Frankfurt, West Germany, August, 1961: Country music star Hank Snow and his Rainbow Ranch Boys perform in front of a packed house at the Rhein-Main Air Base NCO club during a tour of bases in Europe. The Nova Scotia-born Snow, who sold over 70 million records during his career, was no stranger to the troops; over the years, he played at bases in Korea, Vietnam, Germany, France, Norway, Italy, England and Japan.
