CD D 688

COUNTRY MUSIC GOES TO WAR -Various Artists. BACM CD 688


Timely, although already in preparation before the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine, we have compiled 24 war-related recordings many from Country Music’s top names in the WWI and post-war era - including Gene Autry, Merle Travis and Elton Britt. To quote from Paul Hazell’s liner notes “A wonderful selection of tracks from various sub-genres of country music, together encapsulating many facets of war – both in the field of battle and back home – the tragedy and loss alongside courage and striving for survival and many moments of humour”. Thanks are due to John Cowling for the concept and for providing several of the tracks.
