Let's Put the Axe to the Axis - Songs of World War II, Volume I

This collection reflects the exigencies of recording topical songs, which were written and produced quickly and usually enjoyed only brief popularity. Some songs, like "Letter to Hitler," attempted to lighten the burden of fear with laughter, while others, like "I Threw a Kiss in the Ocean," addressed families at home.
