Product Description

Product Description

: Oscar Brand has devoted entire albums to such subjects as drinking, presidential campaigns, sports cars, cats, dogs, boating and, of course, bawdy songs. But of all his albums, these four, recorded for each branch of the armed services, were among his most popular, and truly their commercial success helped Elektra gain financial footing back in the early days of the label. Indeed, they were especially well-received by our troops, who no doubt appreciated the, er, "salty" tang of Oscar's renditions. We "enlisted" Oscar's aid for the notes, too, a one-of-a-kind Collectors' Choice Music exclusive!

3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing songs Dec 10 2006
Format:Audio CD
The songs on this CD are quite amusing! The only Oscar Brand recording I had ever heard before I heard this CD, was his "Sports Car Songs" album, which was given to me by a relative when I was just a kid. One bit of information lacking on this CD that I would have appreciated are the release dates of each of the 4 albums that are on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way Warriors Were June 4 2008
By Junie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This collectors edition re-release of Oscar Brand's four classic records of American military songs recorded back in the Fifties and early Sixties is more than worth its price. Covering the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps, Brand has chosen what he considered to be representative informal songs actually written and sung by the guys who did the fighting.

The lyrics are raunchy (well, not by today's standards) and have been lightly cleaned up in places. They are humorous--the kind of humor you would expect from civilians in uniform doing a nasty job with real risks involved. The music bed is universally derived from old tunes which every grunt, zoomie, swab-jock and gyrene would have known from childhood.

For anyone who wants to catch something of the spirit of the guys who fought our wars--World Wars I and II, the Korean War, this two CD set will do the job. I hope that someone, some day does the same for the Vietnam War and our current wars. Of course, now the women get to have some music too,

5.0 out of 5 stars Oscar Brand Gets It Right! Sept. 20 2007
By A. Laidlaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are some funny songs in this collection. I am partial to "Every Inch A Sailor" since I first heard that album when the crew of my ship played "Quantanamo Bay" over the ships intercom as we were steaming out of the harbor after an 8 week stay at Gitmo. You favorites may be based on what branch off the service you served in.

Brought back a lot of memories for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings back memorys of my youth. Feb. 4 2011
By Phillip E. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember hearing these songs/ditty's when I was a sailor homeported overseas on a permanetly deployed ship. They gave me and my shipmates a laugh as we would unwind with a few cool ones after a tough day. Back then they were on a scratched up (due to repeated use) LP, the quality on the CD is great and the nostalga quota was amazing.
