This very unique tribute to the great Chief Crazy Horse and his tribe won the New Zealand "Album of the Year Award" in 1974.

"It's said that Crazy Horse had the powers to dream himself into the real world... and leave the illusion behind."

"I have dreamed the vision of the horse that dances wild, I have seen the land of the Great Beyond, I am one with this Earth as a little child, Let my eternal life shine on"
- J.D. Blackfoot

'The Song of Crazy Horse' is a tribute to Chief Crazy Horse and his tribe.

The opening lines to "The Song of Crazy Horse" were written in 1968. J.D. Blackfoot had a dream where he was watching a battle between Custer and a tribe of Indians. After awakening early in the morning, he wrote the introduction to the song. He finished writing the remainder of the song three years later in 1971. This same dream also inspired him to legally change his name to J.D. Blackfoot in 1970.

After recording and releasing 'The Ultimate Prophecy', J.D. experienced some problems with his record company and he decided to take a break from recording for a while. His wife was a native of New Zealand and suggested they go there. While there, J.D. Blackfoot assembled a band and recorded 'The Song of Crazy Horse'. This album won the "New Zealand Album of the Year" Award for 1974.
