I've been collecting all sorts of old stuff lately, including cowboy tunes. Lots of retro-lounge, swing, latin dance, etc. Stuff I would have laughed at as a teen. Oddly soothing nowadays. But I still have my rowdy moments.

High Noon is a great song from a great movie.  I love the song and High Noon is one of my favorite movies.


High Noon Intro


Ballad "High Noon" written by Dimitri Tiomkin, lyrics by Ned Washington and sung by Tex Ritter













The director, Fred Zinnemann, and screen writer, Carl Foreman, made a strong allegorical political statement against McCarthyism with this movie.

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 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!

She's a fine singer, and a fun actor in those 60's screwball romantic comedies.

Here's an oblique connection to a Beatle...

Paul interviews Doris

And now...
