Product Description & Reviews
4-CD deluxe boxed set with 160-page hardcover book, 121 tracks in all. Rarely heard documentary audio material, including patriotic public service announcements, field news reports and even a plea for blood donations from Howdy Doody! A richly illustrated, colorfully illustrated book with detailed artist and song notes as well as a history of the Korean War. The bound book is in a sturdy slipcase (approx. 28 x 28 cm) similar to the current Woody Guthrie ''Tribute Concerts'' set. There is detailed background information on each of the approximately 100 songs included in the edition, as well as artist biographies and extra chapters with transcriptions of the texts, illustrated with photos of that time, advertisements, flyers, magazines, record sleeves, book covers and other memorabilia. Among the book's special chapters are an interview with Frankie Miller, recalling his time in Korea, and a nine-page section with photos and newspaper headlines describing Marilyn Monroe's visit to the troops. At the time of the 1953 ceasefire agreement, which ended the war, some 327,000 US soldiers were still in Korea. In the course of 1954, this number was reduced by more than 30% to just over 225,000. Many of these troops were fortunate enough to see Marilyn Monroe during her four-day USO tour of the military bases in February of 54. Many of the photos of Marilyn, who fulfilled her ''patriotic duty'' in Korea for thousands of grateful soldiers, were only recently found in the archives of the US Army and have rarely been seen before.
