Back in the mid-60's while living in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area there was quite a fluff over the anti-war song 'Eve of Destruction'. The popularity of EoD was spreading like a napalm fire. To counter this there was a group that came into the scene that fostered an opposing view of the War.
I remember a song then (1965) which came out called 'Dawn of Correction' by a virtually unknown band named 'The Spokesmen'. It is a completely opposite take on the message on Eve of Destruction....a reactionary/conservative take.
It's actually a pretty cool song (if an opposite view). You can google it up and hear it. Lyrics are easy to understand and all.
I just never hear any references about it and thought some of you folk fans of the day might get a kick from it. Check it out.
It seems to be the only song The Spokesmen ever did. What a world back then eh?
