Singing Peace to Power

You may love them or you may hate them but you can't ignore them after you hear these political/protest/country/folk style songs about peace and our troubled world. The lyrics will linger long after the CD player is silent.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If we can sing together, we can march to victory together! "Annie and the Vets" invites you to join with us in "Singing Peace to Power!"

"Annie and the Vets", all members of "Veterans for Peace," who perform live at events in the San Francisco Bay Area now have produced their second CD with the hope that in some small way, their music will make known the true cost of war. Fans who purchased multiple copies of their first CD carried them to their friends and relatives in England and France. While only sold in the United States, we have reports that the CD also reached Germany, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand. We hope that will happen again with our second CD, "Singing Peace to Power."


PERFORMERS
George Johnson -
US Navy, Vietnam, 1962-66

"When I met George I realized that his voice had the quality I was looking for so I asked him to sing with Anne and me, not knowing if he could. We were lucky because George had once been a drummer and, along with his excellent timing, he can sing on key!" (Phil Pflager)

According to the Palo Alto Weekly, George has an "...emotion-filled voice (that) sounds like he gargles with gravel every morning."




Phil Pflager -
US Air Force, 1961-65 (incl. Vietnam)
After discovering the electric guitar, Phil played in rock & roll and country bands from high school through his military service. He more recently discovered acoustic music and organized a Bluegrass band that played at the Good Old- Fashioned Bluegrass festival in Hollister, California. When it became apparent that the government had forsaken the goal of a peaceful world, songs of peace took center stage and other musical endeavors moved to the back burner. While "Annie and the Vets" isn't his only musical interest, it now takes up most of his spare time.


Anne E. Pflager - Veterans' Supporter
Anne is the "Annie" in "Annie and the Vets." She has a mind like a tape recorder and is able to remember the lyrics to hundreds of songs as well as the tunes. In the past ten years she has developed a solid guitar style which supports most of the songs that 'Annie and the Vets" perform.


Navy veteran Lynne Hill
We used the special finger-style guitar skills of Navy veteran Lynne Hill when we recorded a song by Larry Penn, "The Sins of the Father." We wanted to duplicate Larry's guitar style as closely as possible and Lynne did an excellent job!


"Annie and the Vets" hope that you will join us in "Singing Peace to Power" and we hope that you will tell your friends of our CD!

Proceeds received from sales of this CD are going to Veterans for Peace.

Jane Spann

Very cleverly addresses all of our current progressive issues
Awesome are ALL of the songs! Your Flag Decal, Have You Been To Jail, Reach Out To One, Vinegar and Oil especially touched my sister and me. Singing Peace To Power is an ideal gift for your progressive friends as it sings our story to the world!

If it's Good for Camp Casey it's good for you and me
I hear-tell that some of these songs were sung at San Jose, California's version of Camp Casey...Camp Ken, named after fallen soldier Ken Ballard. If it's good enough for Camp Casey, it's good for you and me. You gotta love this stuff.
