Free download “Honorable Peace”: For the first time in America

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.

    • Thank you for your free download of “Honorable Peace”. I have always loved that song and had the album “Songs” after it first came out! Would love to know more of the history of the song. Have bought the CD years ago. I have tried often to download this song but only succeeded tonight. This year has been BIG for you B. J. and your longtime fans. It is so great to see and hear and read such positive and frequent news and music about you. I do hope all is well with you and your family. I did read that there may be a movie made about your life and made in Brazil. I hope so. Thank you, again. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
      Love, Kathy Tracy

      • I’ve been a fan since the early ’70’s. This song is so heartfelt.I love that it was found.Thank you!I;m excited because tonight I’ll be seeing you perform in the small city of Wis.Rapids,Wisconsin.This will be the second time for me. The first was in the early 70’s. See you there!

  1. I also have been a big fan of yours for years.Istill even have a couple of 45’s, that I could not part with. Now and then I bring them out and listen to them. They are a bit scratchy from years ago use,as they were my favorites! I have an old L.P. album. On the back Louis Lofredo states”I had a dream when I first started in music that I would work with B.J.Thomas. It took 12 years. To me,this album is a dream fulfilled and a inspiration.Hopefully,it will provide you with as much pleasure while you listen.From this I will make a prediction that 1977 will be the beginning or rebirth of the name B.J.Thomas as it lives on for generations of musical eras. B.J.Thomas is a universal name encompassing all walks.He has proven many many times he can sing a melody and touch the soul of country folks,city dwellers, and suburban gentry.Listen……here he comes again-B.J.’s back again.” Well, B.J. you are here to say. And I am so proud to say I’m a big fan! I’ll have the pleasure of seeing you perform tonight, here in the small city of Wis.Rapids in Wisconsin. I’m so excited! See you there! I LOVE YOU!
