Album Notes
In the mid '60s, John Madara, David White and D.J. Raymond Gilmore formed a group called The Spokesmen. They released "The Dawn of Correction," an answer song to the enormous hit "Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire. The song was very controversial. Time Magazine did an article on the two songs, comparing The Spokesmen lyrics with the Barry McGuire lyrics. In some cases they were not permitted to sing the song on the air and had to replace it with another song. The following text is taken from the original 1965 LP:

"Throughout the history of popular music, the tastes of each generation have reflected the tempo and the attitudes of its time. The success of these trends and their acceptance by the public have been a barometer for musical pundits down through the ages, to wit: in whatever direction a generation is going, so goes the music of that generation.

"The Spokesmen are aptly named, for they represent the voice of a generation, that has endured may and frequent changes. But there is good reason to feel strong confidence in the future so long as there remains the youthful optimism of tomorrow's leaders, as expressed in the words and music of "The Spokesmen."
