    See also Johnny Cash’s “The one on the left was on the right.”

       I put my 45 of that on my iPod a few years back.

      I haven’t done that yet with my LP “The Goldwaters Play Folk Songs to Bug the Liberals,” though. Discuss.

    Spooky man, would rather Gutenberg never did his thing than see opposing views in print.

    Could be that the world would be more pleasing to a Conservative mindset were there no advancements like printing presses. It sure seems they want to go back there sometimes.

    Eeeek. Folk is even worse than I thought!

    FWIW, the Conelrad page for Janet Greene is an interesting read; another voice in the chorus of nascent Women’s Lib experiences coming out of the ’50s U.S. entertainment biz. Sorry, no froth-and-spittle in that write-up: “Surprisingly, Greene actually admired her liberal anti-model [Baez] and went to see her in concert in the mid-sixties: “She was a wonderful artist, I thought…I’m not saying she was a Communist. She was just a liberal. You know that time, the sixties, all the mostly young people were swept away by free love and all that stuff.” I wonder what the anti-Communist house concerts were like….

      “I’m not saying she was a Communist. She was just a liberal.”

      Hmm. I think this line could work in a conservative folk song.

    “No change is blow’n in the wind…”

    Not surprisingly… it sucks.  Most conservatives are talentless hacks.  I mean, the best comedian they have to offer is Dennis Miller and he’s never recovered since his nervous breakdown on 9/11.  They have some good actors here and there.  But, overall… man… they suck.

    This reminds me of one of my favourite Kids in the Hall Sketches:

    Have the disc already. Great music (Janet Greene totally swings!) with impressive booklet/digipak full of period photos/covers etc…Couldn’t recommend it more for music lovers/esoteric buffs…

    To answer the question in Dolan’s song:
    BAEZ was very active in Poland and the Czech Republics’ non-violent resistance to the former Communist regimes.
