AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine [-]
Bear Family is no stranger to ambitious box sets, but they’ve never attempted anything as monumental as ...Next Stop Is Vietnam: The War on Record 1961-2008, a staggering 13-disc aural history of the U.S. entanglement in 'Nam. The size of the set is suitably weighty for the topic, and the leisurely length allows explorations of plenty of curious detours -- left turns that wind up telling more about how the war cut into the fabric of American society than

The history of the Vietnam War has been told many times in hundreds of books, movies and plays. But Next Stop Is Vietnam explores the impact of that conflict through the popular music it inspired.
In 1969, Gary Hall was an orthopedic technician at the 17th Field Hospital in An Khe, in Vietnam's Central Highlands. He saw what seemed to be an endless stream of wounded and dead, and Hall says music took him away, at least temporarily.
"In An Khe, the popular song was 'Love One Another' [by] The Youngbloods," Hall says. " 'Come on people now, smile on each other, everybody get together, gonna love one another right now.' That's the one I remember really strongly."
But if you ask a lot of veterans, the song that captures their feelings about Vietnam is "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," a 1960s pop hit by The Animals, which was really about young people trapped in a British urban slum.

Coincidentally, it's a 40-plus-year overview of rock'n'roll itself, spanning every genre from the expected topical folk (Seeger, Ochs, Paxton) to exploitative pop in search of a hit. Only around 40 choices were automatic, ranging from Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler's gung-ho No 1, The Ballad Of The Green Berets to Give Peace A Chance and Marvin Gaye's What's Going On. Each disc is themed: exploring early war songs, keeping the flag flying, anti-war protest, war is hell and war is over. Draft dodgers split the nation, many right-wing country songs adopting the "America: Love It Or Leave It" stance, notably Victor Lundberg's extraordinary 1968 Top 10 hit, An Open Letter To My Teenage Son, advising his son that if he burns his draft card: "From that moment on - I have no son."

Vilket som – tyska skivbolaget Bear Family har gjort det igen och frågan är om de någonsin har gjort det bättre. Nog för att återutgivningsbolaget tidigare grävt på arkeologisk jungfrumark tidigare, boxar med tyska judiska orkestrar är ett sådant spår, aningen skiljt från den totala genomgången av Sun-arkivet.

VARIOUS ARTISTS ...Next Stop Is Vietnam: The War On Record 1961-2008 Bear Family 13-CD box set/book www.bear-family.de
Unprecedented in terms of its sheer scope, the comprehensive-ness of its all inclusive approach, the depth of research involved and the determination of Bear Family to do justice to what is a truly monumental subject -there has never been a box set quite like this. Housed in a 12" x 12" slipcase sleeve ...Next Stop comprises 13 CDs, containing a total of 334 tracks and a playing time of some 16 hours and 49 minutes, accompanied by a full colour hardback book with a foreword by Country Joe McDonald detailing the history of the conflict which came to be known as the first rock 'n' roll war. Each of the 13 discs is organised around themes (Proud To Serve, Hell No - We Won't Go, Peace, Now!), which reflect the various phases and key events in the unravelling history of the conflict and the diversity of responses to it both on the battlefield and back at home in the US.
