Saint Dennis of Assisi
:: Dennis Weaver - Ode To A Critter ::
I don't think I've ever purchased an album in more pristine condition than this here Dennis Weaver slab. Not only was it sealed, but it looked as if it had come out last week. It's almost as if... it had been passed on as a purchase-worthy item for over 20 years.
I don't know what to tell you about Mr. Weaver, as he's already plenty famous. He had a very nice run in westerns like Gunsmoke and on his own series, McCloud. In fact the album cover shows Dennis all dressed up in his McCloud costume. To show that he had some range, he even did a movie called "Cocaine: One Man's Addiction", and yes, he was the one man. He's still acting to this day, kicking it on the ABC Family equine drama, Wildfire. Off camera, he's a nature lover whose New Mexico abode is made almost completely of recycled materials. This tune is about the plight of our animal compadres, and how we are hurting them with all our nasty trash and pollution. But don't worry, it's a happy little ditty, not likely to trigger a tither from your inner Iron Eyes Cody.
