"Injun Jim Blues" by Bill Reiter

A radio site without audio is like a TV station with no pictures.

Just wanted to let you know that the long awaited video (by me ! !) cuz I told you that McKeachie told me at least twenty-eight different times that he was gonna get a BCTV film crew to do one . . .
The long awaited "INJUN' JIM [no "s"] BLUES" video . . . has just been posted to
http://www.youtube.com/user/BillReiter
and
I am very happy with it.

And - please send it on to whomever you think would appreciate it.
It is very powerful, that song, and if you know the story, even more so.

I am not usually a fan of Wikipedia . . . BUT for sure ! - this WAS a VERY informative 'sheet' of information on the man.

Snowing still ?
What we despair, is the fleeting life of sakura.
Oh, I mean . . . cherry blossoms.
You know. Those flowers that come around July 29th in Admunchuk.
Ha Ha Ho Ho Heh Heh Ho Ho Ha Ha . . .

And to all Vancouverites - because of that bit of very, very bad Lotus Land badness - - - get ready for the BIG ONE ! ! !

JON
Thank you for the Wikipedia hint - I have added the URL to the "Injun' Jim" post.

Cool song, deserves a little attention I think. The link of course to Mr Reiter's Youtube page gives us some of that wonderful stuff I loved back in the day like Bundolo and the Sasquatch commercials :occasion5:

Cheers!

Speaking of memories, even after all these years the Vic Vaseline version of "I come to bury Caesar.." still creeps into my head where it lodges itself for a couple hours.

In case you were looking for Injun Jim ...
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
