raredance Review: Songs America Voted By. Fine collection (9) RE: Review: Songs America Voted By. Fine collection 21 Feb 03


I concur with Rick that it is a fascinating book. Another great book with a similar theme is "Music for Patriots, Politicians, and Presidents" by V B Lawrence (1975 Macmillan Publishing). The greatest era for USA political songs was the mid 1800's. The following three recordings contain an assortment of legitimate campaign songs.

    BRAND, OSCAR        Presidential Campaign Songs 1789-1996 (CD)

    Hail To the Chief!        American Political Marches, Songs & Dirges of the 1800's -CHESTNUT BRASS COMPANY & FRIENDS (CD)

JANOVSKY, PETER        Winners & Losers: Campaign from the Critical Elections in American History, Vol. II (LP Folkways)
