Soul of Vietnam !!

This is soul born from very confusing and turbulent times. Vietnam
was the Boogieman who could snatch you away to a living nightmare.
Long story short, there is a lot of pain, hope and soul in this compilation
of songs centered around the topic; A Vietnam OST, of sorts. Including
the likes of The Mighty Hannibal, The Impressions and Joe Tex,
it's well worth having. I ran across this CD a few years ago, and
enjoyed the content enough to justify posting it. Enjoy.
