ddw in windsor Songs about Vietnam War (135* d) To Anne re Vietnam songs 02 Mar 99


sorry about the delay, Anne, and about the new thread; I tried to post to the old one when I logged on tonight, but there was no message box at the end of the thread. Is there an automatic cutoff when a lot of info is posted to a thread?

Anyway, the book I was talking about earlier is The Vietnam Songbood, bu Barbara Dane and Irwin Silber. It was published in 1969 by The Guardian, 197 E. 4th St., N.Y., N.Y., 10009 and distributed by Monthly Review Press, 116 West 14th St. N.Y., 10011.

You got such a terrific response to your original thread you may not need this any longer, but I promised it, so I thought I'd send it along.

This book has more than 100 songs, mostly from the U.S., but also from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England and several other countries around the world -- including some from Vietnam itself. The tone and most of the songs are of protest, so you won't find any Barry Sadler tunes, but there are enough light-hearted and/or funny tunes, spoofs, etc. to be able to present the era to today's kids without turning them off because they don't understand. Lord knows, we want them to remember what happened to their dads and moms during that time and especially what happened to people like Big Mick.

Copied to the Vietnam thread which seems to be working OK.
