I have a cd of these, and they ARE recorded live. Here are some: http://www.amazon.com/Run-Cadence-U-S-Army-Airborne/dp/B00005OCZI
They're a snippet in time, of course, and you can tell the different guys they recorded have different collections in their heads.
It gives you an idea how HARD it must be to run, boots-and-pack, probably, and this guy is SINGING! BELTING, and making THEM sing! Now clap your hands! I actually use them when I run for an extra kick in the ass. They're short, and I have vowed never to stop running when one plays. Very motivational : )
Bet there's a book out there... would love to learn more about the evolution (folk process?) here throughout military history.
