 Notes & Reviews
 
Bear Family once again presents an entire college course masquerading as a boxed set with Next Stop Vietnam, the German label's look at the Vietnam conflict's impact on American society, an impact that reverberates to this day. Ranging from topical songs of the day to key sections of speeches addressing the war to latter-day reflections on it's fallout, this monumental, 13-CD set includes a full 334 tracks plus a 400-page hardcover book that includes an essay on the war by Lois T. Vietri, an oral history by Doug Bradley and Craig Warner, artist profiles, photos, lyrics and much more. Among the audio nuggets, many sad, some sublime: Eve of Destruction Barry McGuire; Masters of War Bob Dylan; 'Ike Warns of a Military/Industrial Complex'; Fightin' for the U.S.A. Jerry Reed; Ballad of the Green Berets Ssgt. Barry Sadler; Gallant Men Senator E.M. Dirksen; The Draft Dodger Rag Phil Ochs; 'Attacks in the Gulf of Tonkin/Resolution' President Lyndon Baines Johnson; An Open Letter to My Teenage Son Victor Lundberg; Kill for Peace Fugs; Simple Song of Freedom Tim Hardin; 'Bums on Campus...'
