SONG OF THE DAY Don Curtis – Man of Dakota

I’ve just caught this song on a radio show, but there was no track listing so I’ve been trying to work out what is was by the lyrics..I’m not even going to tell you how I translated the line ‘Man of Dakota’’s a wonder, but I got there in the end!

Curt Nordlander, a.k.a Don Curtis, was a Swedish musician and artist also known as the the white Indian because of his lifelong interest in Indian culture.  Using his acquired knowledge in this field, this topic was often the subject of his lyrics and today’s song is one of those examples.. Many years later Curtis even set up an Indian camp in Sälen that he and friends had stated 1998!

Man of Dakota was released in 1970 via his own GP label…it’s a quirky, catchy little number! Check it out above..
