"Soul and funk recorded by US Army Servicemen during the height of the Vietnam War and released as albums by the US Army as recruitment tools. Archival reproduction of The Black Seeds/Sound Trek soul set, housed in a thick cardboard 'tip-on' gatefold LP. Bill Withers, O'Jays and Kool & The Gang covers. The Black Seeds and The Sound Trek were bands comprised of soldiers stationed in bases across western Germany. While little is known about the bands, the players, and the milieu they came from - other than what can be pieced together from a handful of photos and documents found in a box in the New York Public Library, and the vague recollections of some of those involved - we at Now-Again Records have worked diligently with the United States Army and researchers the country over to present this important document - and some damn good soul and funk music."
