Artist: Jorgen Ingmann
[ listen ]
Somehow it seems a tad less offensive when a Scandinavian person dresses up like a "ferocious-looking" Native American chief than when folks here in the USA do it. Jørgen Ingmann took the title track of his 1961 "Apache" LP all the way to #2 on the American charts, and "Pepe," which perpetuates an entirely different set of ethnic stereotypes, peaked at #15 on the singles charts in Germany. You can read more about the life and career of guitar virtuoso Mr. Ingmann, who'll be celebrating his 87th birthday next month, on Wikipedia here.
