Album Remarks & Appraisals:

The most iconic image to emerge from a WWII campaign to recruit women into the workforce is Rosie the Riveter. The strong, beautiful, bandana-clad factory worker would become the face of female wartime propaganda. We Can Do It features music from the WWII era, including hits like "In the Mood," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and "Sing, Sing, Sing," performed by the great musicians of the United States military, including the Airmen of Note, formed to carry on the tradition of Glenn Miller's Army Air Corps dance band. As a special addition in the liner notes, Rosebud Janet Wallace, tells the story of her grandmother, Joy Hagan, "the fastest riveter in the plant." Join us in honoring the women of World War II!
