Hello Goodbye:
When I was a kid, my parents bought me The Ballad Of Davy Crockett...several times.  I was constantly breaking the record.

A few years ago, I found an original copy of the record from 1955.  I haven't broken it yet!    ;D

Fess Parker- Ballad Of Davy Crockett (78 RPM) 

Holy crap. I used to love Daniel Boone. My mum bought me a (fake) coonskin Davy Crockett hat which I used to wear constantly. And I swear just last week I was trying to get the young uns at work to sing the theme tune (which is emblazoned on my mind)
It was things like this that made me fall in love with Americana as a kid, a passion I still have, but hopefully now a little more subjective. Old square jawed DB is a very Disney version of history (the same history that made Tonto the Lone rangers sidekick) but lord I wanted to be that mn.
Altogether now "Daniel Boone was a man, yes a big man..."
Actually, thinking now I,m not sure if I distinguished between Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone

I loved Davy Crocket when I was a kid and proudly wore my DC hat, I'll dig out a pic of me wearing it

Hello Goodbye:
I still have my Davy Crockett hat!

Back in the 50s, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and Daniel Boone were the TV and movie frontier heros that kids wanted to be just like.  It was a riot seeing hundreds of kids running around wearing coonskin caps.  Walt Disney made a fortune with that fad.



Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier - Part 1


Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew ev'ry tree,
Kil't him a b'ar when he was only three.
Davy...Davy Crockett, King Of The Wild Frontier!

I used to have a bunch of those book and record sets for superheros when I was young. I miss those.
