(Nov. 11, 2018): Bill Carrothers – I Didn’t Raise My Boy To Be A Soldier – Armistice Day

From the 2004 double CD, Armistice 1918.  Obviating the need to remember sacrifice by teaching peace and resisting war is the best homage that can be paid to the fallen. The incessant celebration of war and the military is the greatest disrespect. The physical copy of the album includes a 36 page booklet with period photos, poems, and liner notes by Mr. Carrothers and Thomas Compere-Morel, curator of l’Historial de la Grande Guerre, a museum of the Great War in Peronne (Somme region).
