American musician / singer / songwriter, J. D. Blackfoot met and married a girl from New Zealand, so he and his bride traveled there in 1972. They expected to stay for a month, but were there for a better part of a year and a half. While in NZ, he got a job as a promotion manager for Pye Records, finished writing ‘The Song of Crazy Horse’ and recorded the album for Pye. When he returned to the States in 1974, he signed with Fantasy Records, which then assumed the world rights for ‘The Song of Crazy Horse’, with the exception of New Zealand. The album was released in New Zealand a month after his departure, where it became the “Album of the Year”. It wasn’t until 1975, when he was already recording ‘Southbound and Gone’ for Fantasy that he discovered that he had received the award!
