All The Young Soldiers

All The Young Soldiers

This is a unique collection of military songs compiled from Stan’s previous studio albums. His 36 years of service as a soldier have enabled him to capture and put into words the feelings, emotions and hardships experienced by soldiers at war over the years. From the First and Second World Wars, through to the troubles in Northern Ireland and the Balkans Conflict, he has produced a thoughtful and powerful range of songs.  The hard hitting “Sarajevo”, the poignant story of loss to loved ones behind “All The Young Soldiers”, the rousing “Call To Arms” and the evocative tribute to Wilfred Owen in “Laid To Rest”.  A collection to be contemplated, but not to be missed.
