the song, I know I only heard it a few times and not for decades, until a few days ago when I was checking at youtube to see if there were songs from them I hadn't heard yet.

This is off their first album, No Reservations which is out of print.
The CD is out of print also (sort of. I could only find them for sale from German music stores, which is weird) so a new one costs over 25 bucks.

A used one is over 50 bucks. No one wants to give it up and I can see why. :^)

Now all the original guys are retired and they have a new generation picked out by Ricky Medlocke.
They got a tough act to follow!
