As a history teacher, I am constantly on the lookout for music that can help to bring the past alive. This CD does a wonderful job for both the American Revolution and the Civil War. While the country twang of some of these pieces may jar young sensibilities, students quickly warm to the authentic verve of the performances. The Revolutionary period includes such chestnuts as the "Riddle Song" (and actually omits "Yankee Doodle"), but also some jokes of the period, including a hysterical folk version of a taming of a shrew. The Civil War period is split between northern and southern songs. There are the standards "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Dixie," but also more obscure songs like "Lincoln and Liberty" and "Goober Peas." All in all, a great tool, especially for the price.

Petula Clark - Songs Of My Life: The Essential (2005) 3CD Set [Re-Up]

Petula Clark - Songs Of My Life: The Essential (2005) 3CD Set

Genre: AM Pop, British Invasion, Early Pop Rock | Label: Sanctuary | # SMETD231 | Time: 03:49:59

There are almost more Petula Clark collections than there were actual songs (that's saying something), and Sanctuary's three-disc Songs of My Life: The Essential Petula Clark is one of the better ones. Split into three themes, "Swinging Times," "Mellow Moods," and "Beautiful Sounds," Songs of My Life relies heavily on the English pop sensation's peak '60s and '70s output. All of the key radio hits are here ("Downtown," "I Know a Place," "My Love," "This Is My Song"), as well as countless ballads, uptempo pop gems, and choice covers. Fans looking for a decent career overview (sadly, none of Clark's vast arsenal of French hits are here) may find the 78 tracks that populate Songs of My Life a bit overwhelming, but they're well worth spending some quality time alone with.

When Mickey Hart's name is mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is the drummer's years with the Grateful Dead. But in fact, Hart has done a lot of worthwhile things outside of the Dead, including some world music projects. Produced by Hart in 1990, Honor the Earth Powwow: Songs of the Great Lakes Indians is one of his crowning achievements. This CD, which Hart produced, documents a Native American powwow in a rural area of northern Wisconsin. For the uninitiated, a powwow is a traditional musical/spiritual ceremony by Native Americans; the powwow heard on this disc celebrates nature, God, and Native American culture.
