Evel Knievel Tribute

Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel, Jr. (October 17, 1938November 30, 2007) was a childhood idol of mine, which I can blame several stupid things on I attempted as a child (like riding my bike off the top of my parents' garage into a mattress, amongst other things). Sadly, my copy of the Evel Knievel Speaks to The Kids (1974) album is stored away somewhere in the limbo that I now call my home, so instead of sharing that (hopefully I can get around to doing that in the near future), all I can do is share a few samples of it, and a few other Evel Knievel related tunes, as well as the above pic of the autographed Sports Illustrated I scored from eBay a few years back (curse you, eBay!!!). Here' to the last of the great daredevils, folks...

Track Listing:
1-Evel Knievel-Why
2-John Culliton Mahoney-Ballad Of Evel Knievel
3-Hub Reynolds-Ballad Of Evel Knievel

The Ballad of Evil actually made me a little teary-eyed. R.I.P. Kneivel!
