Cold War Country Blues is Track 2 from Bap’s album Howl On. You can read HERE Bap's notes about the album in full, and what inspired it.
Bap also wrote a few lines about each of the songs individually - Here’s what he wrote about Cold War Country Blues:
Was there a Space Race instead of a nuclear war between Russia and America? Maybe.
The frontiersmen who went to the moon took country music to new heights. The pay was terrible but the view was incredible.
- Bap Kennedy, 2009
And in case you're wondering, they really did "take Hank Williams to the moon" -
Among the music that the astronauts took on their lunar journeys were the songs of Bap's song writing hero, Hank Williams. (The things I learned from Bap !)
Thanks for appreciating Bap's music, and for helping me to keep it alive by sharing it.
