Dan, I had the same sense about the adaptation of the lyrics on the Dear Jean CD.
You beat me to the punch on posting that YouTube link.
The combination of Jean Ritchie's lyrics and tune, the wonderful ensemble of voices, and the video images of "sad scenes of destruction on every hand" in that video is extremely powerful! It needs to be seen and heard by more and more people every day.
