The Wild Goose

I encounter them frequently on my runs through the Palo Alto Baylands. Well, to be honest, these ones seem more tame than wild. But at any rate they have inspired some very fine songs...

Here's the extraordinary voice of Louis Killen singing the old shanty... more about sailin' ships and pretty girls than waterfowl, I suppose...

And here's the somewhat less than extraordinary voice of Peter Stampfel singing his heart out on the 1950s hit, "Cry of the Wild Goose." Go to his web site and buy all his music!
