Product Description:

This 20-track companion disc to the Ken Burns' PBS documentary The War provides a brief glimpse into the swing and pop music synonymous with World War II. Attempting to choose 20 songs for a single disc that are beloved by those who lived through that era, while also trying to sustain the curiosity of those who didn't, is a lofty goal. As it turns out, Burns and the producers pieced together an impeccable track listing that covers the full range of emotions withstood by a generation during wartime, from the upbeat and optimistic swing performances of "Little Brown Jug" (Glenn Miller), and "Pennies from Heaven" (Earl Hines Orchestra with Billie Holiday), to the melancholy romanticism of "Memories of You" (Louis Armstrong), "Let's Get Lost" (Frank Sinatra), and "Sentimental Journey" (Les Brown). The liner notes are informative as every title on the soundtrack was chosen by Burns and co-producer Lynn Novick. The interested listener should also investigate two other individual CDs coinciding with this series: I'm Beginning to See the Light: Dance Hits from the Second World War and Songs Without Words: Classical Music from the War. ~ Al Campbell
