Eddie Vedder also did a really good version. His voice registers the appropriate anger better than other versions I've heard.

Hola, @rc8149 

I am smiling because I find myself brain (because this is a family website) cramping more than I used to. so I know the feeling. Sigh. Life (among other things) happens.

Blessings to you.

@rc8149 The young lady who recorded "Band of Gold" was Freda Payne - There are several editions of "Bring the Boys Home" on You Tube. Have an amazing day.

Thanks to  DMELCHONI for the  'you tube'  site.   The Gent2U  also did that.

I went right to you tube and listened to "Eve of destruction"    Memories brought back.

 

The young lady that brought us the song "Band of gold', also had a protest song.

 

"Bring the boys Home"  fitted the era.    Interesting that this song did not make the

album 'Contact' for around the 50,000 sold,  After "bring the boys home" became a

hit, then it was added to the album.     Money talks !!!

 

PEACE

Masters of War    by      Bob Dylan

 

Leon Russel did a version of this around 1970.  He used Bob's words.  but the medley is

"The Star Spangled Banner"   Very interesting.........

Another Peter, Paul and Mary song that's appropriate here:

 

Down By The Riverside

 

"I ain't gonna study war no more"

"I'm gonna lay down that atom bomb, down by the riverside"

Now to continue with the song list..

 

Give Peace A Chance   by  John Lennon (with the "Plastic Ono Band")

 

This was recorded in May , 1969 at his "Bed In" at a Montreal Hotel in Canada

(Queen Elizabeth Hotel)  (How Brittish) :-)

The song became an athem for the anti-war movement in Vietnam.

About 30 years later,  he was quoted as saying, "I think we made a point there".

You really think so !!!!!!!

We are still singing, Give Peace A Chance"-   Hopefully someday................

Dear  Gent2U

 

I have always liked Peter, Paul and Mary..   I never heard this song before.

I finally went onto "You Tube", (The best way to find vintage stuff). (Also as

you suggested)

 

That song is not only beautiful, but it could be appropriate for any time era.

I really enjoyed listening to such a great trio performing as usually, at their best.

 

Thank you for sharing this with me.   Everyone should listening to this and just

"Light One Candle" also.

 

Please make a post if you happen to stumble onto this.

 

Thank you again Gent2U

Peace
