Album Notes
"Smoky’s Theme" was composed during a night flight over the Atlantic, inspired by Corporal Wynne and Smoky’s search and rescue mission during a dark, early morning flight over the Pacific. The crew faced a drastic thunderstorm and imminent airborne attack. Sensing the worst, I imagined Wynne pulling out his harmonica, playing a simple, solemn Irish dirge in an attempt to calm fears. With Smoky at his side, skies eventually clear, and all are at peace.

"Ain’t No Mystery" is delivered from the heart by Nashville singer Lacey Canfield, who combines 1940's era love, hope, and entertainment as Bill advises Margie that he will soon be off to war in the Pacific.

"Onward," composed by Will Tabar while in-flight to Australia, provides New Guinea drama during Ed’s solo jeep ride into the jungle where he is surrounded by the unknown .. when his jeep stalls. The uplifting Angel in a Foxhole highlights Smoky’s transcendence from a jungle foxhole to an entirely new world.

"On Stage" was written to honor the 3-octave Hammond Solovox keyboard player who fearlessly performed with Bill and Smoky, playing “The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze” as Smoky walked the tight-wire.

"Thinking of You Now" captures those calming moments of thought and reflection that are essential to everyone’s lives, while "Drama in the Pacific" heightens the intensity felt by Bill as Smoky works to break through sand piles that seeped through joints of the 70 ft. long drain pipe through which she travels.

"Smoky’s Theme – Arrival" provides ambience for the warm and tender post-war homecoming of Bill and Smoky as they surprise his fiancé, Margie – with timpani drums waning as artillery fire.

The jazz piece, "Falling For You," first hinted at during Bill and Margie’s arrival at the jazz club, provides energy with Will’s leading sax run. Credits roll as we hear Bill and Smoky’s actual voices from a 1945 radio broadcast by Susan Tate of the American Red Cross, “Live from Manila in the Philippines” in the film version of the song.

In "Beloved Friend" (aka Smoky), music not heard in the film, Wynne learns that the plane he was initially assigned to for a search and rescue / photo-recon mission went down in a storm, with no survivors .. while lyrics demonstrate the corollary strength and healing power of love .. between a dog, and a man.
