I as reading the last review and I found it odd that someone would view a video to hear the backround music. In this case, it was "Country Joe" McDonald". I'm not sure why the previous reviewer thought "Country Joe" made country music. I liken Joe McDonald to events like "Woodstock", "Haight-Ashbury", the "Fillmore West" and the whole "Acid Scene" that writers like Ken Keasy wrote about. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test McDonald played no country music. Hs contempories were bands like "The Doors" who did a song called "The Unknown Soldier" and "The End" (both anti-Vietnam) and Jimi Hendrix who wrote "Isabella" and "Machine Gun" (also anti-Vietnam) Room Full of Mirrors: A Biography of Jimi Hendrix Regardless, Country Joe McDonald got together with a company called "MPI" and produced this amazing video that truly juxtaposed the horrors of Vietnam with the Vietnam Veterans Against the War marching on Washington Nam Vet : Making Peace with Your Past It also showed the "Days of Rage" where Mayor Richard Daly in Chicago during the 1968 Democratic Convention unleased his police "goons" against protesters against the war outside the convention Battleground Chicago: The Police and the 1968 Democratic National Convention juxtaposed with planes crisscrossing the rice paddies of South Vietnam giving the terrain a good dose of Dioxin.Read more ›

This is a compilation of songs published on other records. It is still good. Writing a protest song was and is just Country Joe McDonald’s way of saying hello. If you are interested in the 60s or the Vietnam War this is worth considering. The most known song on this album, The Fixing to Die Rag, is less raucous than the Woodstock version of that song and still a good version, with the advantage that I can play this one for the grand kiddies without their grandmother going ballistic. For a long time this album was only available at great cost but now it has been republished at a reasonable price and is worth considering.
