*Attack ads*, *character assassinations*, and *spin doctors* are not new in American Presidential campaigns. Before radio and television, campaign songs were written and published to transmit similar ideas and influence voters. This collection includes one song from the campaign of every President, from George Washington to William Clinton performed by folk singer Oscar Brand and recorded in 1998. Set to marches and popular tunes, accompanied by banjo, guitar, percussion, and wind, these songs present some of the enduring themes of American political campaigns and the events that have influenced them. Includes "Follow Washington", "Jefferson and Liberty", "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too", "Lincoln and Liberty", "Grant, Grant, Grant", "Roosevelt the Cry", "I'm Just Wild About Harry", "Buckle Down With Nixon", "California Here We Come", "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" and 33 others. 69 minutes, extensive notes.
