DaveA Lyr Req:The Sound of Protest (Hellerman, Carter) (20) Lee Hellerman's 'The Sound Of Protest' 17 Jan 05

It seems coincidental that recently there has been discussion about John Denver & The Chad Mitchell Trio. After a long delivery time, I received today the double LP (compressed to one cd) of the definitive works of the Mitchell Trio - That's The Way It's Gonna Be & Violets Of Dawn

I have several favourite tracks from this compilation, but what sent me back on my heels was "The Sound of Protest" from the Violets of Dawn contribution. OK, it's almost 40 years since it was released & an ex wife has the vinyl so it has taken me a while to wake up to this gem.

But, hearingat it now, how the hell did the Byrds look themselves in the mirror after hearing it??

If all else fails, I'll key in the words (once I memorise them again) but it i a song that deserves to live on.

Did anyone else other than the Mitchell Trio record it???
