The Toad
20th Jul 2010
 Quirky Country & Irish, with its tongue firmly in its cheek. The story of a man in the Wild West who kept getting into trouble with the Indians and was repeatedly rescued by a bunch of heroes including Hopalong Cassidy, Maverick, and Billy the Kid. Eventually he made his peace with the Indians, and was offered the choice of a squaw; and then along came Hopalong Cassidy, Maverick, and the rest of them. All right, so I'm easily pleased, but it never fails to make me smile. The trumpet in the backing, used for cavalry charges and - at the end - a horse's neigh, is a nice touch. The Ohio Express recorded a song of the same name; I haven't heard it but I presume it's an earlier version. 'B' is a pleasant C&I waltz.
