Saturday Single 669

I missed putting up a Saturday Single the other week. We were a little busy around here, and I was lagging behind because of a cold. Legitimate reasons, both, but I don’t like leaving this space blank on a Saturday. I would guess that’s happened less than ten times since this blog began in late January 2007.

So I’m here mostly to fill space today. I’m still fighting the cold, which is morphing into one of my frequent sinus infections. And my attention is at least partly on a football game between North Dakota State University and Illinois State, a national quarterfinal game. (My affection for NDSU’s Bison is one of the remnants of my two-year stay in Minot, North Dakota, in the late 1980s.)

So here, by default, is a track titled “Dakota” by the band Swampwater. (It’s a song about a dancing bear named Dakota instead of about North Dakota or South Dakota, but never mind.) It’s from the group’s 1971 self-titled album, and it’s today’s Saturday Single.

    Just some “dittos” on recent posts. The music of 1969-70 probably my favorite years. I was in the Army
    at the time breaking up some years as a radio DJ, but the music of the time still tops my list . Holly Holy
    also one of my favorite Neil Diamond songs along with the Taproot Manuscript album.
    I also watched most of the North Dakota State game on Saturday ( even though I’m in Pennsylvania ).
    They are and have been a very impressive football team !
    Thanks for all your writings !! EITW is right at the top of my weekly reading. Merry Christmas and
    Happy New Year.
