5.0 out of 5 stars America, Why I Love Her September 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
My late father, John Mitchum wrote nine of the ten poems on this wonderful CD.He was nominated for a Grammy in 1973 when the album first was released.
John Mitchum was able to hear about the strong response to the re-release of the CD November of 2001 before his passing. Both of the "John's" were heartfelt patriots with a deep love for our country.
The title poem, America,Why I Love Her has been used in opening
ceremonies for rodeos, state fairs, NASCAR events, as well as military and private meetings.
With the wave of patriotism that has taken over the country, a campaign has begun to have the timeless piece of America, Why I Love become our National Poem.
I was told after the awful days of 9-11 that the words on this CD were the healing balm for our country.
Bless all of you who listen to and appreciate John Wayne's interpretation of my father's thoughts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Plain-Spoken Truths October 10, 2001
Verified Purchase
There is something reassuring about hearing John Wayne speak the words of Robert Mitchum's younger brother John. The sentiments are simple, yet honestly spoken and obviously from the heart. The familiar and unique cadence of Wayne's voice is as American as a Frederick Remington painting. I first owned this album on cassette in the early 1980's and to find it finally issued on CD during our hour of crisis has been a god-send. I did not always agree with Wayne politically, but this statement of human values will remain a cherished keepsake.

5.0 out of 5 stars America, Why I Love Her - John Wayne September 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
How can you not love American poetry recorded by that distinctive voice of the Duke, one of the greatest and most patriotic Americans to ever live?! Sure, the poetry isn't the best, perhaps even corny at times. Certainly you can hear his age and declining health in his voice, but it's still the Duke!

I love this CD and it is now one of my favorites, just as his movies are among my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Mitchum - author of "America Why I Love Her" September 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
John Mitchum was a prolific poet as well as an actor and story teller. From the moment I met him, he seemed to tenaciously cling to his one favorite poem, "America, Why I Love Her", though he wrote many others as well or better.
With his brother, Robert, he once traveled across America as a hobo and got to see America where most Americans have never dreamed of going. It is through this poem that he shares with us his vision of America.
What could be better than to have his pictographic and historic words blend with the voice of John Wayne to give America a heritage so rich in culture and diversified in truths.
God bless John Wayne for lending his voice and talents to record this wonderful message. God bless John Mitchum for writing the words for Americans to have forever.
God bless America!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful album by John Wayne and a best seller as well February 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Marion Morrison, a.k.a. John Wayne, recorded this wonderful album that peaked at #66 on the Billboard album chart and stayed on the charts for 16 weeks when it was released on RCA LSP-4828 in 1973 during the height of Watergate and the final days of the Vietnam war. This album has 10 wonderful poems written by John Mitchum including the title track and 9 other classics including Why Are You Marching Son? which is another standout track in this classic heartfelt album. When it was released there was a tie-in book available but as of this writing, the book is out of print, but you can find a used copy available on the Internet if you are lucky to look at the Auctions and zShops available here, and also at Advanced Book Exchange and eBay or wait until the book is reissued, if it will be reissued. If you are an American Patriot, a collector, a film buff, a poetry fan, or a John Wayne fan, this is a must have for your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Spangled Awesome August 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Thoughtful and inspiring. A reminder of a time when it was cool to be proud of one's country. A reflection of the idea that our country was made great by people taking pride in the great democratic process-a land of the people, by the people, and for the people.

5.0 out of 5 stars America, Why I Love Her December 4, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In typical John Wayne style, he talks of all the pride and reasons he loves America. We owned this album on original 8 track tape and are estatic that it was re-released. Especially in these times, this CD will touch the hearts of many Americans. No one with even a little pride in this great nation will come away with less than goose bumps and a sense of oneness. A great album then and NOW>

5.0 out of 5 stars John Wayne! What can I say? May 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title cut on this album is worth every penny you pay. There was no one like John Wayne. He was a man who loved his country and was not shy about saying so. He says what he thinks and this album refects his feelings. Just listen to his voice and you can hear how he feels.

What a great nation we would have, if we all shared the responsability. But it's so wonderful to remember the time when most people did.
