"Next Stop Is Vietnam" has all the Vietnam-related songs everybody remembers, ["Where Have All the Flowers Gone", "Ballad of the Green Berets"] plus many that you never heard and may wonder why. It runs the gamut from gungo-ho "pro-war" songs to the sad ballads of soldiers who don't or didn't want to go to war. A big plus is the final CD which has the lyrics to all the songs. The book accompanying gives a lot of information for every song.

I've met so many wonderful people through the years, I've discovered so much brilliant music from them as well, but what's been most touching is how generous so many of our members have been to me ... and to that, I'm speaking of this monumental boxed set of songs that goes beyond being an amazing soundtrack to a war that effected the lives every person living in America during the 60's and early 70's, by one of my dearest friends Wolfram.

As I said, the music goes far beyond merely being a soundtrack, these are the songs, and these are the words that flashed across our television screens, and out of our radios, songs that were often overlooked, and songs that have been nearly forgotten; gathered together here by Bear Family Records, out of Germany. This has to be hands down, the finest collection of music I've ever come across ... and I doubt it will ever be bested, even by Bear Family, a label known for it's stunning boxed sets that have chronicled the recording careers of rockabilly and country artists alike. Dig this! There are 13 discs of music, averaging about twenty five songs per disc, there is a fourteenth disc that contains all of the lyrics for the songs housed here, all presented in a carefully crafted double gatefold, and if that weren't enough, there's a 304, that's right, a three hundred and four page hard cover book on both the War at home, and the one that raged in the highlands, swamps, jungles, and cities of Vietnam, and its neighboring countries ... with the book's forward by Joe McDonald, of Country Joe & The Fish, a Veteran, artist, and political activist. Each disc encapsulates a different musical time period, ranging from folk to pop, and rock.

Purchased initially as I lived through the era, didn't get called up but would have gone if I had, and this was the music of the time, even here in Australia we heard a lot of this music.
Such a wide variety of music, the news clips are relevant (not so much in Australia but we did get most of them anyway) and the balance between pro and anti involvement songs is well done. Audio quality is excellent given the variety of sources. Book - such a great job of research on each of the performers, lots of detail of the release and their short history. BRILLIANT.
Gets my highest recommendation.

Where's one of the greatest songs about Vietnam, ever, "I Can't Write Left Handed" by Bill Withers? Major oversight! Maybe they couldn't get copywrite permission; perhaps Creedence and The Animals didn't give permission either, as their great songs here are covers by Paul Revere

IT HAS SOME REAL GREAT PIEACES OF HISTORY AND i learned a vast amount from a 30 year old guy that never knew his father and that was a vietnam vet. It meant alot and taught me how big a issue this war really was on both side.
