MichaelNot really relevant to this post, but thought this story and photograph might interest you:http://www.ausbcomp.com/~bbott/cars/1905Loco/index.htmlWas looking for info on this song, when I discovered it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSveqeRha_A
Elmer, thank you for this. That webpage is fascinating. Poor Geronimo - and poor buffalo. As for Hoyt Axton, I like some of his work very much: including his great track 'Evangelina' and his cover of 'Lay Lady Lay', both on the excellent 1976 album "Fearless". Yet in the case of 'Geronimo's Cadillac', your YouTube link led me to the original version, by Michael Murphey, and I preferred it. It's at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiTYf8iJC84
MichaelThanks for that & happy new year.Hadn't heard the original version, which I have just listened to & thought was excellent.First heard 'Geronimo's Cadillac' in Dick Gaughan's version - have also seen him sing it a few times in concert and have always thought it a fine, craftily sardonic song...As for Hoyt Axton, have only recently discovered his work through a compilation cd (The A & M years) which i picked up by chance. Have been enjoying it a great deal & along with Johnny Duhan's 'To the Light' it has helped me recover from my post-Tempest disillusionment...
