Three Artist's Music Chosen for History Channel Documentary
Three tracks have been selected so far by Ken Hatley, music supervisor of The History Channel who conducted a search for songs with a sound and feel of the Vietnam War era.
The songs selected were Too Young To Die by Barbara Lee George, Caught In A Lie by Muck and the Mires, and Bail Out by Ben Novak. Ken says he's been impressed with the quality of the submissions and is still seeking a few more songs that have sounds like early David Bowie, Bad Company, Dells & Intruders.

Levee connected her to a British rock group known as The 253 Boys, named after a bus line, which needed vocal harmonies for their U.S. tour. “If you want great harmonies, check out Barbara Lee George,” he’d told them.

Sergeant Dixon loves his Barbara George CD
I welcomed Mark as my new neighbor when we were both students at Goshen Central High School.
This year I was delighted to receive a phone call from Mark letting me know that he would be returning
to New York for an event at which his Army Service Career was going to be honored. Mark returned to Goshen, but this time he stayed at my mom's B&B. My family eagerly gathered to visit with Mark and
we shared wonderful nostalgic stories, some funny, all moving.... Before Mark left I asked him if he
would kindly take a case of my CDs with him to Afghanistan and share my music with the soldiers. He
graciously agreed and here he is with one very special soldier *SPC Ty Carter, who will be receiving
more recognition for his bravery in combat soon.
I am moved and grateful to you both, my new and old friend and all those who serve!
