Dramatically interspersed are a few snippets of speeches by leading figures of the time such as President Roosevelt, General Eisenhower, and Winston Churchill.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Till Then: Music That Helped Allies Win War reminisces back to the days of WWII and the traditional pop music that characterized those perplexing times. This double disc is an appropriate collection of classics from Nat "King" Cole, Bing Crosby, Dinah Shore, the Andrews Sisters, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw & His Orchestra, making it an easy listen for any conservative fan or newcomer to the music of that era.
