Thread Name: Lyr Req:The Sound of Protest (Hellerman, Carter)
Subject: RE: Fred Hellerman's 'The Sound Of Protest'
Yessir, Dave, I have the double CD you mention and two others of the two-fer's, so that's 6 Mitchell Trio albums - they're available at Collectors' Choice Music, http://www.ccmusic.com/. Those three CD's are wonderful, but the rest of the available recordings are a hodgepodge of live and "greatest hits" CD's. I have 10 CD's from the group - but among those 10, there's a lot of duplication and a number of cuts I don't have.
I think I could buy "well-fed rebel," but it could be a number of words in that line. Fred Hellerman and Lee Hays wrote a number of really great songs that didn't get recorded by the Weavers, and some aren't available on recordings by anybody. They remain alive only in the memories of a rapidly-decreasing number of people. I'm not quite old enough to have those memories. It took this thread to introduce me to "Sound of Protest."
