Famous Songs of the First World War CD

The Great War was a prolific time for new songs. Most were patriotic in a way it is difficult to imagine now, but love, in all its facets, never changes. With the benefit of hindsight we can share what our forebears heard and, with the benefit of modern recording techniques, we can also enjoy better sound quality than was available to them. Among the splendid singers are Peter Dawson, John McCormack, Billy Murray, Violet Loraine, George Robey and Harry Lauder — the last two receiving knighthoods for their wartime charity work.

Track Listing:
It’s a long way to Tipperary
Pack up your troubles in your old kitbag
The tanks that broke the ranks
Oh how I hate to get up in the morning
A bachelor gay
It’s time for every boy to be a soldier
There’s a long long trail a winding
If you were the only girl in the world
How ya gonna keep ‘em down on the farm?
Keep the home fires burning
The laddies who fought and won
For your country and my country
At the calico ball
When I send you a picture of Berlin
Goodbye Broadway, Hello France
My sweetheart is somewhere in France
Till we meet again
Goodbye and luck be with you laddie boy
Indianola; Over there
Roses of Picardy
Where do we go from here?
My dream of the big parade
