Life Between The Wars

Album: Life Between The Wars (1995)

Songfacts®:

  • The downtempo title track of Al's 1995 album runs to 2 minutes 47 seconds, and is not one of his best efforts. Entirely different in tone and subject matter from Billy Bragg's similarly named "Between The Wars", this is less historical folk rock than unwarranted nostalgia with a bit of history thrown in. >>
