this 24 track cd portrays a decade of black america's war in vietnam from the fear and optimism of conscription to the depression of a return to unspoken prejudice unemployment and a life (and death) of drug abuse for many black american vets. presented as a musical chronology the cd effectively lays this'story' out as it might have happened for any one black family in the vietnam decade. features edwin starr curtis mayfield william bell and the o'jays; the gorgeous harmonies of the players and the whispers; the emotive deep soul of james carr and zerben r. hicks and a special mention in despatches to the revered northern soul favorite from the brilliant korners.
