About forty years ago someone lent me a cassette tape of a fairly
big-name mainstream singer like Tony Bennett or Frankie Laine that
had, of all things, a version of North to Alaska on it. It was a
fairly lively version of the song but what I particularly remember is
that the hero was NOT Sam McCord but a *Polish* name, such as Sam
Kowalksi! Very strange. I've just downloaded the Frankie Laine version
of the song from one of the Newsgroups and I thought that this would
be the one but it isn't -- Frankie is singing about Sam McCord. I've
just spent a certain amount of time with Google and Bing and I can't
track this down. Can anyone here give me the name of that artist?

Many thanks!

Hi Bob, a quick search of Napster revealed Johnny Horton.
Sounds like the song from the movie of the same name a fun little
movie, by the way).

I swear to God, some people either can't read or don't bother to read the
whole message before relpying to it. It's pretty obvious from the original
message from Bob that he is not looking for Johhny Horton's version of the
song but rather a parody/cover of the song.

Thanks, Stoney, but the Horton version is the famous one that
*everyone* knows -- I was (and still am) looking for this obscure one
that I heard around 1969, although it had been recorded earlier....

Bob,

I took at look at CMT.com and found that "North to Alaska" was written
by Michael Phillips and is published by EMI.

Searching at emimusicpub.com yields the following results:

Hi Nelson,

Thanks for all of the info!

I can pin down the exact time that I listened to the song on a
borrowed cassette tape as being 1970 or 1971. It was on, I'm pretty
certain, some sort of commercial comp. tape, such as "Great American
Singers and Their Favorite Songs" or something of the like.

The only name that really rings a bell with me is Frankie Laine and he
did indeed do an album of western songs called, I think, Rawhide. One
of the other newsgroups had all of these songs on it a few weeks ago
and I downloaded them. I've listened to "North to Alaska" several
times and I'm absolutely certain, however, that he's singing "Sam
McCord was a mighty man".

It could be, however, that at some point back in the late 60s or early
70s he recorded *another* version, maybe as a tribute to the Polish
folks living in Chicago or some such, and that this is the one that
ended up on the tape I listened to. It's not common, of course, but
various artists *do* record slightly different versions of their songs
from time to time.

Thanks again,

Bob

Hi Bob:
I can eliminate everyone on that list with the exception of "Connie And
Babe" and "NRBQ". I don't know about them but all of the others recorded
the original version. Except "Johnnie Allan". He sang a cajun version called
"South To Louisiana". "NRBQ" also did a parody but I don't know the lyrics.
That list is far from complete. "North To Alaska" has been recorded more
times than "The King" has had birthdays!! LOL For example: It was recorded
by Claude King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hank Williams Jr, Johnny Cash, Rose
Maddox, Rita MacNeil, S. R. Smith, to name a few.
There have been a lot of parodies of the song as well. "Airfarcewon" sang
"North Thru The Ass'ka (Colonoscopy Blues)" and "West In Nebraska"
Rich Verdugo sang "She's From Alaska" about Sara Palin.
BTW, I have seen at least 4 differnet writers attributed to the song: Mike
Phillips, Johnny Horton, Tillman Franks and Peter de Angelis!

Take Care

Nope. Not Jerry Lee Lewis. At least not the version I have. It's a duet with

About forty years ago someone lent me a cassette tape of a fairly
big-name mainstream singer like Tony Bennett or Frankie Laine that
had, of all things, a version of North to Alaska on it. It was a
fairly lively version of the song but what I particularly remember is
that the hero was NOT Sam McCord but a *Polish* name, such as Sam
Kowalksi! Very strange. I've just downloaded the Frankie Laine version
of the song from one of the Newsgroups and I thought that this would
be the one but it isn't -- Frankie is singing about Sam McCord. I've
just spent a certain amount of time with Google and Bing and I can't
track this down.  Can anyone here give me the name of that artist?
Many thanks!

Bob, Kinda late but there is a cover to "North to Alaska" tha I did for Sarah Paylin during the 2008 election. It is titled "She's From Alaska". Write for more infor .
