"When The War Was On" released in honor of the 100th anniversay of the US entry into WW1.

Brooklyn Pearl has released a new song and video of Blind Willie Johnson's "When The War Was On" to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War 1.

Blind Willie Johnson (January 25, 1897 – September 18, 1945) was an American gospel blues singer and guitarist and evangelist. This was one of the few topical songs he recorded in his lifetime, and we believe that it has never been covered before.
