Product description

Certain parallels between those days and the present obsession with Homeland Security can be pretty scary. 'Deja vu all over again!' (New York Yankees catcher Yogi Berra).Over 100 vintage Cold War songs and more than two dozen frighteningly na've civil defense Public Service Announcements.Well-known stars like Bill Haley and His Comets, The Louvin Brothers, Marty Robbins, and Wanda Jackson to fascinating obscurities like The Goldwaters, Janet Greene (The Right Wing's answer to Joan Baez!) and Dr. Strangelove and the Fallouts.A DVD of nine bizarre civil defense and anti-Communist short films from the '50s and '60s.A 292 page hardcover book featuring numerous arresting images from the Cold War era. 67 years ago on August 6, 1945 the world changed forever over the skies of Hiroshima. Incredibly, this epochal event led to all manner of 'atomic' exploitation (Atomic Cocktails anyone ) and pop cultural strangeness (music, film, merchandise, etc.) as Americans tried to absorb the enormity of the horror its government had unleashed upon Japan. 'Atomic Platters' is the result of a years-in-the-making musical 'Manhattan Project' that collects over 100 vintage Cold War songs and more than two dozen frighteningly na've civil defense Public Service Announcements (many of these PSAs are voiced by celebrities such as Groucho Marx, Bob Hope, Pat Boone and Johnny Cash, to name just a few!) from the paranoid period that brought us fallout shelters, survival biscuits and uranium fever.The artists who sing about the Bomb and the Red Scare on this set run the gamut from well-known stars like Bill Haley and His Comets, The Louvin Brothers, Marty Robbins and Wanda Jackson to fascinating obscurities like The Goldwaters, Janet Greene (The Right Wing's answer to Joan Baez!) and Dr. Strangelove and the Fallouts...Read more at: https://www.bear-family.de/
