Ah, the halcyon days when the Birch Society, the Christian Anti-Communist Crusdade, and the like had not yet metastisized into the later "Moral majority" form! This is the written equivalent of a combo of "Reefer Madness" and "Plan 9 From Outer Space"! Here, the subject is the well known Communo-Athiest conspiracy to morally subvert American youth through rock and roll. (What energy those commie preverts had! You'd have thought that their energy would have been sapped just trying to get American water supplies fluoridated.) The text is priceless. You'll read commentaries on perversities going back to Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and other commies up to more recent moral degenerates like Dylan and the Beatles (the commentaries on the Beatles and their groupies alone justify acquisition). Probably, though, the most valuable part is the appendix that lists (in order of commiedom) the "most communistic" performers. (Yes, "Joannie Phony" is up there, but not #1.) It will serve as an invaluable buying guide for your acquisition of prime, quality, classic folk and rock.

Four stars for the outrageous low, low taste humor of the text. Wow.

The theme: Communist agents strumming guitars and singing folk tunes are a threat to the U.S. way of life. Well, about this book:

1966, roughly 3"x 5" pocket paperback, total 352 pages deep. 249 pages of book, balance of the pages thereafter various appendixes. Miniscule print. This book was reprinted/reissued verbatim as the 1974 title THE MARXIST MINSRELS, A HANDBOOK ON COMMUNIST SUBVERSION OF MUSIC, larger book, larger type. The only difference between the two books/editions lies in Part Three of Parts 1-8, which rejiggers chapters 3-5 (three chapters in the 1966 edition) of Part Three into six chapters in the later MARXIST MINSTRELS, updating the 1966 chapters of the early Beatles into rock music generally going into the early `70s.

Folk, then rock, music is mind control. Chapter 1, "Communist Use of Mind Control." Brainwashing, mind-control, diabolical intrigues, "menticide" - a lethal psychological process that produces a literal suicide of the mind! - footnoted to Edward Hunter's book, BRAINWASHING, nerve-jamming, retardation, hypnotism....

Indoctrination begins for babies as early as ages one or two, via communist educational records with titles such as MUFFIN IN THE COUNTRY, SLEEPY FAMILY, THE LITTLE FIREMAN, THE LITTLE COWBOY, OUT OF DOORS, THE LITTLE PUPPET, and WHEN I GROW UP, via Young Peoples Records and Pram Records labels, Book of the Month Club, and the Children's Record Guild, "...subsidized no doubt by Moscow....
