Boomkat Product Review:
Another fantastic release on the evergreen Tompkins Square imprint, this compilation presents a selection of American wartime songs recorded from the 1920s right up to the outbreak of the Second World War. A portion of all proceeds from the album will be donated to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Of America (IAVA.org). "This newly minted collection presents performances captured between 1924 and 1939 of songs originating from the American Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and the "war to end all wars," the First World War. These recordings were the folk foundation both of the common soldier's perspective of the battlefield and of the family and loved ones that were left behind. Bloody War recreates the musical panorama of the early 20th century with songs of warfare that are humorous and tragic, sardonic and vivid. Many of these songs have not been heard since they were originally issued in the 1920s and 1930s and are as relevant today as they were when they were first composed."
