Includes songs by such luminaries as, John Lee Hooker, Sunnyland Slim, Jimmy Rogers, Lightnin' Hopkins, Bobby "Blue" Bland and more. Songs like Sunnyland Slim's "Back To Korea Blues" and John Lee Hooker's "Build Myself A Cave" combine bitterness with jingoism. Fans of this set will also be interested in "Win The War Blues" (JASMCD3147) which covers the blues & r&b artists involvement in the Second World War. Fully detailed liner notes.
