As I’ve mentioned before, the
Alaska Highway 75th Anniversary CD is now available and
there is some good music on it, some good writing, good musicianship and good
recording. Bert Goulet even made me sound authoritative.
There is a promo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTt25BOVaqs
Here are some more videos about the building of the highway with some great views of the cable control Caterpillars, gallons of mud and gumbo (no, it isn’t the same as mud; walk in it for one minute and you’ll know the difference.) a look at some US Army Engineers and the civilian contractors.
