Subject: RE: Origins: eve of destruction
I've got the 45 single somewhere in a box -- along with the "answer" song, "Dawn of Correction."

Did a quick search for "Eve of Destruction" and it's amazing how many sites credit Barry MCGuire for writing it instead of P.F. Sloan.

Just found this about "Dawn of Correction"
    - written by Raymond J. Gilmore, John Madara and David White
       (The Spokesmen)
    - David White was formerly with Danny & The Juniors - as recorded by
       The Spokesmen (released September 18, 1965)
    - entered the Billboard Top 40 the week of October 9, 1965 and stayed
       for 3 weeks, peaking at #36 the week of October 16, 1965
    - answer song to Barry McGuire's "Eve of Destruction"
