Thread Name: Lyr Req:The Sound of Protest (Hellerman, Carter)
Subject: RE: Fred Hellerman's 'The Sound Of Protest'
Yes - it was "well fed rebel" and the song was inspired by the success of "Sound of Destruction" by Barry Maguire. When we did the arrangement, the Byrds were the musical inspiration - primarily because their sound was so fantastic. Take it as an homage to Jim McGuinn from a friend. The phenomenal thing about this recording was the fact that I was singing that incredibly high harmony instead of the melody (above JD!) Don't know what in the world I was on, but I know I could never do it again! Thanks for all the compliments - I've alsways felt this was never "gotten" by anyone.
