J.D. Blackfoot | Footprints | Album Information
Footprints is a two-CD set that was released in 1998 and consists of songs that had never appeared in an album or CD, or had never previously been released.
It also contains 5 songs from an album titled “Southbound and Gone” which was released on the Fantasy label in 1975 but was never re-issued on CD.
“Southbound and Gone” received spotlight picks in Billboard, Cashbox, and Record World magazines and listed as 4 stars in Billboard’s album catalogue. Also in this collection is ” Who’s Nuts Alfred,” a 45 released in 1969 on the Phillips label that was #1 in Columbus,OH for 8 straight weeks.
The song failed to break nationally as radio stations thought that it carried a drug message and were afraid to give it air time. The song carried no drug message but was rather a message of truthfulness needed between children and parents.
