It’s like these 1940s movies were made just so, 70 years later, they could accompany the music of Clothesline Revival:
Clothesline Revival has a couple HV connections. They helped create a mess in our Food Fight episode. And we produced the NPR Story “Clothesline Revival’s ‘Long Gone’” (also check NPR’s “Music Review: ‘Of My Native Land’ from Clothesline Revival“).
CR samples extensively from ancient audio archives, especially in their first two CDs, Of My Native Land and Long Gone. Their latest, featuring “Voice of the Lobster” — the song in the vid — is They Came From Somewhere.
