Available now when you sign up for BJ Thomas’ newsletter, you can receive a FREE download of the song “Honorable Peace” which has quite a back-story:
BJ recorded the song “Honorable Peace” on an album entitled “Songs” in 1973. It was BJ, Jerry Goffin and Steve Tyrell’s Artistic expression in opposition to the Nixon administration and the war in Vietnam. BJ was told that the track had been erased and lost forever, this was hugely upsetting at the time but eventually he moved on. BJ was signed to Paramount Records owned by Gulf+Western, somebody censored it. BJ still thought the track was lost until a music historian mentioned the track was available in England a few years ago and later we found out it was also released in Japan, where BJ obtained a copy. “Honorable Peace” has never been available in the United States that BJ is aware of. The “Songs” album is a quirky signature work from back in the day and is one of BJ’s greatest artistic accomplishments. For the first time in America if you sign up for the mailing list you can download “Honorable Peace” free now.
