You can write to Barry "The Fish" Melton from Country Joe & The Fish,
who's "Fixin' To Die Rag" was featured on the best selling album on

Good luck

From: "ANDREW H. LEE" <>

There is always the standard _Sing Out_. We have that and numerous
other works of portest music as well as histories and other studies
that place the songs in context, biographies of singers, etc...even
dense theoretical treatments of song and a classic anti-communist work about
music: David A. Noebel. _The Marxist minstrels; a handbook on communist
subversion of music_. Tulsa: American Christian College Press, 1974.
The catch is you have to come hgere to use the materials becasue we
cannot do research for people nor do we lend.
