Album 32Toby Hughes:

   I've known some pretty good fighter pilot lyricists through the years, Bobby Middleton, Thud Jock, Irv LeVine, also a Thud Jock and Chip Dockery who has flown the Phantom and a bunch of other stuff. But the warrior song-writing talents of Toby Hughes are unmatched by any of us. If there is a heavy thought you want to leave to posterity and you don't know how to say it, check with Toby. He has a way of reaching into the viscera, grabbing a fistful of guts and twisting until the pain goes away. He wrote the title song to this album, The Light In The Window. It is a tribute to those who had the toughest mission in any war -- stay home and wait.

Bridget Bradshaw:

   Bridget is two or three generations younger than those lyricists mentioned above. The Vietnam War had come and gone, and Desert Storm was on the horizon when she was born. Her eight songs on this album illustrate the changes which evolve in the warrior's psyche as the generations come and go.

Jake Brooks:

   Jake is a Tennessee songwriter with a keen perception of where the American common man finds himself today. You'll discover in his three songs Jake's convictions about the noble, courageous heart and soul of American tradition.

   Special thanks to my baby daughter, Angela Jonas, for her most excellent vocal rendition of Mom and Me.

The songs in this album come from a 2-set show at Randolph AFB TX. Set 1 was done for the San Antonio River Rats. Set-2 beginning at Cut 11 RBAAB was somewhat impromptu and a bit rowdier for a younger set of Air Force flyers. Also, present for Set-2 was a contingent of Strike Eagle jocks. No clue where they came from.

This album represents a landmark and a homecoming. I never dreamed when I wrote my first fighter pilot songs in the Vietnam War that there would someday be 30 disks. And I also never dreamed when I did my first show with Charlie Huff at Randolph AFB TX at a POW reunion in the mid 70s, that we would be raising hell at Randolph nearly 50 years later singing songs and spinning yarns like we did in the long ago. It kinda reminds me that he and I are still alive.

High Priced Help

The High Priced Help was a quartet of U.S. Army helicopter pilots assigned to the 174th Assault Helicopter Company at Fort Benning, Georgia, and transferred to the Republic of Vietnam in March 1966. They were stationed at Lane Army Heliport, west of Qui Nhon. In addition to their military responsibilities, the group volunteered to entertain the units of the 14th Combat Aviation Battalion at Lane AHP and at hospitals, clubs, and many field locations throughout Vietnam.

The quartet composed and sang these songs in 1966 and 1967 to entertain and relieve the stresses of daily combat; the songs do not necessarily express the views held today. This CD was reproduced using the tape that the group recorded in the Officers' Club at Lane AHP on February 27th, 1967.
