The marxist minstrels, a handbook on communist subversion of music

Tulsa: American Christian College Press, 1974. CCP. iv, 346p., wraps slightly shelf worn, old price sticker partly removed on front wrap, rear blurb redacted with a large sticker / blurb from Summit Ministries Publications.

Analyzes songs of John Lennon especially, with extensive quotes in which Lennon says (for example) that he was undecided whether lyrics of "Revolution" should recommend "counting me in" or "counting me out," and that now his song has circulated he is leaning towards the "in" and is feeling more positive than he sounded in the song about "waving pictures of Chairman Mao." Discusses Pete Seeger at length (see index), also Phil Ochs, Malvina Reynolds, Dylan, Baez, Woody Guthrie and the Stones, with briefer mention of numerous others, lists performers and songs that got printed in "Sing Out!" Numerous citations of William J. Bryan (Hollywood "mind control" expert) and Ivan Pavlov.
