The Day War Broke Out - EMI - EM 1341

£9.99

Product description

One thing that is often overlooked when remembering the Second World War, when calling to mind the horrors, the state of deprivation in to which the country sunk, the bravery and the gloaming warmth and unity which comes with the spirit of survival, with fighting a colossal and insidious force of oppression. Yes, what does not come to mind immediately, which is not reflected upon, was the role entertainment played in the War. Particularly music, and the meaning which it acquired contrary to it's meaning in peacetime, it's purpose reaching far beyond that of merely frivolously lighting the hearts of listeners, becoming a force which could profoundly affect morale, which could mean the difference between a cloying, deep despair and an optimism, a will to fight, clawed from the ruins of destruction and grief.
Of the army, the navy, and the air force, at the mercy of conditions set by violence, could well be flung to the most untenable regions of battle, it is not always considered that artistes would accompany, would take the same risks as they, would with the same perseverance create a beauty in sound. To face a growing wealth of desolation. Indeed, artistes like Glenn Miller and Leslie Howard, sacrificed their lives in the noble pursuit of bringing music to an environment which seemed so senseless. Box is magnificent, small scuffing on the corners.
Vinyl are in admirable condition, not scratched and with meagre dust.
